Cookout season kicks off this holiday weekend, and with ideas from our readers, we’re ready to get started. Plus, we’ve included the latest feedback on our yogurt taste test, including a savory yogurt-based dip — perfect for nibbling while you get your grill on.

We celebrated National Burger Day on Friday with some better-for-you burgers:
“My new favorite is buffalo burgers! Very lean and gives me that “beefy” flavor I crave.” –Linda

“Add chopped sun-dried tomatoes to your meat before cooking — yummy and nutritious!” –Diane

From Taste Test: Nonfat Vanilla Yogurt:
“I eat the 0% fat Greek yogurt with a squeeze of honey. I have never enjoyed yogurt or honey so much! It’s pricey, so I spent $20.00 and bought a yogurt maker, and now make low-fat yogurt and dips (I add a minced clove of garlic, some dill, freshly ground pepper and a scant sprinkle of salt). My next move is to make fat-free yogurt. Have only made 1% and 2% thus far.” –Denise

“When I get home with fresh fruit, I put it in the blender then freeze in ice cube trays and put in baggies. When I want a smoothie, I add several different ones with plain nonfat Greek yogurt back in the blender. Add a little almond milk to thin if necessary. –Miriam

What better way to cap off a summer celebration than with a bowl of seasonalstrawberries?
“I like strawberries sliced and drizzled with very aged balsamic and fresh cracked black pepper, or quartered with a dollop of plain yogurt or low-fat sour cream and a sprinkle of brown sugar (ala Romanov style). –Linda

  4. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
