If summer entertaining in on the agenda, try these fun ideas Matt Armendariz's new cookbook, On A Stick! (2011 Quirk Books). From berry cubes for cocktails, easy appetizers, and kid-friendly desserts, there's something for everyone. Instead of messy dips and frozen hors d'oeuvres, make your own easy-to-eat party fare. We love the coconut shrimp with mango salsa and cocktail cubes (pictured above).
