When you pack your picnic basket and head to the beach this summer, skip the standard sandwiches and whet your appetite with some seaside sensations!

Because it can be served cold as well as warm, Oven-Fried Picnic Chicken is a hearty take-along entree that's great for get-togethers all season long.

Beat the summer heat with a cold soup such as Shrimp Gazpacho, featuring the fresh flavors of shrimp, tomatoes, cucumbers and more.

When having fun in the sun, it's best to skip chocolate desserts that can melt. Instead, make a batch of crowd-pleasing Almond-Coconut Lemon Bars.
