{Enter to Win!} Looking Back at the Iconic Hamilton Beach Drink Mixer + Duff Goldman Giveaway

Hamilton Beach knows how to mix things up. In 1911, our original drink mixer created a sensation making malts for eager customers in drugstore fountains across America. Throughout the early twentieth century, the Hamilton Beach Drink Mixer was busy mixing treats in almost every local soda fountain and ice cream parlor.

We will be giving away a Hamilton Beach Drink Mixer every Friday in the month of July.
The first three winners will receive a DrinkMaster® Drink Mixer in white, black or chrome.

The grand prize winner will receive the Triple Spindle Drink Mixer signed by Duff Goldman at the 2011 Blue Moon Burger Bash.

Our Best Slow Cooker Recipes: North Carolina Pulled Pork Barbecue

I am invited, like many of you, to a 4th of July potluck at a friend’s house where we will celebrate by listening to music, eating wonderful food and enjoying each other’s company.

Food Focus: How to Clean and Store Lettuce

We all know how easy it is to rip open a bag of lettuce for a pre-dinner salad, but what if fresh lettuce was just as easy and tasted much better? That would be great, right?

We eat salads with kale, Bibb lettuce, romaine, and arugula. A great way to keep salads interesting is to change them up every time…

Black Cow Day

Pat, Laurie and I all have something very important in common: we love ice cream. Everywhere we go, we make sure we stop at local ice cream shops to try the homemade flavors and compare notes. When we heard about Black Cow Day, we couldn’t wait to get in the test kitchen and make ice cream so we could create a root beer float for you.
