I tried four successful on the weekend of Aug. 10 and 11, 2013. Click on the links to get the recipes:

Vodka-Grape Sparkler: This recipe from Bobby Flay is a grown-up grape soda. I made half of the recipe, and it produced three very decent-sized cocktails.

Herb Green Beans with Feta: If you’ve been plagued by the problem of mushy, overcooked and unappetizing beans, take this recipe for a whirl. It produces crisp beans with delicious overtones of mint and dill.

Summer Twang: This non-alcoholic drink is a definite refresher. The base is a combination of pureed cantaloupe, honey and apple cider vinegar, and it’s finished off with club soda. The recipe makes two large or four small servings.

Raspberry Pops: I substituted an equal amount of Splenda for sugar in this simple recipe that produces refreshing, delicious ice pops. I used my handy-dandy Zoku instant ice-pop maker to freeze them.
