We will be hosting about 12-14 people at our home after our daughters baptism in late July. Living in Sacramento means that it can easily be 100+ degrees that time of year and I need some ideas for brunch that a) can be prepped the day before and b) would not necessarily require heating up the stove and hence house. My side of the family is Italian and hence big eaters and for the most part, everyone is rather adventurous food-wise. The only thing I will be doing for sure will be Ina Garten's roasted shrip and orzo pasta salad as that's always gone over well at potlucks and such. Any other ideas (including desert-I was thinking cupcakes or lemon bars) that fellow 'hounds have is much appreciated. Thank you!
