My first apartment had no air conditioner, which meant on sweltering summer days, I'd practically get heat-induced hallucinations of frozen drinks (not necessarily alcoholic, by the way). I would plod down to the nearby deli, where a self-serve slushie machine hummed out front. I could choose the amount of syrup (not so much), yank a lever that gave a satisfyingly old-school clunk, and out oozed the perfect mix of ice and liquid.

Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day -- but brunch is definitely the most enjoyable. A perfect fusion of the best parts of breakfast and lunch (and, if you like, happy hour), brunch is nearly impossible not to love. Brunch can be savory or sweet, hearty or light -- or all of the above -- depending on your mood.
Wine, beer, and spirits aren't just for cocktail hour; alcoholic beverages can also be essential ingredients in marinades, sauces, dips, and desserts.

Oh, my dear darling raspberries -- the best fruit in the history of the universe, and I don't want any arguments. Raspberries are best. I'm not one of those people who refuse to eat fruit out of season; you can actually get decent fresh raspberries year-round, and frozen raspberries are exceptionally useful.
