Each half-hour episode of Everyday Food offers quick, easy and practical solutions to the challenges of everyday cooking and includes easy-to-make recipes along with smart tips and kitchen techniques. The Everyday Food television show cast consists of four home-grown talents from the kitchens of Martha Stewart Living: Sarah Carey, John Barricelli, Anna Last, and Lucinda Scala Quinn.

July 30: New Ground
Ground meat can be so much more than just hamburger. It's an inexpensive ingredient, easy to work with, and it can be transformed into many great dishes. We've come up with new ways to use ground meat for maximum flavor with minimum fuss. John makes a delicious and hearty Pork Bolognese. On the side, crisp Green Beans with Hazelnuts. Lucinda uses ground beef to create spicy Thai Beef with Chiles and Basil over Coconut Rice. And Sarah combines ground turkey, cremini mushrooms, fontina cheese and leeks for an extraordinary Turkey Meatloaf with Fontina and Mushrooms. Making exciting new dishes with ingredients you already know and love — that's Everyday Food!

August 6: Chicken Four Ways
Chicken is the most popular meat in the country. Here at Everyday Food we've created four amazing chicken dishes that you just have to try. First up, Sarah makes two amazing chicken dishes — Roast Chicken with Lemon and Fennel. Sarah then prepares a Braised Chicken with Dates that will become a perfect meal for cool weather with a sweet and earthy date sauce. Lucinda lightly fries Chicken Cutlets until they're a little bit crispy, then tops them with a simple Herb Butter and White Wine Sauce. Anyone who's watching their diet knows that chicken breasts are healthy. So John assembles a Chicken with Watercress Salad with lemony chicken breasts and peppery watercress and radishes. It's good for you, but best of all it tastes great. We'll give you four more reason to love chicken, today on Everyday Food.

August 13: Casual Dinner Party
Today, it's casual dinner-party dishes that will impress your guests any time of year. For the main course, Lucinda prepares a succulent and moist Brandy Ham glazed with brown sugar, mustard and of course, brandy. Wow your family and friends with this side dish: Crisp Potato Roast. You won't believe how easy it is to make. In today's "Have You Tried?": Chorizo, Anna will show how this dry Spanish sausage adds zing to a whole range of dishes, from breakfast to dinner. And it doesn't even need to be cooked! She will prepare a simple and delicious Pan-Fried Chorizo with Sherry Vinegar that makes the perfect appetizer. Sarah's Seafood and Chicken Paella has something for everyone: shrimp, mussels, chicken and spicy chorizo, all tucked into a bed of saffron rice. And a great dinner deserves a great dessert. Send your guests home with smiles on their faces by making John's Warm Chocolate Pudding Cakes with Caramel Sauce. These dishes look fancy, but anyone can make them — they're Everyday Food!

August 20: Flavor Packed
Flavor is the key to making any dish great. And good cooks know there are some tips and tricks for boosting the flavor in food — without overwhelming the dish. Today on Everyday Food, we show you the cook's secrets. Sarah prepares our first flavor-packed dish: Grilled Pork Chops with Spicy Paste. We like to serve it with a colorful and refreshing salad of Shaved Beets with Orange. John makes a Soy-Marinated Flank Steak that is tender and moist. We serve it with a gorgeous Tomato Salad with Olives and Lemon Zest. Lucinda makes a Brined Slow-Cooked Turkey Breast that is an easy and foolproof way to juicy and succulent meat. It goes wonderfully with our Corn and Zucchini Sauté with Basil. This show is flavor-packed, and that's what Everyday Food is all about!

August 27: Spring Menu
Certain dishes were made for springtime. On today's episode of Everyday Food, we're going to show you how to make three meals that celebrate the flavors of springtime. First, Lucinda wows us with Roasted Salmon with Herbed Yogurt. Served with a side of Lemony Smashed Potatoes. Then John prepares Garlic-Roasted Leg of Lamb. He serves it with a side of Israeli Couscous with Parsley and Shallots. In today's "Have You Tried?": Watercress, Anna will show you how to shop and store this delicious peppery green. And it's especially perfect for simple salads like our Watercress Salad with Manchego and Orange. And finally, Sarah uses a spring classic — asparagus — in a beautiful Asparagus, Leek and Gruyère Quiche. Seasonal dishes that leave you plenty of time to enjoy the season — that's Everyday Food!
