Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I must think of picnics differently than these folks. A picnic is when you go to a park somewhere away from the kitchen and home and have a great time with family and friends, and everyone brings a covered dish. There is usually a grill for grilling hamburgers and hotdogs, but no appliances for whipping up mayonaise or special sauces. That said, I don't consider many of these "PICNIC" friendly. They would, however, be great for a Cook-out where you had the kitchen essentials

Thanks so much for your comment. These recipes are meant to be "make and take" to a picnic. We're always open to suggestions for different sorts of recipes and collections...what's your favorite picnic recipe?
