Nothing against archery, canoeing, or lanyard crafts, but agrarian experiences are where it's at right now. And these summer camps afford children ages 4 to 16 the opportunity to milk Holsteins and harvest carrots.
I was surprised to find the gate unlatched when I got home. And it's strangely quiet, I thought, as I walked into the pasture. Normally, my three goats came running when I arrived home each day, bleating, and baaaahhh-ing for their dinner.
Nothing says, "Bring on summer!" like a beautiful, fruity pitcher of sangria! This strawberry and meyer lemon sangria is perfect for your next weekend get-together or mid-week cookout. If you've got wine and fruit in the house, you can make a sangria. I promise you that sangria is basically fool-proof.
For many of us, ordering wine in a restaurant is like shooting darts with our eyes closed. We set the bar quite low for ourselves when it comes to defining success, and often we're content just to hit the board. We may aim for a delicious wine (and strive not to embarrass ourselves in the process), but how can we expect to consistently nail our target when we're shooting blind?
The delicious flavors of a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich in this huge, main course salad. To make it heartier, I've included lean turkey in addition to the bacon, tomatoes and lettuce. It's topped with my skinny ranch dressing and toasted, homemade bread crumbs. Pure yumminess!
For beer lovers, there's nothing better than an ice cold brew. If you're like us, you know that there are lots of unfamiliar beer "buzz" words floating around that could help deepen your appreciation. Here's a top list of beer brewing terms every serious drinker is bound to run into.

This is one of my kids favorites weekend breakfast meals. Super quick and easy to make and very tasty, should take you no more than 20 minutes to prepare.
I recently discovered the joys of a fried egg sitting on a bed of couscous--but not the tiny granules of couscous I was used to.
When 23-year-old Richard Tam opened his Chinatown shop 10Below last year, it quickly drew three-hour lines of eager customers. This was despite no real marketing on the part of Tam and his business partners, who were first-time restaurateurs.
The most terrifying foods concocted by American chains are mere child's play next to what Japan's Lotteria can inflict on customers using nothing but lettuce and tartar sauce or a movie tie-in.
Cubans have many different signature dishes, but one of my favorites is the Cuban Frita. In America, the typical hamburger contains beef, but a Frita is a mix of beef and pork (and at times chorizo), and my favorite place to get one of these delicious burgers is none other than El Rey de las Fritas.
Some of my earliest (and happiest) memories of childhood are associated with the huge vegetable garden that sprawled at the back of our property.
During his White House tenure, Kass took on several additional roles around food policy including Executive Director of First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!" campaign.
