Cooking With Caitlin: Pull together a perfect Cincinnati picnic

CINCINNATI - WCPO is pleased to bring you food blogger Caitlin MacEachen Steininger as a contributor. She has been tickling the food fancy of her family and friends since third grade. Check back next Monday for a new recipe!

Mark the middle of your summer break with a super fresh picnic in the Cincinnati sun. There are so many excellent areas to throw down a blanket for lunch, but our favorite perch in the city is Serpentine Wall. As a family we take turns picking the tallest step, the best view, the perfect curve along the water’s edge. We fill our bellies with the menu below. And then, we wrap our adventure with some serious splashing at Concourse Fountain.

Pull together the recipes here for an outdoor date with your own family: 

1. Almond Butter + Berry Sandwiches

2. Cincinnati Popcorn

3. Pesto-Roasted Chickpeas

WCPO Insiders can get recipes for all three dishes. Plus, feast your eyes on the photos of these Porkopolis picnic delicacies.
