CWK SE03EP01-5For the season opener, Chef Kevin calls on his Aunt Susie to help him kick-off the show with pizzazz.  Together, they make mouth-watering turkey burgers, mixing the meat with fresh basil and feta cheese before grilling it outside on the patio.  Kevin compliments the meal with his tasty macaroni salad.  CWK SE03EP01-4The meal was, in fact, so good that even In the Know’s Tim couldn’t help sneaking on set and taking a bite (or two!) before being caught red-handed!

Meanwhile, Get Smart’s Brenna discusses the popularity of Turkey, Helpful Tips’ Julie gives us a lesson on how to perfectly cook noodles and In The Know’s Tim shares his favorite type of salads for any BBQ.

For the season 2 finale, Chef Kevin closes the series with a simple but delicious breakfast combo: Whole Wheat Banana Nut Muffins and a Berry Protein Blast Smoothie.  ep7_3YUM!  The Cooking With Kevin staff can attest that these muffins are addicting – but we don’t have to feel guilty about eating so many because Kevin made sure they were super healthy!  And the smoothie – who knew eating fruits could be so yummy.  Blending together an assortment of berries with maple water (yes, you read that right!), bananas, pineapple, and spinach, Chef Kevin uses his Bullet blender to whip up some wholesome goodness.
