Lemonade is one of summer's great treats, but the store-bought stuff can be sickly sweet and filled with overly processed syrup. To help keep you cool this summer, Amy Wisniewski of the CHOW Test Kitchen demonstrates how to make a refreshing homemade version using our simple Pink Lemonade recipe.
The Pink Rabbit cocktail was created by Craig Nelson of Proof Cocktail Bar in Charleston, South Carolina. Mixologist Charlotte Voisey shows you how to make this sweet and spicy strawberry cocktail.
Easy Rice Pudding
A simple and supremely satisfying dessert, rice pudding is pure comfort in a bowl. It's easy to get there too! Just simmer white rice with whole milk, sugar, and a pinch of salt until the grains are tender, plump, and creamy, then stir in a little vanilla or almond extract while the pudding's still warm. Top however you like (fresh berries in season, dried fruit, toasted nuts for a crunchy contrast, a sprinkle of cinnamon, etc.) -- you really can't go wrong.
Slow Cooker Pork Ramen
A simple but delicious version of Japanese ramen, this soup starts with pork cooked to perfect tenderness in the crock pot, with garlic, ginger, leeks, mushrooms, and onions rounding out the flavors. The noodles are cooked separately just before serving, then the shredded pork and fragrant broth, with a little soy and sesame oil added, are ladled over top. A soft boiled egg makes a great garnish, as do shredded scallions or chopped baby spinach. Add some chile oil or Sriracha if you want to spice things up.
