1. Instant Orange Cake

"I made this dessert when friends came by for drinks and didn't leave," recalls culinary legend Jacques Pépin. "I found a pound cake in the freezer and a couple of oranges and some leftover mascarpone in the refrigerator, although crème fraîche or sour cream would also work." He'll show off the dish this weekend in his demo, Heart & Soul in the Kitchen, with daughter Claudine.

2. Rosé Sangria with Mixed Berry Ice Ring

Justin Chapple's Mad Genius Tips demo starring Today's Tamron Hall will include this perfect party trick.

3. Camembert in Pistachio Crust
