Grilled Shrimp Wrapped with Prosciutto on Rosemary Skewers courtesy of Chef Sally Cameron, AFoodCentricLife.com If you have rosemary in your garden, clip 14-inch-long sturdy sprigs to make skewers.

Pretzel Crisps Bar!
Summer is a time for entertaining, and to help you host the ultimate celebration, Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps is here to break down a how-to guide for the ultimate Pretzel Crisps Bar. Here are the top four tips from Campbell’s Chef Kaylee Gill:
Tip 1: Don’t Be Afraid to Experiment Experimenting with flavors can lead to exciting new concoctions and unlock unexpected taste profiles. This is the perfect moment to rethink your pretzel. Think outside the box, grab new flavors of Pretzel Crisps you haven’t tried before, and pair them with dips and toppings you might not always put together — remember, opposites attract. If you find yourself stuck, think of some of your favorite foods or flavor combinations and use them as inspiration. Are you a fan of bagels and cream cheese? Try out Everything Pretzel Crisps paired with cream cheese and lox, and garnish with pickled red onions and dill for added flavor.
Tip 2: Play With Your Display When it comes to hosting, don’t forget the importance of presentation! A great way to drum up excitement with your guests and encourage them to try out different offerings is to focus on how you’re displaying the tasty treats. Try out a high-low setup using cake stands or elevated plates to show off the bites, and incorporate a variety of looks with your everyday platters and serving ware for added flare. A fun way to switch things up? Try out snacks that are versatile — stackable and snackable.
Tip 3: Go For Variety Have a little fun with taste buds, and give your guests something to talk about! A great rule of thumb is to provide a range of salty and sweet options, and a variety of different base flavors. To kick things off, you can pair everything from Original Pretzel Crisps and beet hummus to Buffalo Wing Pretzel Crisps and buttermilk ranch. And for just the right amount of sweet indulgence, try the brand new Milk Chocolate & Caramel Drizzlers with a creme fraiche or the Dark Chocolate Drizzlers with an orange-almond butter. With all these flavors on your table, there’s always a fun new flavor profile to explore.
Tip 4: A Good Base is Key No matter what dips and toppings you try out, don’t forget that the foundation is key. Make sure your pairings have a crowd-pleasing base. To set your display up for success, lay out an assortment of fan-favorite Pretzel Crisps and have them easily accessible throughout — from pre-spreading some for ease and inspiration, to stacking them right at your guests’ fingertips. Make a splash at your next party with these goto tips, and most importantly, have fun!

DO WHAT THE PRO’S DO AND BUILD YOUR PORTABLE COOKOUT KIT. YOU’LL NEVER FORGET YOUR GEAR AGAIN. GRILL APRON An obvious must-have. Don’t skip this! NEWSPAPER Perfect fire-starting material. KITCHEN SHEARS Whether you are snipping herbs or trimming a whole chicken, this is a must-have. RESEALABLE PLASTIC BAGS To marinate meat or soak skewers. WATER-FILLED SPRAY BOTTLE Tame flare-ups with a few squirts. GRILL BRUSH WITH SCRAPER Wrap the dirty head in an old grocery bag to keep your grill bag clean. SILICON BASTING BRUSH Natural-bristle brushes are OK, but silicon cleans easily and is melt-proof. SALT & PEPPER All a prime beef steak really needs. ALL-PURPOSE MEAT RUB A simple rub will go with most everything. BUTCHER’S TWINE Essential for tying up meat rolls and poultry. Keep it clean in a plastic bag. PAPER TOWELS Keep a roll on hand for blotting food, cleaning spills, and using as napkins.
NONSTICK SPRAY Use it to quickly grease a grill grate (but never over an open flame). PLANK Planks are handy for quick smoke. Keep a few in your kit, just in case. CULINARY TORCH Forget matches or lighters. This is one of the best ways to light a fire. LONG-HANDLE TONGS Quality metal tongs are essential. LONG-HANDLE METAL SPATULA Use a grilling spatula for best results. SKEWERS Metal skewers are the best bet; wood skewers are fine but will burn unless soaked in water for at least 30 minutes. CLEAN RAGS Use them as makeshift grill mitts or to grease a grill grate with vegetable oil. FOIL PANS To use as a drip pan or mixing bowl. ALUMINUM FOIL The most versatile item in your kit, foil can be used to bundle food, line pans, shield skewers from heat, form a makeshift drip pan, or cover resting steaks. Never leave home without it! MEAT THERMOMETER For optimal food safety, take temp of beef, chicken, and pork to ensure doneness.
eggies are ranked low on the list of popular grilled foods. Burgers are No. 1, followed by steak, chicken, hot dogs, pork chops and potatoes. Vegetables come in at No. 7, according to the NPD Group, a market research firm. That’s too bad, because grilling vegetables adds pizzazz to a meal, cooking experts say.
“ALMOST ANY VEGETABLE CAN BE A STAR ON THE GRILL” “It’s a perfect technique for someone who thinks they don’t like vegetables,” says Tina Ujlaki, Food & Wine’s executive food editor. “The grill brings out the best qualities of these nutrient-rich superstars by intensifying their natural flavors. If you brush another sauce or marinade on the top of them before, during or after cooking, you have three different opportunities to add even more flavor, interest and complexity.” Almost any vegetable can be a star on the grill, says Jessie Price, food editor of Eating Well. Asparagus is one of her favorites. She tosses it with olive oil, salt and pepper, lays it across the grate so it doesn’t fall through, and grills about six minutes. “Adding a little heart-healthy olive oil to almost any vegetable adds a great flavor and helps it cook nicely.” Ujlaki, also a contributor for the Food & Wine 2009 Annual Cookbook, is a big fan of cooking corn on the cob outside. “It adds a really nice dimension to corn. It gives it a little of that popcorn flavor.” You can grill it in the husk or out of the husk, without the silk. You can pull back the husk and use it as a handle. Afterward, you can brush the corn with a little olive oil mixed
with salt and chopped fresh herbs, she says. The grill is also “a really good friend to zucchini,” Ujlaki says. “It improves its flavor dramatically. You can cook it on the skewer with lemon wedges, and then when it’s done, squeeze the lemon over the zucchini.” Some harder, denser vegetables, including potatoes, carrots and celery root, should be cooked inside until just barely tender, and broccoli and cauliflower need to be blanched for a couple of minutes ahead of time -- then put on the grill, Ujlaki says.
Most vegetables are ready in under 10 minutes, but the exact time depends on the size and density, she says. You may want to use a grill basket for cooking cut-up vegetables outside, Price says. Pay close attention because they get done quickly, she says. Afterward, sprinkle them with a little vinaigrette, lemon juice or balsamic vinegar. “These are simple things that can add a lot of flavor but not a lot of calories.” Another way to spice them up is to make them into a salad, such as grilled pepper salad with different colored peppers or a potato salad with red potatoes. And throw some lettuce on the barbecue. “It does something magical to escarole or romaine,” Price says. In fact, grilled Caesar salads are becoming increasingly popular, Ujlaki says. To make one, you lightly brush olive oil on halved hearts of romaine lettuce, grill until just beginning to brown and then dress whole or cut them up in the salad. During the summer, Ujlaki sometimes offers her dinner guests a chance to create and grill their own kebabs. She sets out chunks or slices of vegetables (cherry tomatoes, onions, peppers, yellow squash, asparagus, sugar snap peas, zucchini, mushrooms, scallions, green beans) along with similarly sized pieces of quick- cooking meats, poultry and/or fish, and different sauces and marinades. “What’s great about this is some people like one vegetable, some like another, some only like one,” she says. “It’s a very, very easy way to make everybody happy, not do too much work and serve something healthful.”

THE BITE TOUR’S
By Barry ‘CB’ Martin
PREPARING GREAT BURGERS: Everyone has a favorite, but I use coarse-ground chuck – coarse because it holds together better and chuck because it has great flavor. And no more than 15% fat or watch out for flare-ups. Or even get leaner beef and add a bit of olive oil. Form the patties and season them to taste … then fold the meat over and press it back into patty shapes. Now the seasoning is on the inside which will evenly distribute the flavors. PREPARING SUCCULENT STEAKS: Beef cuts with marbled fat throughout are best for grilling over direct high heat. If I pay for prime or choice, I want to taste the meat, not a marinade. So I like a light sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper and sea salt. If you must marinate, remember that acids in citrus or vinegar tenderize the meat. Marinades with sugar will quickly burn so keep an eye on them. Sear steak at high heats then finish the grilling at a lower temp, and let your steak rest for about ten minutes before slicing it … that keeps every bite juicy. PREPARING BETTER CHICKEN: Buy the best quality you can afford, and fresh is best. Never let it reach room temperature, but try to avoid putting ice-cold chicken on the grill because that interferes with proper cooking. If you don’t brine your bird, then I recommend only a light seasoning of ground pepper and kosher or sea salt. You can also lightly spray chicken with canola oil to prevent sticking. Apply sauces and glazes during the final minutes of cooking … the same may be true for dry rubs because spices can burn when exposed to high temperatures. PREPARING VEGGIES AND FRUIT: Either requires little prep and are delicious sides or desserts for your tailgating party. If you’re grilling with infrared, set it at medium-high. Brush whole or wedged veggies with olive oil to promote sear marks, then finish at lower temps. Turn every minute or two until fork-tender. For fruit, oil the grate to keep it from sticking. Slice peaches or plums in half and remove pits, then grill pulp side down, turning once (takes no more than 5 minutes, don’t let it get mushy). Slice bananas or pineapple lengthwise and place directly on grill.
What Causes Heartburn? A Checklist
Your daily habits may be triggering your heartburn. While most heartburn sufferers may recognize the symptoms of the condition, few are aware of how it starts. The root cause of heartburn stems from a weakened lower esophageal sphincter (LES), or when the LES relaxes abnormally. The LES is a circular band of muscle at the bottom of your esophagus, and it acts like a ‘valve’ as it enters the stomach. Normally when you swallow, your LES relaxes to let food and liquid flow into your stomach, and then it closes again. For some people, though, the LES may open too often or not close tight enough. When this happens, the acid in your stomach can flow back up into your esophagus. Since your esophagus doesn’t have the same protective lining that your stomach does, the acid can irritate its more sensitive tissues, triggering heartburn and discomfort.
Foods That May Trigger Heartburn Although the actual cause of heartburn is physical, people generally view their heartburn triggers as the root cause. Though scientifically that’s not the case, it’s still worth noting which behaviors can trigger the experience of heartburn. Food, for instance, is a common heartburn trigger.
Check out this list of common offenders to see if any could be triggering your heartburn:
o Tomatoes, tomato sauce, and ketchup o Oranges, grapefruit, and other citrus fruits and juices o Garlic o Vinegar o Onions o Chocolate o Coffee, tea, or other caffeinated products o Alcohol o Peppermint o Fried & fatty foods o Carbonated drinks o Mustard, pepper, and other spices
Habits That May Trigger Heartburn Many people realize that their behaviors around mealtime, or the activities they take part in, also can cause heartburn. Here are some habits that could be triggering your heartburn symptoms: o Eating large meals or eating too fast o Laying down right after eating o Eating close to bedtime o Drinking alcohol or smoking
o Medication for a urinary tract infection o Muscle relaxants o Prescription pain killers o Antidepressants
Physical Changes & Conditions That May Trigger Heartburn Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true that your meals, habits, or even medication could be triggering your heartburn. But the fact is that heartburn is a real condition with biological causes.
o Pressure on the stomach from frequent bending over or tight clothes
Here are some physical reasons you could be suffering from heartburn:
o Stress and/or anxiety
o Acid Reflux
o Exercising soon after eating
o GERD or Acid Reflux Disease
Medications That May Trigger Heartburn There are some medications that can cause heartburn, because they may relax the LES. You may want to talk to your pharmacist or doctor about your heartburn if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking any of the following: o Medications for asthma or allergies o Prescription blood pressure or angina pills
o Weak esophageal muscles o Stomach emptying muscles o Obesity o Anxiety or depression o Hiatal hernia o Peptic ulcer Sponsored by:
