As soon as the slightest suggestion of warmer weather is in the air, the Everyday Food test kitchen's affections for a hot afternoon tea turn to a refreshing iced coffee. We all know the numbness of the 3 o'clock slump, but few rally like the test kitchen staff.
It's like a beautiful choreographed dance: One of us grabs the stash of Illy espresso while one of us pulls out the stove-top espresso pot, measures three heaping tablespoons of coffee, and fills the bottom of the pot with water; meanwhile one of us mans the Bodum milk frother and hastily churns and froths whole milk for our iced coffees. While the coffee brews, another grabs an ice bath to chill the coffee. Soon, we're all enjoying a much-needed caffeinated libation. With pick-me-up in hand, we finish the day without longing for a nap.
1. Add three heaping tablespoons to the basket, but do not tamp it down! 2. Brew with lid open over moderate heat and remove immediately when crema
Some kitchen tasks are way more fun than others. Mincing garlic? Hate it. Whipping up meringue? Love it! Charring and peeling bell peppers? Ugh-THE worst! One of my absolute favorite jobs in the kitchen is frosting a layer cake-I find it to be such a calming, zen activity. (Or, I'm just a sugar addict. I actually aspire to be one of those people who perpetually keeps a frosted layer cake sitting on the counter at home under a glass dome, like the folks at my local diner or Meryl Streep's character in It's Complicated.)Read More »from 6 Professional Tips for Frosting a Cake

Lighting is one of the easiest (and least-expensive) ways to cast an enchanting spell on any outdoor space. Try these ideas when you want to illuminate a setting and create a distinctive mood.
Bars and buffet tables must be adequately lighted, but they're often located far from electrical outlets. An easy, inexpensive solution is to gather clear apothecary bottles and fill them with lamp oil and wicks. Arrange the bottles under a large hurricane for protection; we set these on a sturdy glass cake stand (make sure the bottles are evenly balanced on the stand).
Geometric "topiaries" inspired by the paper sculptures of Isamu Noguchi stand on both sides of this swimming pool. A few white plastic beach balls tied to weighted lines float in the pool like pearls cut loose from a giant strand (for safety, never cover the surface of a pool with a large number of balls).
