The best part of summer to me (besides not getting up for kids school) is having friends over for spontaneous casual dinners. I love to sit outside in the evening, not rushing, enjoying the lasting daylight.
So how to make a great dinner with no fuss? The answer is your pantry, freezer and farmer's market.

Simply summer or summer simply -- whichever way you look at it the best way to keep cool is to keep it easy.
With so many families staying home and enjoying their own neighborhoods this year it is easy to gather friends at the last minute for a simple evening dinner. We are blessed in California to have tepid climate all year, but the summer is really what we are about. Dining outside or al fresco, is an easy and magical way to enjoy the long evenings ahead.
