Cooling Off with Watermelon
When summer weather heats up, some may prefer to chill with a tall glass of iced tea, or maybe with two scoops of vanilla ice cream in a waffle cone. But we’re not sure anything tops icy-cold and juicy watermelon on a sultry June day. It’s wonderful just as is, right out of the fridge. But you can also get creative with the red ripe fruit and we’ve got the recipes to prove it. Do you know the secret to picking out a really good watermelon at the supermarket? We do. You’ll find our tips here.
Tiny Arkansas Pizzeria Gains Global Fame
Retirement didn’t “stick” with Rick and Jane Mines after they moved to the sleepy small town of Gassville, Arkansas, a few years back. Instead, they bought themselves a little pizzeria and started baking pepperoni pies—pretty darn good ones. Next thing you know, the Mines are competing in the International Pizza Challenge in Las Vegas, and walking away with the title of “USA Best Traditional Pizza.” How’d they do it? With fresh ingredients and a lot of heart and soul. They’re such nice people, too. You really have to read their story, and check out our Editor’s commentary, as well.

Food Channel contributor, culinary instructor and TV host Camille Parker (“Camille’s Dish”) was on the scene in the Windy City for one of the season’s hottest street festivals, Ribfest. Check out this video for a little taste of the festivities.
