Summer is the perfect time to make improvements on your outdoor living space. With longer days, gentler weather, and seasonal activities like barbecues and pool parties as inspiration, it doesn’t require a lot of extra motivation to get the tools out and spend a Saturday building an exciting new addition to your outdoor rooms.


Hot dogs are a summer staple when planning the menu for weekend picnics, Independence Day celebrations and backyard barbecues. They’re easy to cook, taste great on the grill and are surprisingly versatile. Epicurean hot dogs are becoming increasingly trendy at top restaurants, but we think they taste best when surrounded by family and friends in your own backyard.
