Mary and Dylan host a pajama party brunch! On the menu is French toast, a frittata bar and a hash bash. This "snacktivity" (make-your-own-food activity) features hash browns and all the fixin's. Then guests build their own bash inside a mason jar. Shake, shake and eat!
Once the food is all set, it's time for the cocktails. First, Mary and Dylan prepare fruit-and-herb-infused waters, a green revival smoothie as well as an impressive Bloody Mary bar. Then, Mary shows you how to make mini flower bouquets for each guest to take home.
Mary loves a retro punch bowl cocktail. And in this lesson, she and Dylan make a raspberry-Prosecco sparkler with floral ice cubes and edible glitter. Mary also shows you how to use a bookshelf as a bar, and build a "white bar" with white wine, vodka, gin and soda.

In the final lesson, it's all about enjoying great food around a table with your friends. From a mozzarella bar "snacktivity" to "meatball fondue" (meatballs served in a fondue pot with tomato sauce) to cauliflower pizzas set out as table runners for all the enjoy, this is a party your friends will be talking about. For drinks, Mary puts her fixings for a Sicilian martini on a lazy Susan at the table and gives everyone cocktail shakers to build their own. For dessert, Mary makes playful cereal-crusted cannoli and packages them up for her guests to take home.

To kick things off, Gail and and Dylan put a fresh spin on two traditional favorites. First, learn to make roasted and rolled turkey breast with maple, sage and sausage cornbread stuffing. Then Gail shares her mom's most-loved horseradish brisket recipe, with a twist.
Holiday meals aren't complete without the sides! Spice up classic flavors with two of Gail's favorites: sweet potato-squash gratin with shallots and fresh herbs; and broccolini with crispy chile-lemon crumbs.
We hope you've saved some room for dessert, because in this lesson Gail and Dylan tackle their go-to fall faves: spiced apple tarte tatin and a pumpkin cheesecake with candied hazelnuts that will have the whole table coming back for seconds.
The holidays haven't officially started until you've eaten your first holiday cookie, at least in the Simmons household! Here, Gail shows you how to brighten up your cookie trays with two classics that bring an innovative twist of flavors: chocolate-tahini thumbprint cookies and rosemary-lemon pecan bars.
We all know that homemade gifts make the best gifts. Gail helps you spoil your loved ones with two simple yet impressive-looking treats: chocolate honeycomb crunch with pretzels, nuts and peppermint candy; and pancetta-bacon jam, a terrific condiment on savory toast and sandwiches.
