June is here and to get excited for Summer, picnics, and barbecues, I've rounded up a few things you can't live without. These items will make cooking, entertaining, drinking, and eating that much more fabulous! To check out my must-haves for this month, click the "Start" button.
The arrival of Summer means the start of cherry season. I plan on making cherry pie, cherry ice cream, cherry cocktails...cherry everything! A cherry pitter  ($12.50) will make my life a whole lot easier. This one is great because it can be used to pit olives as well.
A colorful, printed tablecloth will brighten any deck or patio. I love this vibrant textile print tablecloth  ($59.00 - $79.00) so much I want it in blue and red.
Surprise dad — Father's Day is June 15 — with a new set of grilling tools. This four-piece, stainless set  ($79.95) includes a spatula, a fork, tongs, and a long handled basting brush.
Popsicles are going to be HUGE this summer — Yum and I plan on making a bunch of different kinds! — so pick up a couple of Popsicle molds. This set of six Popsicle molds  ($9.95) has special handles designed to catch dripping juices.
Al Fresco Sausages
No grilling party is complete without an assortment of delicious sausages. Al Fresco 's gourmet chicken sausages ($5.99) — my new fav — are all natural, flavorful, and with 70 percent less fat than regular sausages. From sweet apple to spicy jalapeño, and teriyaki ginger to buffalo style, these sausages  come in over 10 scrumptious varieties.
Bring the colorful mosaics of the Mediterranean into your backyard with this beautiful beverage tub  ($99.95-149.95). More sophisticated than a beverage bucket, this stylish patio piece keeps drinks cold while making you look cool.
