July 2021 Magazine

It seems everyone has something to look forward to in July. With backyard barbecues, fireworks, and family vacations, this month can be summed up in a single word: fun. This issue of American Lifestyle offers even more ways to embrace and enjoy everything July has in store.

Summer wouldn’t be nearly as magical without everyone’s favorite frozen treat—ice cream. And that’s no exaggeration. Ice cream is consistently voted at the top of America’s most beloved desserts. Learn more about its history and some of the most popular places to get your scoop this season.

Fresh produce is another favorite summertime indulgence. Strawberries, watermelon, corn, tomatoes—they’re all in-season in summer and ripe for the picking. Read about how to select the freshest fruits and veggies at the store and how to keep your produce fresh for longer.

Speaking of fresh fruits and desserts, fire up the grill (yes, the grill) for three creative, summery recipes using cantaloupe, peaches, and mangoes. Grilling the fruit brings out its natural sugars and caramelizes them, making them irresistibly good. Try it for yourself!

Lastly, you don’t have to wait until fall or winter to give your home a cozy makeover. The latest design trend for 2021, Japandi, combines the comfort of Scandinavian hygge with the minimalism of Japanese design for a stunning look. Discover how you can achieve this style in your home.

Here’s to celebrating summer at its best! As always, it’s a pleasure to send you this magazine.
