The 10 Entertaining Recipes You Loved This Month

June 21, 2014

Summer lends itself to any and every type of party, and accommodates any and every type of host: Want to smoke an entire pork shoulder, fuss over miniature tartlets, and hand-letter individual placecards? Go for it. Want to toss some pasta in a bowl, cook your meat while you sleep, and then drizzle butter over berries and call it dessert? Your guests will be just as happy, and you'll have more time to enjoy your Tom Collins.
