Wait until you try this exceptional Linguine with Smoked Salmon dish!
Whenever I smoke salmon, this is what my husband always wants me to make. This is also a great company pasta. It is so simple to make that it is so good that it is unbelievable! You must make this excellent pasta dish.
Favorite Fresh Fruit Salad
This is my very favorite fresh fruit salad. It is very refreshing and also low in calories. I use whatever fresh fruit is in season when making this salad. The banana dressing is very light and compliments the fruit. You will never want to make a “yucky” canned fruit salad again!
Parmesan Pepper Bread
This Parmesan Pepper Bread recipe is outstanding and everyone loves it! Parmesan cheese and black pepper give this bread a delicious and distinguished flavor.
Panna Cotta literally translates as “cooked cream” in Italian. Panna Cotta is the perfect dessert, whether you’re throwing a fancy party or a small one! These softly set and creamy Italian puddings are so silky-smooth they slip down beautifully at the end of a meal. Perfect served with fresh berries or fruits according to the season. They are also perfect for dinner parties because they can be made a day or two in advance and kept refrigerated until ready to be served.

Picnic Safety Tips – There is nothing more American than the picnic. Picnics can take on many forms, such as the community picnic, friends and neighbors, tailgate parties, or ball games. There is also one sure thing at every picnic-lots of good food. The important point is to have safe and healthy food, not food that can cause food borne illness. Always prepare and store food properly.
Summer Safety Tips – Summer is the time for barbecues and picnics. The biggest party crasher at summer picnic and buffets is food borne bacteria. You can not see them and you can not taste them, but you sure can feel them if illness occurs hours or days later.
