With life opening up, more of us are planning on hosting and visiting family and friends this summer — but it’s not a complete return to “normal”. In this episode, we share our favorite summer entertaining tips and tricks that still stand, and also talk about the ways in which we’re shifting our summer entertaining habits for a post-Covid world.
The Summer of Joy and Reconnection
We’re so hungry to get together with friends and family this summer that we refuse to stress about what we’re serving or how to be a perfect host. We’re having picnics, BBQs, and ordering impromptu porch pizzas so that we can connect with all the folks we’ve missed since Covid restrictions began over a year ago, and we hope to inspire those of you who feel safe enough to do the same.
Here are links mentioned in this week’s episode:
- Sheet Pan Chicken Shawarma
- Chopped Mediterranean Salad
- Rice and Lentil Pilaf
- BBQ Chicken Sandwiches – from the slow cooker!
- Grilled pizza
- A handful of batch cocktail recipes from our friend Maggie Hoffman
- Grilled Chicken Salad
- Chopped Italian Salad

Light Ice Cream That’s Heavy on Flavor
Summer is here and we are whipping up ice cream desserts — from homemade ice cream cakes to shakes and floats — with our pints of Enlightened Light Ice Cream. They come in classic flavors like Vanilla Bean and Mint Chip, as well as impossibly indulgent flavors that pack in loads of mix-ins and swirls, like Brownies & Cookie Dough and Caramel Fudge Pretzel. Major scoopability and tons of dreamy possibility.
