TIP OF THE DAY: July 4th Burgers

Celebrate your independence on July 4th by grilling ground meat other than beef. We’re not talking turkey burgers, but:


They may not be familiar between-the-bun choices, but they’re terrific and also healthier than beef—lower in fat, calories and cholesterol. (In fact, we prefer them to beef burgers.)

Check with your butcher, or consider a sampler pack from Blackwing Quality Meats, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week and North America’s leading producer of certified organic meats.

A seven-pound sampler of tender, delicious “alternative” ground meats includes all of the varieties above plus Piedmontese beef, a uniquely lean and tender heirloom cattle breed that originated 25,000 years ago in the foothills of the Italian Alps.

  • Check out the sampler at (search for “ground sampler”).
  • Want to stick with beef? Snazz it up with our 35+ burger recipes: more than a month’s worth of different ways to serve a burger.

Yesterday’s posts focused on tea. Now coffee gets its turn—in the form of coffee candy.

The artisans at How Do You Take Your Coffee?, a confectioner in Reno, Nevada, like their coffee so much that they freshly roast their own beans prior to making four different types of coffee candy.

The candies are innovative and sure to please the coffee lover—and the chocolate lover, too, since there’s a touch of chocolate in each.

The line is very different from Caffe Acapella coffee bars, a prior Top Pick Of The Week. Caffe Acapella make a chocolate bar-like product that’s all coffee.

How Do You Take Your Coffee? has bite-size candies—like the Java Rocks in the photo plus coffee and chocolate in a candy shell (think coffee M&Ms). The company uses fairly-traded coffee beans to make its products.
