Summer is here, and it’s time to get together with friends and loved ones to eat in the great outdoors. Planning ahead for food that travels well can be difficult – but don’t worry. Here’s a list of 10 things that are easy to make and that travel well. Check them out and make one or two or all of them! Happy Summer!

BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad in a cake pan!

This BBQ Ranch Chicken Layer Salad is the perfect bring-along dish. It travels well, it’s super easy to make and it’s so delicious that everyone is going to be asking you for the recipe.

I LOVE this Chipotle Chicken Salad Wrap. The flavors are smoky, creamy and bright. The fruit gives a great sweetness, and the Fritos add a perfect crunch. This travels best when you separate the filling from the wraps. Before serving, all you have to do is wrap them up tight. Yum.

Curried deviled egg recipe - the perfect spicy twist on a classic.

Deviled eggs are a must-have for any summer get-together, and these Curried Deviled Eggs are some of the best I’ve ever had. The Indian yellow curry gives the perfect flavor with a little punch, and the crispy onions on top adds great texture.  YUM.  🙂

Double chocolate cherry pie dream bar recipe.

You can’t have a get-together without something sweet! I’m a HUGE fan of anything cherry and chocolate together, and these Doubly Chocolate Cherry Pie Bars are always a hit. They’re rich, dense and chewy. Perfection.

italian stromboli recipe

This is The Super Stuffed Stromboli and it’s one of my favorite “sandwiches” ever. It’s as good at room temperature as it is hot. Be sure to let it cool on a rack so the bottom doesn’t get soggy. Then slice it up, layer it between pieces of waxed paper and you’re good to go!

Hearty and healthy quinoa salad recipe.

If you’ve got some health-conscious people to serve, this Quinoa Salad with Black Beans and Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette is just the thing. It’s a cinch to make, it’s full of nothing but nature’s goodness and the zippy lemon garlic dressing is SO good that this salad will be gone in no time.

Dense and chewy oatmeal fudge bar recipe.

Another perfect sweet treat that travels well are these Dense and Chewy Oatmeal Fudge Bars. They couldn’t be easier to make, they’re not too sweet and they have the perfect texture. A guaranteed hit. 🙂

Easy traditional Mexican guacamole recipe.

I’m not sure anyone in the history of the world has ever been criticized for bringing guacamole to any get-together.  It’s America’s chip dip of choice and for a good reason.  It’s SO good, and so good for you.  This is my Traditional Mexican Guacamole, and it’s simply perfect.

best chocolate chip cookie recipe

Last but not least, something else sweet. These are The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever. Trust me, you won’t regret it. 🙂

Now go and enjoy your summer. Eat delicious things and feed people delicious things – it’s what makes life GOOD!
