Recipes for Labor Day and end of summer celebrations



For many of us, Labor Day is the final break before a long stretch of work and school before the fall's holiday season, and below are some recipes for appetizers and desserts that can kick up a pool party, an informal backyard picnic or a last weekend at the beach. Conference members and chefs contributed them during last year's recipe contest.
