In honor of my three favorite Food Network chefs (who doesn’t love Rachael Ray, Mario Batali, and Wolfgang Puck?), I’m sharing a mouthwatering recipe from each that I can actually pull off – which means pretty much anyone can. Bon appétit!

I’m a huge fan of Rachael Ray’s 30 Minute Meals and just about every kind of wine, so this Drunken Spaghetti recipe is right up my alley.

Spicy grilled pineapple salsa? Just pass the whole bag of tortillas. It’s dishes like this that actually get me excited for Monday Night Football.

Everyone should have a good eggplant parm recipe up their sleeve, and this one by Mario Batali is how I wow the parents when they come to visit.

Nothing’s better on a crisp fall morning than curling up in your comforter and having breakfast in bed. Whether it’s waffles doused in maple syrup or pancakes with a chocolate chip smile, it’s this kind of home cooking that always starts the day off right. Check out these sweet recipes, then treat someone you love (or, yourself) to a tasty, home-cooked wake-up call.

Give kids a spooky breakfast with mummy sausages that just scream Halloween.

Not a morning person? These sticky buns are sure to rouse even the latest sleepers. Trust me, with this much gooey goodness they’ll have to get up.

These crispy, warm popovers (topped with a little jam, of course) are sure to please every overnight guest.

And lastly – well, this isn’t actually a recipe, but who can resist crazy pancake faces?

Sure, we’d love first-row seats at New York Fashion Week, but let’s be honest, it’s not always in the cards. The next best thing in my book? Cookies. And not just any cookies, I’m talking NYFW-worthy morsels.

Simply take your favorite peanut butter cookie recipe, follow the steps here, and add chocolate. Good taste with conversation-starting design? It’s a guaranteed win-win at every party.

Hyatt Lake Tahoe

The Hyatt Lake Tahoe Resort, Casino and Spa is literally chock-full of wintertime activities – from snowy sports on nearby trails to relaxing treatments at the mountain-inspired spa. But there’s one activity in particular that caught our eye: s’more roasting at the fire pits. There’s just something so classic about gathering friends and family for a night of s’mores, stories, and gorgeous lakeside scenery. And the perfect (albeit grown-up) complement to s’mores – hot buttered rum. Here’s an easy recipe for a wintery concoction to top off the toasty treats:

1 teaspoon of brown sugar

1 teaspoon of stick butter

2 ounces of white rum

4 ounces of boiling hot water (enough to fill the rest of the mug)
