I have been wanting to join for months now. This is the birthday gift I requested from my husband. I can't wait to select my software title that comes with joining and am hoping to get more organizing tips from the weekly letters.

Great Summer Sides
by Patty Osborne and Alice Osborne

There is nothing better than a great side dish to go with your picnic, dinner, or whatever. Here are three recipes from the Food Network Kitchens that we have enjoyed, and want to share with you.

Herb Toasts
Serves 8

Slice a baguette in half crosswise, then cut each half lengthwise into 4 sticks. Cook 3 tablespoons minced red onion in 4 tablespoons butter until soft. Season with salt and pepper and add 1/4 cup minced mixed herbs. Brush onto the bread and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake at 400 degrees until golden, 10 to 15 minutes.

Steamed Artichokes

Trim and halve 2 artichokes. Season with salt; place cut-side down in a bowl with some lemon wedges and thyme sprigs. Pour in 1/3 cup each white wine and olive oil; cover and microwave 20 minutes. Mix a bit of the cooking liquid with mayonnaise for a dipping sauce.
