Enjoy Your Summer

Let us help you Enjoy Your Summer with our collection of new products and recipes. Summer is the perfect time to simplify your life, lean back and enjoy the season. Picnics are popular this time of the year and we have a complete section of picnic articles, including A Mediterranean Picnic in the Middle of an Urban Park, Picnicking via Horseback, Celebrating with a Beach Picnic, and A Tailgate Picnic.

And salads are perfect summer fare. See our recipes to the left and you'll find some new ideas. The Greek Salad, Radicchio with Blue Cheese and Peppered Almonds and the Texas Caesar Salad are my favorites.

The Fourth of July is a popular July holiday.  Our salad recipes would work perfectly for this patriotic day.

I've been busy food blogging so read my "What Is A Mangosteen? and "Sally's Top 10 Favorite Dishes" posts at


All the best in food, wine, and travel.

Happy July,


Sally Bernstein


Sally's Recommendations

Torani Sweet Heat Syrup

Sweet Heat is made with Ghost Peppers and allows bartenders, baristas and home cooks to add heat to a drink but not flavor.  You get a really interesting warming sensation in the back of your throat and it makes for a very fun drinking experience.  Try Sweet Heat in a mango smoothie, with Bloody Mary Mix or even in  brownies. It can be used in hot or cold beverages, like lemonade, mochas, coffee, cocktails, teas and smoothies. Click here to order.

Victoria Amory: The Ketchup Collection

Inspired by the flavors of the bubbly Cote d'Azure, the elegant Jerez wine region, and the ancient and rugged La Mancha region, these full-bodied ketchups bring the flavors that fill Victoria Amory's kitchen home to you.  Victoria is an award-winning author, cook, and television personality. She writes about food, entertaining, and lifestyle for local and national magazines.  Suggested retail price is $5.99. Click here  to order.

Cascade Ice recently launched two new zero-calorie sparkling water flavors - Coconut Pineapple and Coconut Mango! These sparkling waters are a tasty and unique choice for warm weather enjoyment!
