A lot of us have big cooking plans over this wonderful holiday weekend so I asked on Facebook the other day what Southern Plate recipes folks were planning on making. Below you’ll find their answers along with a few pictures (just to liven things up a bit) to help inspire your menu, should you need just a little inspiration. ~grins~
Just click on the recipe name to go to the tutorial for that recipe and even print it off if you like! Recipe names in red are exclusive to the cookbook. For more great ideas, check out the index of SouthernPlate.com. So far I’ve got over 400 family recipes here with full photographic tutorials of each one.
Have a wonderful 4th of July and don’t forget to show your appreciation for our wonderful armed forces, past and present, who have given so much to ensure we can live in freedom.

We are on vacation in a little Florida town called Dunnellon. We will be visiting an even smaller town called Williston for a smalltown, homegrown 4th of July, complete with a parade, arts and crafts and fireworks. So….no cooking on my part, but I’m sure we will be enjoying the results of someone else’s labors!
Ohhhh, I think they’re equally small towns, lol. I’m just up the road, welcome to N. Central Florida! Great weather this holiday weekend!
