Here, we’ve got all of our favorite warm-weather foods meant for sharing outdoor, especially during the summer months.

So, what IS outdoor entertaining? It’s whatever you want it to be… so long as you’re outdoors. (So it could easily be a backyard barbecue that’s hosted for a crowd. It could also be a casual hang with friends outdoors when the weather is pleasant that involves food.

Some of the kinds of recipes you’ll find here are grilling recipes, make-ahead side dishes, no bake desserts (and some beloved frozen desserts, too), dishes that can withstand heat and be easily transported from one place to another.
