editor’s note

By the time midsummer arrives at our house, chalk drawings splash across our driveway, tan lines are in full force—despite my vigilance with the sunscreen—and we’ve kicked off many weekends with breakfast cooked in a skillet over the firepit. Our summer habits are predictable, comfortable, satisfyingly familiar. But with each passing year, the season also reveals some surprises. As our two daughters grow and their interests evolve, we make new memories and check new destinations off our travel bucket list. Up next: Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. We can’t wait to see the new Asian Highlands exhibit. This summer reveals a change for Midwest Living, too. I’m so excited to introduce myself to you as the new editor-in-chief of our 32-year-old brand. A little about me: I grew up in…

over the river, into the woods

OUTFITTER JOE MCCARMISH nudges my kayak off the dock into the murky water. Then he sets me straight down the Cache River, which feels more Louisiana bayou than Midwest tributary. Near the Kentucky line, the southern Illinois waterway marks the start of the Gulf Coastal Plain, which stretches 500-some miles to the Gulf of Mexico. Joe guides me down a water trail through trees that sprouted before the 12th century. They form North America’s northernmost cypress marsh, which feels as remote as I imagine it did when French voyageurs named the Cache in the 1800s. But some locals have changed. “Watch for flying Asian carp,” Joe says. With no predator, the invasive fish has become an issue for some of the 100 endangered and threatened species native to this fragile…

smash hit

FOR DECADES, Weber’s iconic kettle grills have been a fixture on American patios. And also for decades (two, to be precise) Jamie Purviance has been the Chicagoland company’s master griller and cookbook-writer-in-chief. His new title, Weber’s Ultimate Grilling (Houghton Mifflin, $27), is a tip-packed, step-by-step compendium of more than 125 deliciously approachable recipes—including a diner-style burger you make outside on a cast-iron griddle pan. “The basic American hamburger has not changed one iota. It’s juicy, rich and charred with a flavor-packed crust,” Jamie says. To achieve that exterior, you need a solid cooking surface, and you have to break a cardinal rule: Do press the patty with your spatula. In fact, Jamie adds, “Permission granted to really put some weight into the smash. You want to create as much direct contact…

eyes to the sky

ADLER PLANETARIUM Chicago ARMSTRONG AIR AND SPACE MUSEUM Wapakoneta, Ohio BADLANDS NATIONAL PARK South Dakota HEADLANDS INTERNATIONAL DARK SKY PARK Mackinaw City, Michigan COSMOSPHERE Hutchinson, Kansas SUNLIGHT GLINTS OFF A SPACECRAFT perched on its landing gear like an interstellar insect—in a tiny memorial park next to a small-town airstrip. Even earthbound and at half-scale, the Apollo 11 Lunar Module evokes the dreamlike moment when the world watched Neil Armstrong’s boots touch moondust in 1969. That giant leap started right here in Warren, Ohio, where 6-year-old Armstrong first took to the sky aboard a Ford TriMotor airplane. Armstrong isn’t Ohio’s only flight hero. The Wright brothers began tinkering with gliders in their Dayton bike shop in the 1890s. And since then, Ohio has produced 25 astronauts, including John Glenn, the first American to orbit Earth, and Jim…

blue sky special

MOUTHWATERING SMOKE WAFTS from a sizzling grill as plates plunk down on a table and icy cans open with a hiss-pop. A backyard barbecue satisfies primal cravings for food cooked over fire—and even rock-star chefs are not immune. “I simply love grilling,” says Chicago-based Stephanie Izard, who shot to foodie fame on Top Chef and just opened Cabra, her fourth eatery in the city. “It’s quick. Easy cleanup. Fun entertaining. Great flavor. Best way to eat in summer for sure.” Despite a hectic schedule, Stephanie and her husband, Gary Valentine, a craft beer consultant, like to host friends in the outdoor kitchen behind their West Loop home. The custom space, designed by Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet, includes a built-in grill, cooktop burners and refrigerator drawers in a 13-foot-long L-shape. The venue gets its…
