When a Food Network host and country music superstar wants to stop by to learn how to play hockey, the answer is an easy one. Throw in some glazed limoncello cookies to sweeten the deal, and it's a no-brainer.

Platinum-selling country artist Trisha Yearwood paid a visit to Bridgestone Arena earlier this season to film an episode of her Food Network show, Trisha's Southern Kitchen. With the help of Nashville Predators forwards Ryan Johansen, Filip Forsberg and Colin Wilson, Yearwood - along with her friend, Glenda - suited up and went for a skate while receiving pointers from the trio of Preds.

Johansen - who admittedly had more than a few of Yearwood's cookies - and his teammates shared plenty of laughs with the recording artist and kitchen extraordinaire, and now the footage is ready for the world to see.

The episode of Trisha's Southern Kitchen featuring the Predators will air Saturday, Jan. 14 at 10:30 a.m. ET, 9:30 CT on Food Network.

And be sure to make the cookies. They were quite good.
