Summer Kitchen Wishlist

July 18, 2012Katie

It’s summer!

And that means grilling out, picnic going, pool parties and lots of cooking!

Here are a few things on my wish list for summer cooking!

Outdoor pizza tiles for the grill! (from Williams Sonoma)

 Corn holders! A must for any summer grilling party (

One of my favorite things to do is dine, or just sip drinks on the patio in the evenings or early mornings.  I absolutely love this patio cart with all it’s wooden trays! (

For going to a picnic? I love this serving bowl with salad servers snapped onto the lid for easy carrying! (

And also from Crate & Barrel – this is SO cool! A Solarlink Radio (from  This is a solar powered MP3 player! It also has a weather channel and AM/FM radio, alarm clock, USB socket to charge your electronics, flashlight and emergency beacon light on it. We need this on our boat and for camping!

I have an affinity for red anything and I love these outdoor melamine plates from Pottery Barn called “The Mona Lisa”! (They remind me of my blog picture dishes too!)



I am dreaming here so just LOOK at this glorious picnic basket!

It holds BBQ tools, salt and pepper, a tablecloth, napkins, dinner and stemware and it is beautiful to look at as well!

And just for laughs.  How about a remote controlled drink server for the pool?

How about you? Have you seen anything way cool for summer fun? Tell me about it in the comments section below!

    Katie!! I love this list, and I would love one of each item, please & thank you. LOL Especially grooving the melamine plates, how pretty!! I tend to collect picnic baskets & tablecloths & stuff from auctions or whatever, but I might actually spring a full "new" price for those dishes!! Enjoy your summertime hostessing! Looks like a grand time! xoxo

    Love your pics. I have been wondering what would happen to my regular pizza stone if we used it on the grill. ????
