Vegged Out (#215H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Flavorful, rich, satisfying vegetarian food? It seems impossible, but when you try these heart veggie entrees, you won't even miss the meat. Sara's Rustic Potato and Green Bean Pie couldn't be more filling - and versatile too. There's nothing bland about Spicy Mushroom Enchiladas, cooled off with a blanket of sour cream and avocado. We're devoted to Mu Shoo Vegetables in Pancakes with crunchy cashews and creamy eggs. Sure, vegetarian food is good for you, but who knew it could taste so good too?

Sunday Comfort Meals (#213H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Why rush? Sunday meals are all about comfort, familiar dishes made with love and eaten with family and friends. On top of the list is Roast Chicken Stuffed with Zucchini and Cheese to keep it moist and flavorful. Deviled Bones sounds gothic, but it's meaty, tender short ribs coated with a kick of mustard for heat. Odd Lots Mac and Cheese is a winner with the whole family, and the best part - any leftover cheese will do! And Sara's Creamsicle Dessert will bring back comforting memories of the ice cream truck in summer.

We get it: most of America runs on beef, pork and chicken. So today, Sara's got meat and lots of it. Sara marries the juicy burger marries with Korean barbecue for her special Korean Burgers. She'll even show you how to grind your own meat, no special tools needed. Hey "porkitarians," Buttermilk-Fried Pork Chops have two great things going for them - they're super juicy on the inside, extra crispy on the outside. And you'll love Sara's Polenta Lasagna - with crispy polenta cakes in place of traditional noodles, it's even easier and much quicker to make.
