The 4th of July! 1

July4thIt is Independence Day! We hope your day is filled with parades, great food, musics and beautiful fireworks lighting up the night sky. If you need to travel, please travel safely. If you are lighting fireworks, please have some safety precautions for you and your loved ones. Your safety is extremely critical.

Our team is super excited about the holiday. We have all been planning what to serve at our respective BBQ’s. If you are at a loss for what to serve or take to a pot luck, we have some great recipes for you to try.

Finished Ernie's Bowtie Pasta Salad

Ranch Bowtie Pasta Salad

One of our staff’s all time favorites is the Ranch Bowtie Pasta Salad. I don’t know who scrambles to get to dish up first: the kids or the adults. In the end it doesn’t matter because it is always in demand. Even if you make more than you think you will need, there won’t be any left-overs. I promise.

Artichoke Spinach Dip

Artichoke Spinach Dip

Another favorite is the Artichoke and Spinach Dip. It goes well with everything from chips to bread to rolls. Tonya loves to get the festive red, white and blue corn tortilla chips. Tina adores a crisp baguette. I don’t really care how I eat it so long as there is some left for me! It is super yummy and fast to make. You won’t believe it!

Fruit Punch. Doesn't that look delectable?

Fruit Punch. Doesn’t that look delectable?

If you are looking for a great beverage to quench the thirst and put the summer heat at bay, one of my favorite drinks is our Summer Fruit Punch! I am fond of it because it looks great and while it looks like you have slaved half the day preparing for it, it is a cinch to put together. I love it because it is beautiful to look at and I don’t have to sacrifice time away from the festivities.


What types of things do you like to make and serve at your Independence Day get together? We want to know!

I'm a twenty something happy, animal loving, curious experimenter. I love reaching back into history and trying old recipes for cosmetics or foods. I'm constantly asking "Why?" My curiosity has me trying new things. I love taking walks with my dog as well as staying at home to cuddle with the dog and my cats.
