I’m always happy to talk about food and parties, and how I approach the two on a daily basis. Particularly when I’m chatting with the creative crew from Martha Stewart Radio’s Morning Living Show, Betsy Karetnick and Brian Kelsey. On every morning on Sirius XM Channel 110 from 7:00-11:00am, Betsy and Brian focus on cooking, home improvement, gardening and entertaining.
Early today, they invited me to stop in to their “Summer Kick Off” party to discuss tips for easy summer entertaining. For discussion, I brought along some of my summer-inspired foods like Summer Corn Soup; Caprese Salad with heirloom tomatoes, creamy mozzarella cheese and fresh basil; and a grilled lemon chicken served with roasted garden vegetables. All of these foods are easily made at home, taking advantage of the season’s best produce and herbs.
