We've all experienced that familiar cookout culprit: a bowl of warmed-over, slightly soggy fruit salad that's 90% melon. No more! These fruit salad pops are an whimsical way to squeeze in some fruity nutrients between the hot dogs and ice cream. You know, if you're into that sort of thing.

Fruit Salad Ice Pops
1 peach, cut into 1/2-inch slices (1/2 cup)
2 kiwis, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
3 ounces blueberries (1/2 cup)
4 ounces strawberries, hulled and halved ( 3/4 cup)
1 1/2 to 2 cups 100 percent white-grape juice
1. Arrange some of each fruit in eight 3-ounce ice-pop molds, making sure pieces fit very snugly. Pour enough juice into each mold to just cover fruit. Insert ice-pop sticks and freeze until solid, 6 hours (or up to 2 weeks).

On tonight's finale, the frenemy pranksters Jim Halpert (John Krasinski), also known as "Big Tuna," and Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) finally reveal their true friendship. You may have never guessed it, but Dwight asks Jim to be his best man at his wedding to longtime love, Angela Martin (Angela Kinsey). So we thought, what better way to celebrate this momentous occasion than by cooking a Jim-and-Dwight BFF feast? While keeping your eyes out for a Michael Scott (Steve Carell) cameo at the wedding tonight, munch on this honorary Big Tuna/Schrute Farms meal! Don't forget the tissues!
The perfect choice to celebrate Jim
"Big Tuna" Cakes:
Anne Coleman took her traditional tuna cakes recipe and revamped it, replacing salted top saltines, whole egg, and baking rather than frying. The result is just as delicious but far healthier. Put this tuna cake between two pieces of bread and you've got the ultimate "Big Tuna" sandwich!...Read More »
Fabio takes on hamburgers and hot dogs with spectacular results, and shows easy tips on how to set up your charcoal grill for awesome summer barbecues. Step up your game this grill season and turn up the heat with Fabio's awesome BBQ recipes! Featuring special guest, Dean McDermott.
- Simple foods don't have to be bland just because you're cooking on the grill. Seasoning and sauces add flavor to everything: add grilled, chopped veggies to hot dogs, or dress up burgers with a great barbecue sauce.
- Fabio's simple charcoal grilling tips will help you cook everything to perfection.
- Stack your coals into a pyramid before lighting them. This maximizes the heat you'll get out of them. When they are burning white, spread the coals out to create more surface area to cook.
- Don't overuse lighter fluid. The flames may look pretty, but you want hot, radiant coals, not a fireball, which will burn your food on the outside and leave

Strawberry shortcake never tasted so good -- or so nuanced. Heavy cream is steeped with basil then whipped, infusing it with its essence. Cover the cream with plastic wrap while it steeps to ensure that the basil flavor doesn't evaporate.
Shortcake is best served within 4 hours of baking but can be stored, untopped, at room temperature for up to 8 hours. Basil cream can be refrigerated for up to 1 day; whip just before using. Berries can macerate for up to 3 hours.
Strawberry Shortcake with Basil
2 1/4 cups cold heavy cream, plus 2 tablespoons, for brushing
20 large basil leaves, plus 1/3 cup small or torn basil leaves
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus more if needed
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
2 sticks plus 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 1/2 cups sliced strawberries (1 pound 4 ounces)
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

My after-school snack was a sacred ritual. I sat on the carpet in my parents' bedroom at a low table, the television turned to "I Dream of Jeannie," and ate a peanut butter and honey sandwich cut into neat squares. I wasn't fussy about crusts. I just loved the sticky pairing of creamy peanut butter with syrupy golden sweetness drizzled from a honey bear in diagonals across the soft white bread. Nothing else--save for maybe apples and peanut butter in a pinch--could have made for as sweet an
