Turkey is prepared two ways when Damaris and her family get together for Thanksgiving. Included: chicken-fried turkey breast with cranberry-mustard dipping sauce; and smoked whole turkey. Also: a decadent side dish of twice-baked sweet potatoes with sea-salt-marshmallow caramels.
Damaris joins her friend who's passionate about historical reenactments in an Old World archery contest. Inspired by the experience, she later prepares a salad of marinated beet and Stilton; a quiche made with sausage and savory herbs; and butter-pecan crumpets.
Damaris and a friend visit the Kentucky State Fair on a mission to eat crazy and decadent foods. Later, the ladies create bite-size appetizers inspired by their trip. Included: corn-dog muffins; pimento cheese jalapeño poppers; and Meyer lemon shake-up tarts.
Damaris helps her sister prepare for Halloween by carving pumpkins, decorating the house and making sweet treats. On the menu: red velvet lava cake; cornmeal-and-white-chocolate biscotti; roasted chicken white chili.
Damaris and some friends go on a farm adventure during which they make pickled peaches. But first, she prepares a picnic lunch featuring zucchini-noodle salad and blackened chicken sandwiches with almond butter and red pepper jam.
In the Season 5 premiere, Damaris plans a glamping staycation as a surprise for her hard-working husband. She serves Southern Sloppy Joes and crunchy butternut squash slaw, plus s'more bites for dessert.
