It’s summertime and entertaining is easy.

 

Or at least it’s supposed to be.

This week’s features center around summer foods and entertaining.

I’m drooling over all these delicious recipes for sure.

 

Let’s see who’s been extraordinary this week!

Hummus is great anytime of the year, but I especially enjoy it with all the fresh veggies we get from the
farmers’ markets in the summer.  Leslie has a different twist to hers and a surprise ingredient!

 I love the texture of seagrass.  Suzanne uses it beautifully to create a fresh summery feeling
for summer entertaining.  The glasses in the basket make a sweet silverware holder, too.
