Summer is full of hot weather, vacations, crazy schedules and, of course, hosting out-of-town visitors. Hosting guests in your home can seem daunting, but it can also be a chance to show off your creative side and really show them a good time!


This year, my family is privileged to have a goddess staying with us. OK, not an actual goddess, but she’s the Sauce Goddess! Jen Reynolds is flying in from San Diego for the annual Lunds and Byerly’s BBQ Sauce Samplin’ competition.

Her challenge: grill meats slathered with her fabulous sauce flavors for 1,500 people. My challenge: pick five days of drinks that will please a goddess and match her fantastic array of BBQ sauces.

Top 5 picnic food tips

One of my favorite things to do on a quiet summer evening is head outside for a picnic. It’s a fun change from the normal dinner routine and a great excuse to stay out of the kitchen!

For me, the two keys to a great picnic are a beautiful location, and of course, delicious food. I’m always drawn toward water, so I usually choose somewhere near a lake. I find a flat grassy area and spread out a big blanket because I usually think that’s more fun than sitting at a table.
