As we celebrate our Independence on the 4th of July this weekend....you may be looking for some great recipe ideas for your cookout....look no further!! Southern Living already has a wonderful menu planned out & I must say that the fried pickles look yummo!! (don't knock'em until you've tried'em....they're addictive & I will most definitely be making them) The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays! Meant to be shared with family & friends.....great company, food, drinks, & fireworks!! What more could you ask for?

Wishing Everyone a Happy & Safe 4th of July

Do Your Part

This Gulf oil spill is absolutely terrible and it pains me everyday to see what we are doing to our wildlife & oceans!! But most people like myself think how can I help.....what can I do??? Well Dawn has set up a way for us to give back!! When you purchase a bottle of Dawn and activate your donation online, one dollar will be donated towards the International Bird Rescue Research Center and the Marine Mammal Center. Click Here for more details. So take a stand, activate your donation and join the movement. The wildlife in the Gulf are depending on us!!

You can also get updates on the Gulf Oil Spill by joining their Facebook Page.

Please Do Your Part & Help
