Paella is just about the most elegant one-dish meal anywhere, but surprisingly, it is not hard to make. This recipe has seafood and chicken, and those magical saffron threads that provide its fragrant flavor.
A wonderful cold savory soup made with tomatoes, cucumber, green and red bell peppers, and seasonings won't heat up the kitchen on those hot summer days. Garnish with fresh parsley, chives, dollops of sour cream, and toast.
Your guests will love the saucy little sandwiches you create from a pork roast that is seasoned with cayenne, garlic and onions, and then boiled until the meat is falling off the bone. Stir in some barbecue sauce and you have a sensational party dish!
