As we celebrate Independence day, many folks will be gathering with family and friends – and food! Today I thought I’d share with you some family favorite recipes that add a fun red, white, and blue theme to your tables.
This is my husband’s favorite dessert of all time. I always make him one on his birthday each year. You can lighten it up by using sugar free pudding and “lite” cool whip.
So much fun and the kids are always impressed! I make these a few days before and store them in the fridge. If I’m taking them places, the handy lids let me just put them in a cooler and folks can grab their own little dessert whenever they want.
This is our family recipe for Red Velvet and I’ve yet to taste it’s equal!
There is nothing like the taste of a Fresh Strawberry Pie in the summertime!
Oh my goodness, you won’t believe how fast these come together!
A little coolness mixed with a little science and you’ll hear OOHS and AAAHS!
No one will believe this is a sugar free drink. There is the natural sugar from the strawberries but that is it!
Boston Butts are on sale this week at my local grocery store so I plan on making a big batch of this barbecue for us to make sandwiches with on the fourth. This is a very moist and tender pulled pork bbq like you’d find in Alabama and many parts of North Carolina.
Because I have never once said “It’s 100 degrees outside! I sure would love to go out there and stand over a fire!”, I make these fall apart ribs in the oven.
This is my personal barbecue sauce recipe.
I could dive into a vat of this stuff and eat my way out. Enough said.
Another cold and refreshing salad!
This is one of my favorite potato salads. Serve warm or cold.
A shortcut version of Mama’s potato salad.
This is a mashed potato salad that is my copycat version of a local bbq places recipe. Did you really need three potato salad recipes? Well folks like all different kinds so I’m covering my bases!
Where liberty dwells, there is my country.
Have a blessed Independence Day!
