Patriotic Moments

July 2nd, 2014

The 4th of July weekend is upon us.  A day to celebrate our off our Stars and Stripes.  Time for parades, picnics and fireworks!

Are you going to bake...order out...or BBQ on the 4th?

Red, White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake Recipe4th of July BBQ & GrillingAmerican Apple Pie - Brown and white sugars, raisins and lemon juice add a wonderful taste and texture to this quintessential apple pie. Be sure to cube or slice the apples uniformly, and, if you like, dot the apples with pats of butter.

Boston Baked Beans - This recipe for Boston baked beans uses navy beans, molasses, brown sugar, and ketchup to create a wonderful old-fashioned baked bean flavor.Chris' Bay Area Burger - These burgers are the hit of my town. All my friends come over every weekend just for these burgers.


Hmmm...what to make, what to make?   I can't decide!    Well, I still have a couple of days to think about it.
