Independence Day Recipes and Menu

July Fourth is a day to celebrate America's independence with family, friends and lots of good food. I have posted my favorite menu for the occasion featuring grilled baby back pork ribs with molasses barbecue sauce and, for those who prefer, grilled chicken, either of which can be cooked indoors if the weather does not cooperate. When they arrive, guests can help themselves to a sour cream dip served with vegetable crudités. The side dishes include a delicious pasta and parmesan cheese salad, corn on the cob, baked beans and pepper cabbage salad, a Pennsylvania Dutch favorite. My mother's berry crumb pie, made with fresh blueberries or other fruit in season and served with homemade ice cream, completes the meal. Most of the dishes can be prepared in advance or require minimal last minute effort, as described in the menu preparation notes. For alternate choices, every recipe includes links to similar dishes. I hope you enjoy.

Grilling Recipes

We love to grill, whether for a gathering of friends and family or just for everyday cooking because it is easy, involves less clean-up, is generally healthy and tastes so good. This is a collection of my favorite recipes for the grill, as well as some shared recipes from contributors, including meats, poultry, seafood and vegetables. If you do not have access to an outdoor grill or if the weather does not cooperate with your plans, any of the recipes listed can be made indoors with a grill pan, a broiler or, in some cases, in the oven.
