4. Cooking 101: A Husband-Friendly Meal

It's back to basics for this culinary-challenged husband, who enlists The Chew Crew to teach him a simple, yet delicious dish that his wife will love. Carla and Daphne come to the rescue with this no-fuss dish: Herb Chicken with Smashed Potatoes and Grilled Asparagus.
 

















3. Refreshing Summer Cocktails
 
Looking for a new go-to cocktail? Sip on this light, fruity sangria all summer long. 

1 bottle Dry White Wine (Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc)
1/4 cup Peach Schnapps
2 Peaches (sliced)
2 Granny Smith Apples (sliced)
1 cup Green and Red Grapes (sliced)
splash of Orange Juice
splash of Diet Lemon/Lime or Flavored Club Soda
 
Mix wine and peach schnapps and allow to marinate for 4 to 6 hours. Add the fruit and top with the remaining ingredients. Serve in festive glasses and top with ice.  

2. Harry Connick, Jr. Heats Up The Kitchen

Harry Connick, Jr. stops by for a lesson on essential cooking techniques from Mario. After learning to prepare a tender Hanger Steak with Hen of the Woods Mushrooms, Harry sticks around to judge Clinton's "Who Wants To Be A Mealionaire?"
