Here's my standard reminder... don't post the answer or any outright spoilers before the deadline of Thursday at 3pm ET. If you know the answer, click the link and submit it to NPR, but don't give it away here. Thank you.

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Jul 20, 2014): In Summer:
Q: Name something in five letters that's nice to have a lot of in the summer. Change the last letter to the following letter of the alphabet. Rearrange the result, and you'll name something else that you probably have a lot of in the summer, but that you probably don't want. What is it? (HINT: the second thing is a form of the first thing.)
What are you waiting for? A clue to this ridiculously easy puzzle?

Edit: My hint was "what are"...
A: WATER --> SWEAT

### NPR Sunday Puzzle (Jul 13, 2014): A Watched Pot Never Boils

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Jul 13, 2014): A Watched Pot Never Boils:
Q: Think of a popular TV show about cooking. I guarantee it's a show everyone has heard of. Remove the second and third letters of the first word and insert them after the first letter of the second word. You'll get a phrase for a different kind of cooking. What is it?
The only thing I can bring to the table this week is to think outside the box.

Edit: My hints were table and box. We have the periodic table of elements made up of boxes, and the "Breaking Bad" logo has Br and Ba inside boxes representing elements. Box also refers to a bread box as well as truly thinking outside the box for other ways of "cooking".
