Enjoy the Remaining Summer: Shortcuts to the Rescue!

Fantastic in 5 - Contest Winners (p.63)

For its annual Shortcuts issue, Taste of Home challenged its massive network of home cooks to submit their best recipes featuring just five ingredients. The resulting recipe guide offers cost-conscious and speedy dishes that are test-kitchen-certified to be as delicious as they are streamlined. With imaginative recipes like Caramelized Fennel Tarts, Orange-Pecan Salmon and White Chocolate Brie Cups, readers can bypass the grocery cart, fill only a small shopping basket and have a dinner on the table in no time.

Chop, Chop! (p.41)

The Taste of Home Test Kitchen put food processors to the test to determine which of these time-saving appliances came out on top. Check out this guide to see which processors we fell in love with. We also give you insider tips for getting the most out of your appliance and some processor-friendly recipes such as Over-the-Top Cherry Jam and Thin Crust Pizza Dough.

Paradise Is Paved - Tailgating Secrets Revealed (p.20)

It's no secret that tailgaters take their food very seriously. But the secrets revealed in this feature story are tried and tested tailgate tips from some undisputed tailgating professionals across the country like Joe Cahn, the official "Commissioner of Tailgating," who has been on the road for 15 years perfecting his craft. A tailgate menu guide with recipes like Fired-Up Polenta Shrimp Rounds, Steak Teriyaki Quesadillas, Mini Pear Crisps and Baja Chicken & Slaw Sliders will have you second-guessing the typical tailgate fare of hot dogs and chips.

RoadFood: Everything and The Kitchen Sink (p.77)

Taste of Home's "RoadFood" columnists, Jane and Michael Stern, traversed the country in search of delicious "kitchen sink" creations celebrated by America's cooks and restaurants. Taste of Home readers provided their own recipes for hearty, rustic and boldly flavorful one-pot dishes like Southwest Frito Pie and Fresh and Spicy Cioppino.

Across the Table from Jamie Oliver (p.86)

Join third-generation chef and Food Revolution leader Jamie Oliver as he sits "Across the Table" to answer questions about his must-have kitchen gadget (his speed peeler), his favorite meat dish (a pork shoulder roast), his sweet tooth solution (organic dark chocolate), his advice on healthy eating and getting kids started in the kitchen and more.

PLUS: There's always room for more

Sip, Splash, Nosh - Don't miss the fabulous summer drink and snack recommendations (p.29), perfect for making the most of the remaining days by the poolside.

Sunday Dinner - Take a cue from Italian traditions and invite extended family members to Sunday night dinner (p.32). With amazing recipes like Roasted Pepper Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette, Family-Favorite Pasta Sauce, Three-Cheese Garlic Bread and Marvelous Cannoli Cake, you won't have to do much convincing to bring a crowd together.

Homegrown Chefs - Hear the extraordinary stories of young chefs who got started in the kitchen early and haven't looked back (p.46). Kids like Tom Reynolds set aside video games and started cooking and baking, much to the surprise and delight of their parents. Check out Tom's recipe for incredible Spanish Beef Hash.
