Good morning! I don’t know about you but I cannot wait for the 4th of July celebrations to begin.

I love going to barbeque’s and parties and barbeque food to be more specific. Truthfully, I really like the dips and chips, the salads, and sides and whatever finger food is being served.

I have created a Summer board on Pinterest for all of my favorite summer activities, foods, ideas and more. Just in case I do not have enough ideas from my cookbooks, blog friends, and family recipes for any celebration that I may be having or attending over the next few weeks.

I am curious, when you entertain do you always use “go to” recipes or do you experiment with new ones?

|Caprese Salad from Ina Garten|
I like to use a combination of old and new recipes, sometimes they turn out, sometimes not. I would be lying if I did not say that more often than not my new recipes are desserts; that way I can try new things but send them home with the guests so that they are not laying around here for me to eat them all.

What is your perfect barbeque? What sort of things to you always make or what do you like to see at one that you attend?

I hope that you found a few things here to whet your appetite, if you try any of them let me know. All of these recipes are new to me and were gathered from Country Living, Better Homes and Gardens, Southern Living, Martha Stewart and of course Pinterest and I will be trying a few this week on my guests(the links are below each photo).
