    • Honey-Glazed Chicken with Peppers & Goat Cheese and Squash & Mushroom Orzo

    • Melon-Fresh Herb Sorbet

      Mix and match melon and herb flavors to suit your taste -- or use what's popping up in the garden or at the farmer's market. Some compatible combinations: cantaloupe-sage, honeydew-lavender, and watermelon-mint-basil.

    • Celery Mary

      To combine the ingredients in this fresh veggie-and-vodka drink, recipe developer and author Steve McDonagh recommends using a muddler, a tool that looks like a miniature baseball bat. "The wide base gives the best extraction. In a pinch, use the end of a large wooden spoon."

    • Grilled Peach Frappe

      Fresh peach is grilled and mixed with a handful of other ingredients to make this refreshing drink. "I love rediscovering historic drinks and giving them a modern spin," says Steve McDonagh, recipe developer and co-owner of Chicago's Hearty Restaurant. For an alcohol-free drink, substitute orange juice for the Southern Comfort.

      Steve's Martini

      This shaken-not-stirred recipe uses St. Germain, a French liqueur flavored with elderflower blossoms, but you can substitute orange liqueur and three dashes of Angostura bitters. "Shaking does much more than simply chill the drink," says Steve McDonagh, television personality and recipe developer. "It incorporates water and softens the alcohol edge; essential for a well-balanced cocktail."
