Aunt Chelle's Three-Cheese Macaroni and Cheese

The melty blend of Gouda, American and extra-sharp cheddar cheese bubbles up and browns to a crunchy finish on top of Aunt Chelle's famous mac and cheese.

Shrimp Fried Rice

Ease into Chinese takeout at home with this easy fried rice. Just make sure not to overcook the shrimp — take it out of the pan the second it starts to turn pink.

Balsamic and Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Go beyond basic Brussels sprouts by adding bacon, Parmesan and pine nuts.

Whole Beef Tenderloin with Cherry Tomato Salsa

Rev's manager, Michael, calls himself a grill master for good reason. His steakhouse-worthy grilled beef tenderloin is great on its own, but garlic, rosemary and balsamic-spiced burst cherry tomato salsa takes it to the next level.

Fried Catfish with Tartar Sauce

Rev's friend Perry is the self-proclaimed king of frying, and he loves his crispy, lemony catfish so much that he entered it in a cook-off against Michael's beef tenderloin. Rev probably didn't mind judging that chomp-etition.

Roasted Baby Potatoes with Rosemary and Garlic

Earthy rosemary and toasted garlic make these potatoes as flavorful as they are colorful.

Double Chocolate Cake

Add some nutritional value to chocolate cake with coconut oil. Then make things decadent again with chocolate cream cheese frosting.

Glazed Salmon with Mango Pecan Salsa

Orange-maple-glazed broiled salmon gets a sweet and crunchy accent from mango-pecan salsa.

Baked Stuffed Apples with Honeyed Greek Yogurt

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and it's easier to get fruit in your diet when it's stuffed with buttery cinnamon-spiced walnuts and topped with honeyed yogurt.

Buffalo Wings, 2 Ways

Indecisive? Make traditional Buffalo wings with hot sauce and butter, and also make sticky Asian wings with garlic-chili sauce, hoisin and teriyaki.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Garlic Aioli

Spruce up baked sweet potato fries with a quick, semi-homemade garlic aioli. Just combine store-bought mayonnaise with grated garlic, lemon juice, smoked paprika, and salt and pepper.

Rev Run's Gotta-Be-On-Time Prime Rib Holiday Roast Au Jus with Horseradish Sauce

Ditch the holiday ham this year and make Rev's showstopping prime rib. It's shockingly easy to make — just stuff garlic into slits into the meat and roast it low and slow.

Mixed Berry Iced Tea

Berries are cooked down with sugar to make a refreshing iced tea. Keep things cold with strawberry ice cubes that add even more fruity flavor to the tea instead of just diluting it.

Pizza

Host pizza night at home. The sky's the limit with topping options, and you'll immediately be addicted to the crunch from the cornmeal crust.

Roasted Cracked Crab

Don't be afraid of fish and oyster sauces — the Asian ingredients lend well-balanced salty flavor to roasted crab. 

Roasted Chicken Club

Have a room service night at home with a classic club sandwich, stacked with roasted chicken, bacon, lettuce and tomato. Take it to the next level with crispy onion rings on the side — or even inside!

Rev Run's Grilled Chicken Quesadillas

Who can deny the pull of gooey melted cheese and juicy chicken inside grilled tortillas? While they're sizzling away, stir together a quick pico de gallo for piling on top.

Lemony Scones with Strawberry Compote

These tart lemon scones with jammy strawberry compote taste like you slaved over the oven all day, but they actually take only 15 minutes of active prep time — the rest is just waiting for them to bake and cool.

High Tea Meatball Sliders

Meatball sandwiches aren't typically thought of as haute cuisine, but Rev dresses his sliders up with homemade marinara sauce, fresh basil and plenty of cheese.

German Chocolate Cake

Chocolate and coconut is a match made in heaven. Indulge yourself, or surprise your loved ones with the sticky-sweet cake.

Justine's Mom's Fried Chicken

All you need to do is simply dredge chicken in onion-and-garlic-powder-flavored flour to ensure an ultra-crisp coating.

Slow-Cooker Banana Leaf Pork

Five ingredients and eight hours in the slow cooker make for a fall-apart-tender dinner. Just wrap fresh ginger, soy sauce and brown sugar-marinated pork in banana leaves, then walk away.

Luau Punch

Combine sweet mango and guava nectars, pineapple juice, cherries, and orange juice for a kid-friendly punch that's almost as good as a trip to Hawaii.

Jamaican Beef Patties

Frozen pastry pockets pale in comparison to Rev's curry-and-garlic-spiced beef patties.

Oven-Roasted Turkey with Quick Pan Gravy

Rev Run and Justine Simmons had a cook-off for Thanksgiving that ended in a tie vote, but Justine's oven-roasted turkey is the easiest recipe for a beginner. The bird is simply seasoned with smoked paprika, thyme, salt and pepper.

Individual Thanksgiving Stuffing Muffins

Instead of everyone fighting over the crispy corners of stuffing at Thanksgiving, give 'em to everyone. This hybrid of classic stuffing and cornbread stuffing is individually portioned out in muffin tins and is ready to be smothered in gravy.

Homemade Ravioli with Two Fillings

Take a deep breath and dive into making homemade pasta. This ravioli dough can be used with two different fillings: spicy sausage or creamy sage-ricotta.

Caprese Salad

Heirloom tomatoes are preferred for Justine's classic Caprese salad, but if they're out of season, just swap in juicy Romas.

Top Hat Potato Tots with Ranch Dressing

Double this crunchy homemade potato tot recipe and freeze a batch so you'll never have to go back to the lame store-bought ones again.

Upscale Sliders

Pair those tots with Justine's gourmet mini burgers, topped with pancetta chips, melted Gruyère cheese and cornichons.

Teriyaki Chicken

In less time than it takes for delivery to arrive, you can whip up a heaping platter of ginger-spiced chicken.

Mix-and-Match Sushi Rolls

While you're on a roll with Japanese food, make your own crab, salmon and tuna sushi at home. Don't forget some extra spicy mayonnaise on the side!

Lime and Cotija Mexican Grilled Corn

Next taco night, serve up fresh corn topped with crumbly, salty Cotija cheese and plenty of zesty lime juice.

Pigs in Blankets with Honey-Mustard Dipping Sauce

Elevate pigs in blankets with chicken-apple sausage and puff pastry instead of canned crescent dough and cocktail wieners. The honey-mustard dipping sauce can be made as spicy or sweet as you'd like.

Justine's Cheesy Buttermilk Garlic Mash

Mashed potatoes will do a disappearing act at the dinner table once you add lots of cheese and garlic.
