beautiful for 4th of July festivities and patriotic hometown parades;
for sizzling backyard barbecues and picnic tables piled high with platters
of burgers, brats and All-American Fried Chicken! Wear your red, white
and blue proudly this summer and show a little independent spirit by throwing
some Margarita Pork Kabobs on the grill next to the usual cookout fare.
The skies will be filled with flags and fireworks, but you can earn some
of your own oohs and ahs by baking a few batches of colorful
High-Flying Flag cookies and Firecracker cupcakes. Love your country,
be free and indulge your appetite for great eats on Independence Day -
we Americans deserve some fun this summer.
