I love hearing and of new things to make for friends and family. Especially when a recipe makes you say “what, really?” Those are the things I love to make, try and usually become a staple at my dinner gatherings. Think outside the box, make things your own. That's the best thing about cooking, you can do what you want. Ingredients, presentation, and most of all heart. So, here are some amazing recipes that make you think outside the box that will be perfect for your next summer picnic!
