A wise man once said “It’s a smile, it’s a kiss, it’s a sip of wine … it’s summertime!”. Summer entertaining is one of my favorite times to entertain for several reasons.

The weather is fabulous and the meals are lighter. I love having a glass of Sauvignon blanc while grilling on my deck or making a nice fresh salad with herbs from my garden. This summer I have made it a point to shop with more local farmers and order more fresh fruits and vegetables.

You are going to be so surprised how simple these Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings is to create and how delicious it is. I love making this dish after a great BBQ and it’s my go-to potluck recipe. It is rich and flavorful. In place of 7up, you can also use sodas like ginger ale, sprite, or Mountain Dew.
