Ah, limonata in the summer - lightened with bubbly soda water & enahanced with mint, this sounds like just the drink for heavy duty relaxing on a hot afternoon.
"A boozy take on the Italian soda with mint and limoncello."
Found in Chow.com by Aïda Mollenkamp. She recommends Caravella Limonata.
Ever wonder what to do with all that lovely hot pepper jelly? Aside from topping bricks of cream cheese, using a s pork & chicken glazes or glazing tropical fruit tarts? This is excellent as a dip for chicken nuggets or chicken strips. From www.chilipeppermadness.com .
Got this in email from gourmet-recipes-from-around-the-world. Think this one will be used over the Memorial day weekend relaxing al fresco after getting the last of the tomatoes planted. Thank you letscook!
A lovely refreshing surprisingly easy cooler to dash together & enjoy with friends. The non-alcoholic ginger beer has a nice bite to cut the sweet of the fruit juices & allows their floral essences to be noticed. From those talented folks at www.chow.com - had to post here so as not to lose.
Have a birthday Boston Butt I'm BBQing this week. Found this in Atlanta's Evening Edge (when reading about their torrential rains). The original recipe called for rubbing on just before grilling but I am applying the rub the night before & refrigerating over night. Will bring to room temp before slowly cooking @ 200 degree F applewood smoke. Plan on serving with Recipe#388179, Recipe#39786, Recipe#382687 & braised kale.
Easy & refreshing dressing for vegie or cold noodle salad when the temperature is just too high to even think of cooking. This will perk you up! For the chili heads out there - adding 2 or 3 thinly sliced bird peppers makes this a great dressing for a cold beef or pork salad!. From A Taste of Thai
Worked this one out in a hurry - have since used with both white & regular balsamic vinegar. White is sweeter & both taste great! I use Zatarain's mustard when I have it - have used brown & also bumpy mustard with great results!

Malt vinegar has a special flavor that goes well with fried foods. In this sauce, you get the unique flavor of malt together with the Thai influence of chilies, Fish Sauce and cilantro.
Got this in an email from www.chow.com - made it up because it turned COLD here! Used honey instead of the recommended honey liqueur (have to go out of state to snag some of that). It's delicious, bone warming & soothing! Wonderful for a cold evening snugged in with someone you love... or a good book... or a great movie... or reruns of The Wire...
A nice version of guacamole provided by Chef Nino, of Rouse's Own Chef for the French Market Creole Tomato Festival coming this weekend. Use the freshest, reddest (or blackest or pinkest or orangist) robust homegrown tomatoes you got - it'll be great! There'll be no leftovers. Can't wait for my tomatoes to start coming in - will be experimenting with different types. By all means - use those lovely red flavorful Creoles if you can! Here's hoping my Rowdy Reds come in soon!
