When it comes to summer, I like to keep my menus light and easy. Here are two of my favorites for entertaining. The enchiladas are great for a crowd, and theres nothing more refreshing than this punch on a steamy Miami night.

Heres another keep-cool tip: I always have frozen washcloths for guests at my summer soirees. I soak regular-size washcloths in mint, cucumber, or lime water, then roll them up and freeze them in a zip-top bag. After theyve been chilling out there for an hour or two, I pass them out to my guests. They are a special and refreshing treat!
