On a perfect sunny day in New York City's Central Park, Soledad, her two daughters and their friends gather for a picnic. Rachael's menu is a big hit! Aside from tasty treats, Rachael says there are a few key ingredients to remember when planning a successful picnic.

  • Rachael says to stick to finger foods and avoid dishes that require clumsy silverware.
  • Carry foods in collapsible coolers instead of hefty coolers filled with ice that can leave food soggy.
  • Plan activities to keep kids occupied and adults relaxed.
