Independence Day BBQ!

Wednesday is Independence Day, and that means barbecue!  Over the past two years, we've posted a lot of recipes that would make any Fourth of July celebration a hit.

Main Dishes

Treat your friends and family to these delicious burgers or some finger-licking ribs.

Side Dishes

Every BBQ can use some potatoes.  Slice and grill them or wrap them in foil for clean cooking.

Want a green salad?  Try a green salad with strawberries and strawberry vinaigrette or a Caesar salad with homemade dressing.

So summery!!

This corn and black bean salad looks and tastes yummy!

And of course, it's corn season!!

So good!!


Cool off with some homemade lemonade!  Add some strawberry puree for strawberry lemonade.

No lemons?  Brew up some homemade iced tea.


And you can't have a BBQ without a few sweet endings!  How about cherry pie or cherry crumbles?  Do half cherry and half blueberry for a festive red, white, and blue dessert.

You could use star cut-outs for the top crust!!

For the kiddos, bake up some sugar cookies in the shape of stars.  Finish them off with some royal icing or homemade colored sugar.

Dip some strawberries in white chocolate and add some blue accents!

We hope you all have a great Independence Day!  We'd like to say a special thank you to those of you who fight to keep us free!

Since it is a holiday, we'll be taking Wednesday off, but we'll see you on Friday!
