    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.

    Upgrade Your Barbecue with New Takes on the Classics

    There’s nothing quite like a classic, all-American barbeque, complete with charred hot dogs, juicy hamburgers, grilled corn on the cob and ice-cold beer, all on a red and white checkered tablecloth with some potato salad on the side. We love these summer meals, but what if we took just a few extra minutes to upgrade the classics for even tastier results? Here’s what we’re doing for our next grill-fest.

    Grilling 101: Everything You Need to Know to Feel Confident Behind the Grill this Summer from the Effortless Chic

    I really love to cook.  I enjoy the rhythm of chopping, dicing, and sautéing; waiting while faint scents become tantalizing aromas that engulf a space, and the pleasure of knowing that friends and family have been nourished by food.  It’s like therapy.  (Is cooking therapy a thing? It should be!)  I can poach and chiffonade like a pro and have single handedly cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner, but for whatever reason, have always been intimidated by a grill.  Is it the open flames? The propane tank? I have no idea, but it was on my bucket list to face my fears and master summer’s favorite cooking medium.  I had my friend and grilling extraordinaire, Lauren Daniel come over and stocked up on all of the OXO tools I would need in my arsenal.  Keep reading for the full step by step below, but, spoiler alert: it’s so easy! (We partnered with OXO on this post. Chances are you already own something that they make somewhere in your home!  They have everything you need for whatever you’re going to be cooking up this summer and beyond!  Their products make everyday living easier.)

    How to Make Grilled Pizza for the First Time

    Have you ever tried grilled pizza? Last summer, we saw this trend everywhere from backyard barbecues to friends in our Instagram feed.

    Flavor Injector: Meet Your Grill’s New Best Friend

    Marinade injectors have long been a secret weapon in the high-stakes world of professional barbecuing. This method is pretty self-explanatory: instead of flavoring the surface of the meat, like with marinades and rubs, you inject flavor via a large, food-safe needle designed to penetrate muscle fibers, delivering flavor and tenderizing meat in a matter of minutes.

    Grilled Fruit Ideas for Your Next Cookout

    When someone says “Labor Day,” do you think immediately of hot dogs? Does hearing the phrase “fire up the grill” prompt you to conjure mental images of rib-eyes and skirt steaks? While there’s a time and a place for a barbecue that would delight committed carnivores, this Labor Day weekend, why not try something a little different? Although grilled fruit won’t replace burgers and hotdogs 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.
