Ziploc & The Food Network’s Robin Miller Review

Memorial Day is quickly approaching and that means Summer and entertaining. Robin Miller, Food Network contributor, cookbook author, nutritionist, and mom, has partnered with Ziploc to make those summer celebrations exciting while saving money, time and effort!

While we use our grill all year long, we love creative cuisine and Miller offers hassle-free solutions to keep our summer easy! We love picnics and incorporating them with our local amusement park, zoo or hike makes it even more delightful.  Miller offers a Pack-It Tip:


For no-fuss, budget-friendly outdoor meals and snacks, try packing a picnic for the family instead of purchasing expensive theme-park meals. Make cleaning up a cinch by storing tableware, tongs and serving spoons in Ziploc Brand Slider Storage and Freezer Bags with the SmartZip Seal for easy access. Prepare for any spills or mishaps by pre-moistening paper towels and storing them in Ziploc Brand Freezer Bags. Reserve the bags to bring the dirty items home so you can pop them straight into the sink or dishwasher.

Here are more great tips from Ziploc and Robin Miller:

Prep It, Store It, Take It:
Prep ahead for barbeques or block parties and make your side dishes and desserts days in advance. Seal in freshness by storing treats in Ziploc® Brand Containers with the Smart Snap™ Seal, which can go from the refrigerator to the cooler to the party with ease. Serve crowd-pleasing savory options like Miller’s spiral pasta with pesto, sundried tomatoes, and pine nuts or homemade dips served with chips and pita wedges or sweets like cookies, brownies and bars.
Dip It:
For a fun spin on outdoor entertaining, create a dipping station so guests can put their personal twist on grilled favorites. Get creative by making several unique dips and serve them with grilled staples like fish, vegetables or meat. Try Miller’s grilled beef kebab recipe with three complimentary dips: chipotle-lime mayo, wasabi soy sauce, and roasted red pepper. To offer your guests even more variety, try making the kebabs with beef, chicken, shrimp or Portobello mushrooms.
Cool It:
With a little planning, the whole family can enjoy nutritious foods throughout the day while enjoying outdoor activities. Before heading out to campgrounds, the beach or the park, pack your cooler with fresh treats for the family. Make cooler space count by organizing like-items together, such as sandwiches on the left and fruits and veggies on the right to maximize space and make finding treats a snap. Finally, add in sunscreen and a spray bottle filled with water. They’ll feel refreshing to the skin and keep the whole family sunburn-free and feeling cool on a warm day.
