My impromptu go-to is a farmer's market meal - it only takes 45 minutes in the kitchen to make - and a quick trip to a good grocer. Appetizer: - Fresh angel hair pasta tossed with EVOO, fresh cut heirloom tomatoes and basil Entree: - Corn (cut off of grilled cob) mixed with herbs and lime butter sauce - Green beans steamed and then sauteed with Arugula and garlic - Salmon Grilled with lime butter sauce Desert: - Vanilla icecream with fresh berries on top It was inspired from a Gourmet issue last summer, and everyone always raves when i make it.

Pesto is a tasty way to entertain with limited time!

Oooh, I love pesto. When I do a last minute party, I alway start things off by having roasted chick peas and black and green olives on the table with some other nibbles; cheese and crackers and some mixed veggies and ranch dressing and chips because everyone always eats chips. I make a big salad with all the sides, like tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, carrotts, mushrooms, and a few choices of dressing. And I often make pizza. I make my own dough and it's not very difficult and always tastes delicious. Then I'll make two piesl a regular pizza and an onion pizza (which has no tomato sauce). Or else I'll make a pasta casserole of some sort the night before and just pop it in the oven when the guests start to arrive. Some pastries or cookies and a variety of fruits for dessert, and everyone's happy.
