July/August Issue Hits the Stands!
Posted by Carla Lalli Music
Many of you have already received your July/August issue, but it "officially" hits the stands today. Our double issue is all about summer, and we've got your warm-weather recipes covered. We thought you might like to see some of the "before" pictures of the dishes that made it into the magazine. These were taken by our food editors during the development phase, while they were still working out the kinks and deciding how we wanted things to look in the magazine. It's kind of like a dress rehearsal—for food. Check out the gallery, and please let us know what you'll be making!
1 The first pass of the nectarine-yogurt smoothie was made with peaches. The version in the magazine calls for nectarines, but peaches will work too.
2 Everyone was smitten with the lightened-up potato salad.
3 Our lighter fried chicken is not fried at all, but it's still crunchy and delicious.
4 Turkey swiss burger looks good enough to . . . you know.
5 Who doesn't love a root beer float? Vanilla fro-yo cut almost two-thirds the fat!
6 Plums were originally the third fruit in our dessert issue. In the final version, these clafouti were made with peaches.
7 A summer succotash from grocery bag looks almost exactly like the printed version.
8 Our easy fudge had a few different mix-in ideas. Marshmallow and walnut . . .
9 dried cherries and nuts . . .
10 candied ginger and white chocolate chunks. Yum!
