We begin with Kelsey in Essex Market where she shares tips on how to navigate a grocery store with a toddler in tow and only twenty minutes to spare. In the kitchen, Kelsey begins with a savory Chorizo Frittata to be paired with a bright Charred Citrus Salad.

Is that romance or garlic bread I smell? It's both! Because it's an Italian themed date night in Kelsey and Robby's House. These young parents only get one night a month to themselves, so they can't screw it up. Kelsey decides to make things extra special by heading down to Bread's Bakery for some fresh baked carbs. While she's there, Bread's resident chef Kelly teaches her how to make a fresh boule. Then, in the kitchen, Kelsey teaches us how to turn that boule into a Split Cheesy Garlic bread. The night's romantic Italian theme is brought together with by savory Antipasti Salad and a tasty Spinach and Artichoke Skillet Lasagna. Finally, Date Night ends with Kelsey's chocolaty spin on the Italian classic dessert, Tiramisu.

Kelsey remembers her trip to San Francisco, its Spanish cuisine and the latest twist on a classic Spanish dish -- paella, made with noodles instead of rice. The new tread inspires Kelsey's version of Fideos with shrimp and chorizo with a smoky paprika aioli. And you can't talk about San Francisco without making a classic buttery and fluffy Pilaf. She finishes her San Fran feast with a Green Goddess Crab Tapas. It's Spanish flair west coast style!

Kelsey discovers the latest trend in Japanese cuisine with a visit to Yuji Haraguchi, and his unique approach to ramen. Yuji bucks all trends and uses "mazemaen" a dry ramen, and no broth.

Kelsey also visits Mimi and Coco who have reinvented a Japanese savory favorite by making Americanized teriyaki balls.

Your freezer is your friend, let Kelsey Nixon show you the way! Most people don't know how to use their freezer and worry that freezing food means less nutrition, but that is not the case. Kelsey heads to Babeth's Feast in New York City to shop and learn about the versatility of frozen foods. Then, she takes her frozen finds back to the kitchen where she whips up a freezer-friendly feast of Sweet Potato and Black Bean Empanadas and Moroccan Meatballs with Spicy Tomato Sauce. Finally, the meal is topped off by a dessert of Oat Crumb Topping paired with frozen berries.
Entertaining friends and family during the holidays doesn't always mean baking a whole turkey, ham, or cake: bite size savory and sweet treats are quick ways to get the taste of the holidays to your guests in no time. Kelsey gets all of her favorite flavors of a turkey meal into one bite with Potato Latkes topped with Smoked Turkey Leg and Sweet Kumquat Chutney. Her favorite stuffing recipe packs big flavor into little Crispy Prosciutto cups.
