I enjoy our warm evenings in the summer time, I really do!  We are fortunate enough in Phoenix to be able to entertain outdoors almost year-round – almost – thankfully monsoon season has arrived which has brought temps down, phew! So why not take your entertaining outside?

With hosting lots of friends throughout the years, I feel like I have the right kind of recipe for a great evening.

Grilled food, fun games, and easy dessert or cold snack you can pass out to kiddos and adults. Here are a few new products to add to your next  summer outdoor party – so call up some friends and fire up the grill!

I love passing out easy treats without having to worry about scooping or plates, they are just ready to enjoy!

Froozer will be parent approved for the kiddos – and the grown ups will like them too! They are frozen snacks made with 100% fruit with no added sugar, juice concentrate. No preservatives, non-GMO and gluten-free and dairy-free you are just getting fruit mixture in the purest form that are flash-frozen. The company is based in Colorado and produced in Oregon! They are also just 35-40 calories. Find where to buy here and print a coupon here.

Oprah's new cooking book on kitchen counter top

One of my girlfriends loves Oprah so much she gave me the Oprah DVD set to borrow when I went through a breakup – she thought Oprah would sooth my soul, haha! Even though that was over a decade ago I know how Oprah fans are die hard. So if you love Oprah Winfrey, then you need to add this book to your Oprah collection. Food, Health and Happiness by Oprah Winfrey is filled with personal essays and behind-the-scenes look into the life and kitchen of Oprah will definitely be a good guide for whipping things up in the kitchen – or on the outdoor grill. And if you’re hoping to get healthier, these are Oprah’s favorite recipes.

The photos are so beautiful – my fav shot is of her in a garden – of course! I love that the book is more than recipes.

And while you’re cooking, check out PAM’s new cooking spray that is a pump so you can control how much you use. Our cupboard is full of every type of PAM spray! This non-aerosol cooking spray can help you reduce the amount of fat and calories – only 1g of fat and 10 calories per serving – and of course they are non-stick and have no artificial colors or flavors or preservatives.

And since summertime is about grilling – I love it because I get a break from the kitchen, and it’s Benjamin’s time to grab all his grilling accessories, turn on the grill and make dinner! There’s nothing like a new set of grilling tools to encourage him to pick up some meat and get creative. This set includes a basting brush, tongs and 4-in-1 spatula which you can use for a turner, meat tenderizer and bottle opener and knife edge! It’s like a Swiss army knife of BBQ tools and this set is only $19.99 and only available at True Value.

Cheers to bring entertaining outdoors!
