  • Meat, veggies, people benefit from flavorful marinades May 21, 2014 5:30 AM
    Before Julie Widmer tosses anything on the grill this summer, she’ll toss it in a marinade. The Streamwood mom knows that marinades infuse flavor into shrimp, pork or whatever else she might be planning for dinner. This week, as part of the Daily Herald's Get Your Summer On series, we look at the hows and whys behind marinades and share some great grilling recipes for your Memorial Day cookout.

     
  • Eyesore, or oasis? May 29, 2014 11:57 AM
    This, folks, is a backyard fail! It’s ugly, empty and poorly maintained. But even though its current state is more eyesore than oasis, I believe it has potential!

     
  • Patio to the rescue May 29, 2014 11:57 AM
    We purchased a new construction home, and I was excited about starting with a blank slate because I enjoy gardening. We try to use our backyard, but our backyard faces south and is extremely hot during the summer. We would love to be able to afford a shaded patio.

     
  • Nothing but sun May 29, 2014 11:56 AM
    We had our house built 10 years ago. We have three kids and only one income and we have put the yard last on the list of priorities.

     
  • Time for dreams to grow May 18, 2014 1:01 AM
    Twenty-four years ago I moved in as a happy family with husband and kids with dreams of building a deck, doing some nice landscaping and being able to have family and friends over and entertain during the warm months out back. Well, things did not go as planned.

     
  • Restore yard to former beauty May 18, 2014 1:01 AM
    Twenty-five years ago when we bought this home, my husband promised me a new deck if I settled for a house that was in less than mint condition. Well still no deck, not even an improved patio. Same cracks, same wooden flower beds, same area under the eaves where nothing seems to grow.

     
  • Outdoor cooking taken to a new level May 18, 2014 1:01 AM
    Today, true outdoor cooking aficionados have options when it comes to preparing a meal outdoors and many of them use those options almost year-round instead of just in the summer. There are smokers that use wood pellets for indirect cooking like in an oven. There are gas-powered infrared grills that cook steaks and other meats to perfection.

     
  • A work in progress May 29, 2014 11:56 AM
    My backyard has been a slow work in progress (and a source of great enjoyment) for the past 19 years but the patio is just too small. A do-it-yourself pond which is now beyond repair takes up valuable space. The pond needs to be moved and one day rebuilt correctly.

     
  • Pie-shaped yard a challenge May 15, 2014 1:01 AM
    We have a small pie-shaped backyard that has been a huge challenge to work with. Now that the kids have all grown up and begun to move on, I would love to have a new backyard to entertain the adults in the neighborhood, or in which to just relax on a quiet summer evening.

     
  • Updates badly needed May 15, 2014 1:01 AM
    Seven years ago we bought a townhouse and planned to live in for three to five years, then buy bigger home and start family. Two years later, market tanked, housing values tanked and we were stuck! It took us eight years to save enough to buy a bigger home!

     
  • Yard, deck not welcoming May 15, 2014 1:01 AM
    When we moved to our house 15 years ago, we were excited about our large deck and backyard and looked forward to spending our summers entertaining. This was especially true as we met all our neighbors and settled into the community.

     
  • Gardening allows for more healthy food choices May 15, 2014 7:01 AM
    Homeowners are increasingly choosing to plant, carefully water and eventually harvest their own food to put on their tables. Garden centers around the area are responding to this interest by offering more and more vegetable plants and fruit plants, shrubs and trees, as well as organic seeds and other supplies to facilitate this movement.

     
  • Move over beef: Pork, shrimp, beans take their turn between the buns May 14, 2014 9:37 AM
    There was a time, not too long ago, when you invited people over for burgers on the grill they’d assume you meant a traditional beef hamburger. But today the definition of burger has expanded beyond the barnyard to include patties of all sorts, from shrimp to quinoa to beans. “There are purists who say that a burger is beef, and that’s fine, but the bottom line is that I call a burger a burger whether it’s eggplant or beans or shrimp,” says grilling guru Jamie Purviance.
