Everyone wants to cook better meals, but it's hard during the week with work and school and errands. But The Food Network has two great new shows on the weekend that will help you cook better during the week.

Let's get cooking

Getting real

First up is Cooking for Real with Sunny Anderson.

With an understanding of everyday life and that real people deserve down-to-earth delicious meals; Cooking for Real offers real food, for real life. Serving up solutions for easy to prepare, fantastic tasting menus, Sunny Anderson elevates the everyday meal by taking affordable, easy to find, easy to use ingredients and infusing them with diverse influences and a taste for rich, rewarding flavor. Don't let the rush of the real world deny you the real food, the real techniques and the can't miss tastes, of Cooking for Real.
