Welcome to round two of Spouse vs. Spouse, a series in which a couple of married food freaks, CNN’s Brandon and Kristy Griggs, square off in their Atlanta kitchen for culinary bragging rights - and invite you to weigh in too.

In each installment, Kristy and Brandon will each cook a creative variation on the same ingredient or dish - everything from pasta to seafood to cocktails to desserts. We’ll serve both versions anonymously to our friends, who will then judge which one they like better and why. We’ll walk you through our kitchen process, bring the husband-and-wife smack talk and, of course, keep score. We’ll also share our recipes here so that you can try them for yourself.

Our theme: Summer salads

An unlikely pairing took to the stage Saturday in front of a sold out audience at World Café Live to promote peace and ice cream.

Philadelphia-based Christian author and activist Shane Claiborne partnered with Ben Cohen, co-founder of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, to raise public awareness about federal military spending.

The evening started off on a somber note with Cohen pouring 10,000 BB gun pellets into a metal container to illustrate the power of the United States’ nuclear arsenal in front of a stunned audience.

Breakfast buffet: National chocolate milkshake day

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

This milkshake will bring y'all to the yard - September 12 is National Chocolate Milkshake Day!

It's the ultimate cure for the bad-day blues, an end of the day pick-me-up and it even tastes great on a good day, too!

Combining ice cream, chocolate, whipped cream and even a cherry on top (maybe two if you're lucky) is the perfect balance. This tall drink of sinfully sweet chocolate pairs oddly well with a nice, juicy burger and crispy, salty french fries. You'll be in fast food heaven. Even better, try it after midnight (and spike it) and you'll ascend to a new higher of foodie existence.
