The Joys of

Summer W

Redo

hether it’s that quintessential aroma of summer: sunscreen, or the cheerful sounds of splishing and splashing in the pool; summer has always held a special place in our hearts.

Nearly three million people visit this national park each year making it one of the most popular in the U.S. Enrich your summer vacation by taking a road trip to this iconic monument.

• Fudgesicles • Collecting ladybugs • Chubby toddler hands crafting a sand castle • The first night back in your own bed after returning from your summer vacation

itchens have always been the heart of the home.

• Red-checked tablecloths and heaping bowls of juicy watermelon

Dressed For Success

• The nostalgic smell of charcoal briquettes • Icy six-pack? Check. Bag of peanuts? Got it. Big-screen TV? You bet. Settling in with Dad for a baseball double-header

Ready for a bit of an update? Simply incorporate some of the newest trends in kitchen color and finishes. This year brings us light and neutral tones with shades of gray and soft greens as the newest hues. Black and white is always timeless. Task lighting that is functional but also aesthetically pleasing is key.

• The crash and flash of summer thunderstorms

For countertops, granite is still king however, new products

• Family reunions

Thoroughly Modern Each year brings new and amazing technological updates to the kitchen, like smart home apps that automate and access your appliances when you’re not even in the neighborhood. Ease, comfort and technology seem to be the mainstays in modern kitchen design. With new innovations created constantly, there are more and more ways to customize the heart of your home to the room your heart longs for: Your dream kitchen.

A Place For Everyone

• Watching dandelion seed heads blow away like hundreds of tiny parachutes

• Tanned legs and strappy sandals

Islands create informal seating, extra workspace and storage. Today’s islands feature different levels and special amenities such as a second prep sink, convenient shelves, built-in wine storage, plus cooling and warming drawers.

Homeowners are always searching for ways to make their kitchen even more comforting and convenient. So, what’s cookin’ in today’s kitchens? Now more than ever, families continue to congregate in the kitchen. So highly personalized and larger kitchens – with comfy sitting areas, media and computer stations, and family-oriented amenities – are a top priority. Plus, with the wildly popular Food Channel and many culinary shows, more and more people are spending time actually cooking in those kitchens.

• Cuddling up on the hammock and marveling at the night sky to the serenade of crickets and cicadas • Homemade peach cobbler • Floating down the river with Jimmy Buffet tunes cranked way up!

Arugula Walnut Pesto Pasta

• The sheer bliss on your pooch’s face as he leaps joyously into the pool • Digging your toes in warm sand while sipping a frozen, umbrella-embellished margarita • Saturday morning Farmer’s Markets • Mouthwatering strawberries the size of your fist • Pig racing, demolition derbies, pie- eating contests. Nothing says summer like a country fair! • Wiping the melted butter dribbling down your chin while diving into a delicious corn on the cob • Spending all day Saturday, and Sunday Fishing or Sleeping

YOUR LIFE

FLAVORFUL

Majestic figures of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, surrounded by the beauty of the Black Hills of South Dakota, tell the story of the birth, growth, development and preservation of this country. From the history of the first inhabitants to the diversity of America today, Mount Rushmore brings visitors face to face with the rich heritage we all share.

• The way the hot sun envelops your body in warmth and sometimes makes your stomach flip-flop in pleasure

The Best Laid Plans If you’re planning a remodel, consider your cooking style. If you are the sole cook, the traditional triangle (stove, sink, refrigerator) is functional. With more cooks in the kitchen, workstations such as vegetable prep, baking centers, and sauce/spice stations add functionality. Your dream kitchen might also contain a dedicated coffee bar, wine nook; even a woodburning pizza oven.

Here, we celebrate the season with all of the joys that are uniquely summer, along with little inspirations on relishing your own simple pleasures this time of year.

AMERICAN HISTORY – ALIVE IN STONE

like stained and sealed concrete or rustic limestone are gaining ground. Backsplashes get a lift with glass mosaics, bamboo, pounded copper and even cork. Flooring made of reclaimed wood, or natural stone are especially beautiful. Stainless steel continues to be popular as well as “hidden” appliances that blend in with the cabinetry

INGREDIENTS 4 oz 1/2 c 1 tsp 2 tbsp

Arugula Toasted walnuts Chopped garlic Grated parmesan

1/4 c 1/2 tsp 1 tsp

Olive oil Chili flakes Apple cider vinegar Salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS Chop down the arugula so it fits in a food processor. Add all ingredients except oil. Run the machine, and begin adding the oil. You may need more or less oil, so just adjust as needed. Season to taste. We recommend Tagliatelle or Pappardelle pasta noodles for this dish. Bring salt water to a boil and then add your noodles. Boil for 5-7 minutes for al dente. Remove pasta from water and into strainer. Combine pasta and pesto sauce and serve immediately and enjoy!
