happy birthday,   rach!

Hi, Boss! Surprise! We just wanted to say happy 50th to the most talented, generous, funny, smart, supercool media (and all that other stuff) mogul out there. We love what we do, because we love what you do, and we wish you 50 more years of crushing every damn thing you try. XO, The Rachael Ray Every Day Staff WE ASKED READERS FOR THEIR BIRTHDAY MESSAGES, AND THEY FLOODED OUR SOCIAL FEEDS. A FEW FAVORITES: Hi, Rach! Since I see you every morning on TV, that means we’re friends, right? So it’s only right that I wish you a happy five-oh! Strut your stuff, Girl.—Darnesha SmithI’m wishing a happy birthday to the one and only Rachael Ray, who not only helped me get back my love of cooking that I’d lost so many…

is it hot in here?!

Summer is when I have the most time to relax and entertain—most of us do. That’s why it’s ironic that no season makes me feel less relaxed or ready to entertain. Long, hot days make me cranky and sticky—I feel dirty before I even start cooking. I’m not very good at doing nothing at all, but even less so when I’m covered in my own sweat! Yuck! That said, I never pass on visits from the friends and family who are more available in the summer. And by the time the food and drink hit the table, I’m over my issues and I roll sweaty and deep into the “summer fun” of it all. This August, I turn 50, and to celebrate, I’m writing a book that’s a wild and fun…

cool pools

COOL FINDS, HOT TRENDS & GOTTA-KNOW NEWS From rainbow unicorns to bright ice pops, pool floats were pure Instagram bait in 2017. This summer, it’s all about the Minnidip ($70, minnidip.com). Branded as “the first designer inflatable pool,” the sleek watering hole is the brainchild of designer Emily Vaca, who figured, Why can’t wading pools be cute? The prints—banana leaf, watermelon, and doughnut—cater to your inner child, but the dimensions (5½ feet wide by 1½ feet tall) and durability (it’s made of heavy-weight PVC) are adult-friendly. Take a dip for a quick cooldown, or better yet, fill ’em with ice and bottles of your favorite rosé for your next backyard bash. PHOTO: GREEN EYE’S IMAGING/COURTESY OF LAUR LORE.

’cue kids   on the block

NEW YORK CITY Yankee ’cue is a little fancy (think microgreens sprinkled on wings) and influenced by what Billy Durney, owner of Hometown Bar-B-Que (hometownbarbque.com), calls “the most multicultural culinary scene in the world.” BBQ fans can find global grub (Jamaican jerk ribs, Oaxacan chicken) at Hometown and haute riffs on Southern standards at Mighty Quinn’s (mightyquinnsbbq.com). LOS ANGELES To do Cali barbecue like a local, you have to go underground. We’re talking brisket and ribs doled out in nondescript backyards at spots like Moo’s Craft Barbecue (mooscraftbarbecue.com) and Ragtop Fern’s BBQ. “I didn’t realize how big of a scene we have until I got into it myself,” says Burt Bakman of Trudy’s Underground Barbecue (trudysundergroundbarbecue.com). CHICAGO In the Windy City, it’s a tale of (at least) two ’cues. On one hand, you’ve got old-school…

beach reads

FOR THE CHICK-LIT LOVER THE HUSBAND HOUR, BY JAMIE BRENNER After her soldier husband is killed in action, Lauren Adelman retreats to her family’s beach house—only to find her peace punctured when her overbearing parents move in and a documentary filmmaker enters the scene. Expect plenty of family secrets and warm-weather romance. FOR THE TV ADDICT BACHELOR NATION, BY AMY KAUFMAN If you know your Alex Michels from your Arie Jr.s, this is the book for you. In this look inside the Bachelor franchise, writer Amy Kaufman crams in enough behind-the-scenes bombshells to power an entire season of reality TV.
