Summer entertaining/desserts

Spending time with friends and family outdoors is what makes the summer time so much fun.  If it’s a weekday dinner or weekend summer party that you are hosting, there are several things you can do to make your
summer events a splash.

When it already feels like and oven outside the last thing you want to do is stand in front of yours all afternoon.  Get outside and grill.  Grilling is a healthy way to cook without using all of the unhealthy sauces that are filled with calories and fat.  Fresh grilled hamburgers and hot dogs are the easy way to go, but grilled fish, lamb, steaks and chicken add a little bit of sophistication while still keeping things simple and light.

 Use the natural foods that are in season to highlight your party or dinner. Watermelon, corn, melons, peaches, apricots, berries, and oranges are all ripe this time of year.  While corn on the cob is a great dinner favorite, fruits can be served chilled and are packed with nutrients.
