This week, we’re welcoming summer party season with Laundry Evangelist, Patric Richardson who brings us amazing solutions for your outdoor (and indoor) food stains. His book is Laundry Love: Finding Joy in a Common Chore. Then, we talk with Nicole A. Taylor author of Watermelon and Red Birds: A Cookbook for Juneteenth and Black Celebrations, about her favorite cookout recipes and what you might find on the Juneteenth table, from seasonal fruits and vegetables to her own spin on the traditional African American dishes. She leaves us with her infamous recipe, Southern-ish Potato Salad. Then, we talk easy, light, and refreshing cocktails that are perfect for your guests on a hot summer day with bartender, Natasha David. From incorporating watermelon juice into punches to adding fruit liquor to a spritz, she has great ideas for low-alcohol drinking. Her latest book is Drink Lightly, and she leaves us with a recipe, Jam Session.
