Fourth of July Round-Up

To make things easier for you to find, here is a round up of recipes for your Independence Day celebration.

Main Course

Chicken Croquettes - How easy would these be to whip up for lunch while you're trying to get your dinner items together?

Baby Back Barbeque Ribs - Tender, moist, lip smacking good ribs everyone will remember.  Or just make a batch of the barbeque sauce for your favorite hamburgers or grilled chicken.

Grilled Salmon topped with Cilantro Cream Sauce - Simple, easy and if you're lucky, you'll get told you outdid yourself.


Macaroni Salad - No picnic is complete without macaroni salad, and this one is full of in season vegetables.

Tomato Peach Salad - Tangy, sweet, cool and yummy.  Serve this at your Fourth of July cookout and be prepared to hand out the recipe several times.  (Or smile nicely and say it's a family secret.)


Simple Lemonade - Cool off with a refreshing glass of lemonade made with real lemon juice instead of that powdered stuff.

The Day After

Watermelon Shrimp Salad - You're tired, hot, and you have lots of leftovers.  What better way to avoid heating up the kitchen, make a fast meal, and use up some of that watermelon?  Serve with some crusty bread and a nice cold beer.


  1. All of your recipes are so yummy looking! I'd love for you to share one or more of your dishes on my linky party, Southern's going on right now. Hope to see you there!
    P.S. so sorry to hear about your power...glad it's back now.
