Master the Grill:  No summer cookout is complete without hotdogs, hamburgers and veggies simmering on the grill. Whether you’re just learning to flip a patty or looking for exciting ways to spice your usual favorites up, you can find simple summer recipes and how to grilling demonstrations by searching for clips of your favorite TV cooking stars. Try putting some “Bam!” in your next barbeque with the help of Emeril.

Poolside Picks: One thing to keep in mind is that summer is sure to bring you to the pool!  If you are worried about a bikini body, ditch the chips and try some healthy summer side dishes like Greek Summer Rice Salad, Cool as a Cucumber Salad, or even Spicy Cole Slaw. Just remember to wait 30 minutes after these slimming snacks before diving in!

Keep Your Cool: What about those who prefer chilling over grilling? With the summer temperatures climbing, there’s no denying that popsicles and ice cream are the best summer treats to beat the heat.  Learn to make your own delicious popsicles that are sure to please both adults and kids alike, or try a unique spin on ice cream sundaes to cool your head and spoil your sweet-tooth.

Stay Refreshed: Nothing quenches a summer thirst like a fruity drink with an umbrella.  Luckily you don’t have to be a bartender to impress your guests with palette-pleasing mixes and blends, just try these simple summer cocktail and mocktail recipes from blinkx and watch their frosty glasses go empty.
