Now that spring has found its way to New York City, grab a blanket, a basket, and a bottle of sunscreen and head out to the park for a lunchtime picnic. Bon Appétit has some great picnic recipes for a cool and casual meal.

Towels? Sunscreen? Pop culture magazines?

And so my summer ritual with my sister begins – we treasure our opportunities to go to Jones Beach each weekend. We wake up somewhat early (so we can beat those crazy crowds), pack our beach bags, pick up some bagels and coffee, and head south on Wantagh Parkway. Just as we had spent so many summer days on the beach growing up in Chicago, we now made it a special part of our adult lives on the East Coast.
