From main dishes to desserts, you’re sure to find plenty of salivation picnic table inspiration below!

smoked-pork-shoulder-brooklyn-supperBrooklyn Supper – Smoked pork shoulder with molasses BBQ sauce

If you have the means (meaning a charcoal grill, a little space, and neighbors who don’t mind some smoke), this is a good starter recipe. Once you have the basics down, experiment with flavors. The recipe yielded completely delicious hickory-infused pork.
Guacamole-kale-foodie-fiascoFoodie Fiasco – Kale Guacamole

I adore guacamole. Give me a tub and I’ve got dinner. Sometimes I like to have a little chip with my dip, but it’s honestly just to look civilized.


potatosaladfinal-30-handmade-days30 Handmade Days – Mom’s Classic Potato Salad

I struggle with side dishes. Other than salad or bread, I’m stumped for what side to pair with what dish. My Mom made a simple but super good potato salad growing up. It’s the one that I now make for my family. 

4-ingredient-chicken-marinade-NoBiggie.net_No Biggie – The best 4 ingredient chicken marinade

Our friends shared this quick marinade with us last Summer, and I have to say…we love it! It is now my go to marinade when it comes to chicken.


sriracha-pop-prudent-babyPretty Prudent – Mango Sriracha Popsicles

YES! You can make a sriracha popsicle. In the great history of paletas, mixing spicy and sweet is a grand tradition.


cherry-chipotle-ribs-presleys-pantryPresley’s Pantry – Cherry Chipotle Pork Ribs

Here is my video showing you exactly how I made my delicious cherry chipotle ribs, from start to finish, using the 2-2-1 method. Oh and can I just say they were the best darn ribs I ever had! Toot, toot (my own horn.)

pasta-salad-idea-roomThe Ideal Room – Pasta Salad (in a jar!)

The BBQ season is here!  And that means warm summer nights and picnics with delicious food.  One of our favorite BBQ dishes is this Pasta Salad.

Mocha-Mud-Pie-Dessert-crazy-for-crustCrazy for Crust – No Bake Mocha Mud Pie

Call it a chocolate delight, a lush dessert, or a chocolate lasagna; whatever it is it’s absolutely delicious.


Best-Grilled-CheeseburgerTidy Mom – Black Pepper Encrusted Provolone Cheeseburger

I made peppercorn encrusted burgers topped with provolone cheese and they were fantastic! Plank grilling will definitely happen more at our house!


death-chocolate-baby-gizmoBaby Gizmo – Death by Chocolate M&M Magic Bars

These ooey-gooey bars are super easy to make and so deliciously fabulous that I totally recommend you whip up a batch today. Or tomorrow. Or whenever you need something rich and delicious.
