Martha's special issue Outdoor Living is a keeper. I don't have much of a green thumb and Martha's gardening issue isn't always my favorite, but this publication takes a well-rounded look at all things outdoors. Filled with gardening, cooking, entertaining and decorating ideas, there's something for everyone. Some of the ideas have been compiled from the archives, some are brand new, all are good. Reading through this magazine, I found myself longing for hot summer days ... and in Texas, that's really something!

This issue has sixteen colorful pages of Good Things and I put two to the test this weekend. I grilled chicken with Martha's Barbecue Rub (not found in Outdoor Living, but voted Best Rub by my family) and served Grilled Corn Disks on the side. This is a new favorite recipe of mine ... simple, delicious, and perfect summer fare. We finished dinner with Five-Minute Blueberry Topping. You can't beat a five minute recipe with only three ingredients. Served over vanilla ice cream, this topping is delicious.
