With the 4th of July just a few days away, it's a good time to talk cold drinks and the place where they live. Whether you're loading several coolers for a big party this weekend, or packing for a trip to the beach, there's one essential tool that should always be attached to your cooler.
Have we convinced you to clear off your countertops? If you read our post last week, you know that keeping countertops reserved exclusively for prep is a secret to living large in a small kitchen.
But it does require some smart planning, starting with where to put everything you've moved off the countertop, and expanding your prep space even further. Here are 10 ideas for discovering space you didn't know you had.
I've spent the last several years of my life living in and loving the city of Chicago, where interior spaces are small and people can't wait for the warmer months (40 below, no thank you). As soon as summer hits, folks flood the parks, beaches, and rooftops to host picnic after picnic.
But when you're away from home, you're almost guaranteed to need these three things, so don't leave without them!
The coconut rice and curried corn in this recipe could very well be eaten separately, and they would make fine additions to lunch or dinner, but the combination of the two is truly special. I call for my homemade Jamaican curry powder, giving the corn a complex spicy, sweet, and slightly sour flavor profile.
Even if you don’t plan to make a whole 4th of July feast on your own, this is one of those dishes that always impresses when you show up at someone else’s cookout.
When shopping for a new home, Laura and Jason had a hard time finding one they loved, so instead they looked for a home that had good bones and the potential for a full renovation. When they found the home they ended up purchasing, they knew the kitchen would be the first thing they wanted to update.
Their kitchen before the remodel was hopelessly stuck in the eighties with outdated light fixtures, warm brown cabinets, mauve countertops, and a particularly dated linoleum floor. But that all changed after the remodel.
It’s no secret that watermelon is the "it" ingredient this summer. It’s on craft cocktail menus, it’s served with mint and ricotta in super Instagram-able salads at mega hip restaurants everywhere, and it’s still the best barbecue go-to in all the land.
I love watermelon everything, but I haven’t figured out the perfect way to create a cocktail that doesn’t overpower the light, sweet taste. That’s why I was beyond excited to put together the Everclear® Watermelon Negroni, which let’s you fully enjoy the watermelon, without letting its flavor disappear into alcohol oblivion. It’s basically like eating a ripe watermelon, only there’s alcohol involved, and what could be better? That was a rhetorical question, because literally nothing can compare to this Watermelon Negroni.
Ben & Jerry's — never a company to shy away from political and social issues — announced last week that in celebration of the Supreme Court's ruling in favor of marriage equality, they will be renaming their beloved cookie dough flavor.
