Summer vacation meals should be scrumptious and aesthetically pleasing. Ideally, meal preparation should be an activity to look forward to and share with family and friends.  I have organized this book with the hope that the recipes and techniques will leave more leisure time for those who have large families to feed and entertain.

“Early on I learned to pack light. That being said, a few indispensable tools in the kitchen will make your vacation much more enjoyable. This is neither the time nor place to lug out your mandoline and 18-piece copper pot set. Your children are probably already risking suffocation in the back seat with the dog, the water-skiis, and a case of wine.”

Nancy Jane Davis DeAngelo has been involved in the world of restaurants and catering for the last 25 years. She started her own catering firm in Texas, and then moved the business to the Boston area 14 years ago, where she has served a growing list of private clients and corporations ever since.

Praise for Mildred Davis'
The Room Upstairs

"We defy you to put this one down before you've discovered why Kitten Corwith never left her upstairs room. If there had never been a 'novel of suspense' before, the phrase would have had to be coined to describe this story."

-San Francisco Chronicle

Praise for Katherine Roome's
Letter Of The Law

"Novels that display so high a quality of prose and sensibility are rare these days."

-Washington Post
