    Back Pocket Recipe: Charred Vegetable Salad for Summer from Chef Daniel DiStefano

    We all have recipes that we keep coming back to. They’re the ones we lean on for dinner parties or potlucks. The ones we make when we aren’t feeling ambitious, but still want impressive results. We make them over and over again and always get rave reviews. At OXO, we like to call them our Back Pocket Recipes.

    Three-Ingredient Summer Sides

    The best thing about summer (aside from swimming, lightning bugs, barbecuing and popsicles) is cooking with seasonal, farm-fresh produce. With fruits and veggies at their peak, you don’t have to be a master-level chef to pull together stunning side dishes using just three ingredients. The following recipes are designed to be easy-peasy for you, so the ingredients shine through. Bonus? Most of them are delicious at room temperature. Note: we didn’t count staples like olive oil, salt or pepper towards our three-ingredient limit.

    Easy, No-Bake Desserts You Should Make This Summer

    Come summer, nobody really wants to turn on their oven. (OK, maybe for pie. Pie gets a pass.) Hot ovens and hotter kitchens make for sticky and unhappy cooks and sweltering guests. And anyway, why overheat your whole party for the sake of a cake when you know everyone would be just as happy as eating ice cream pie?

    How to Make Mayonnaise Without a Blender

    Mayonnaise is one of the those condiments that tastes a lot better when made at home. It actually tastes fresh, with the hints of lemon and garlic shining through, and in the summer, it’s great for potato salads or topping off any grilled vegetables, chicken or steaks. With only six ingredients and some forearm strength, it can come together pretty quickly too.

    5 Fruits To Throw on the Grill This Summer

    When someone says “summer” do you think immediately of hot dogs? Does hearing the phrase “fire up the grill” prompt you to conjure images of ribeye and skirt steak? While there’s a time and a place for a barbecue that would delight committed carnivores, this summer, why not try something a little different? Although grilled fruit won’t replace burgers and hot dogs as a main course, it’s a very worthy side. We put together this guide for grilling the last of your summer produce to enhance its flavor (and help you make the most of grilling season).

    Behind the Design: Space Saving Drying Rack

    OXO Tot was born out of necessity. In five years, 25 babies were born to OXO’s then 50 employees. Our engineers and product managers took the same curiosity-driven, problem-solving approach to parenthood (and the slew of gear that comes with it) as they did with creating household tools. Bib not catching crumbs, drips, and dribbles? Enter the Roll-Up Bib. What about a wipes dispenser that dispenses one wipe at a time instead of a handful at once? Try the PerfectPull Wipes Dispenser.
