Most of us love to have company at the lake, but donít want to spend all day in the kitchen preparing and cleaning up meals. I want you to be able to enjoy your time at the lake, and entertain with style, without having to spend all your time cooking and cleaning. This section is all about being able to serve gourmet quality food without all the fuss. Thanks to my many wonderful lake friends, I have found many shortcuts and easy to make recipes that make this possible.
Sure, anybody can open a bag of chips or a can of nuts, but if you are like me, you want to treat your guests to more special fare. I always want my guests to have great memories of the food we have shared as well as the good times on the lake when they look back on their visits. I think that good food and the lake should go together effortlessly, and have put this section together to help you achieve that.
One thing I notice about most cookbooks Ė the dishes in them require too many ingredients and too much preparation time. All the recipes here (except for the ones in the Rainy Day Options section) have been selected because they are very quick and easy to prepare, using the fewest possible pots and pans and yet they are delicious and fresh. They can also serve large amounts of people. I also have some tips about how to enlist help from family and guests in order to keep your cooking time to a minimum.
I hope you enjoy trying the recipes on this web site, and that you continue having the time of your life at the lake. Hope to see you on the water!
