Isn't summer one of the best seasons? It's not just the great weather, but it's the attitude people have. Everyone seems happier. You can be outside a lot more, and the options for entertaining are more plentiful. There are BBQs and picnics and outdoor parties galore.
I've always thought that food tastes the best when you have good company. For me, cooking is the most fun when you can share it with friends and family. So on a bright summer afternoon, I gathered with some friends and fellow food bloggers to enjoy a multi-course meal near the beach, with each of us bringing a dish to share.
