In ET’s exclusive clip from Saturday’s premiere, Ayesha whips up a stellar meal of cauliflower hot “wings,” white chocolate bread pudding and sloppy joe stuffed peppers for Steph, his younger brother Seth and their pals. And while Steph scarfs down the delectable eats, he can’t seem to let go of the bun-less sloppy joes.
“The buns are always on my mind, but I’ll let it slide for the next five minutes,” the 28-year-old two-time MVP adorably concedes, who clearly prefers his sloppy joes sandwiched between some bread.
“I had no choice. Everything on my plate is good and gone, but I did hold a little something special…,” the Golden State Warriors star says, before surprising her with his secret stash of bacon maple popcorn that had "mysteriously" run out. “It was so good, I kept some for myself.” (Fun fact: Steph is a self-proclaimed popcorn addict.)
“Did you eat all the popcorn?” she asks accusingly, Steph's North Carolina drawl starting to take over when he comes back with this playful retort: “Bacon is good for me!”
Ayesha is no stranger to the Food Network family, as she’s previously appeared on Chopped and Guy’s Grocery Games. In September, she released her first cookbook, The Seasoned Life, which features more than 100 of her easy-to-follow recipes.
Earlier this year, Stephen's daughter, Riley, wished her father a "happy birthday" in the most adorable way possible. Watch the video below.
