    One-at-a-time cocktails kill a summer party. Think pitchers!

    We suggest starting with six baking sheets. Cover each with tortilla chips. Now start piling on toppings. Sausage on one, browned ground beef on another, thinly sliced steak on a third, maybe some barbecue chicken on another, and so on.

    The flavors of ceviche and shrimp cocktail, together at last

    The beauty of this dish is that it is loaded with flavor, impressive to serve and has to be made in advance (making it a great choice for a low-maintenance dinner party). For a festive appetizer, serve in margarita or martini glasses rimmed with a mixture of kosher salt, lime zest and smoked paprika, then serve with plantain chips and/or saltine crackers. It's as close to a tropical vacation as you can get without leaving your backyard.

    Quesadillas make quick meal of heap of veggies, or leftovers

    We'll even throw the occasional leftover cooked grain into a quesadilla. Cooked quinoa or rice go great with canned beans and some chopped drained tomatoes. But whatever you do, don't forget the cheese. It is the glue that holds this delicious dish together. We like cheddar, but Jack or Gouda are nice, too.

    “It’s like if you screw up in life, pick it up like you meant to do that,” Rippinger says as she seamlessly whips the hoop from near her feet to her waist as if it’s completely weightless and just another appendage on her body.
