When life gives you lemons, make alcoholic lemonade, that’s what I say (no wonder I didn’t have one of those roadside lemonade stands as a kid). Anyway, today is National Lemonade Day, which means it’s the perfect time to kick your drink game up a notch. Forget about just adding a simple splash of vodka to your lemonade, and, instead, try one of these 11 delicious and refreshing ways to spike it!
Summer produce is just the best. Peaches, watermelon, plums, cherries, eggplant, green beans, tomatoes and, my personal favorite, CORN. During the summer months, I find myself serving corn-on-the-cob as a side with at least half of my home cooked meals, boiling it for only a few minutes so the kernels keep some of their crunch, slathering the steaming hot ear with salty melted butter. But with corn selling for, like, 50 cents an ear, I want to eat much more of it before the season is up and I’d like to get a little more creative. Here are 10 recipes I’m totally corny for. (Sorry, that was a stupid joke.)
Ahh, rum. There’s something about the smooth taste of cold rum that makes you want to sit by the ocean, strum a guitar and let the warm breeze blow. To celebrate National Rum Day on August 16 (today!), you’ll find me at the closest beach bar with a cool concoction in hand and Kenny Chesney playing on my iPod (who, coincidentally loves rum so much he’s even bottled up his own: Blue Chair Bay Rum.) Join the party and create some tasty rum cocktails to get in on the festivities. Click through for 12 yummy recipes to get you started…
Chips are the ultimate snack, so why limit your selection to just potatoes? Here are 11 recipe suggestions to get you started.
Cream pie is one of those things I don’t enjoy often enough. Light, creamy and fluffy, I can eat an entire one by myself. Try whipping up one of these cream pies and grab a fork for an indulgent night.
I am planning my first trip to Tuscany and with every click I find myself drooling over prosciutto. Can one eat prosciutto at every meal for seven days? I will report back in October. Until then, here are some yummy ways to work this delicate salty meat into every meal.
