4th of July Recipe Contest!

28 June 2011 9 Comments

The 4th of July is coming up FAST! Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays. Growing up, there was always a party to attend. As day turned to night and the fireworks went off illuminating the dark sky I always felt so proud to be an American.

A big part of celebrations in my families revolves around the food. The 4th of July is no exception. Picnics and potlucks overflow with homemade baked treats, barbecue, salad that seem a lot healthier than they are…yum!

Breen Inkman My favorite summertime holiday dessert recipe is one my Grandmother ALWAYS made for us when I was a child! It’s perfect for summer; it’s part creamy, part frozen, part chocolate, & part divinely decadent!! 1lb lorna doone or other shortbread cookie(crush); 1/2cup margarine (melted); 2pt butter pecan ice cream (softened); 3oz instant vanilla pudding; 8 oz cool whip; 4 candy bars(heath bars or skor bars crushed).

Mix cookie crumbs and margarine together and press in bottom of 13×9 cake pan. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Cool. Mix ice cream and pudding mix together & pour over crust. Spread cool whip on top. Sprinkle with crushed candy bars. Freeze until ready to serve, but set out at room temp for about 15 minutes before cutting into squares & plating.

**TIP: Use a festive serving pan, such as a red fluted-edge stoneware pan and you can serve straight from the pan!**

We hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! The winning recipe is from

Toni Lardizabal Keltner “Land of the Free” Spaghetti Salad: 4 cups of cooked spaghetti, 3-4 cups of chopped vegetables (I use tomatoes, purple onions, cucumbers and black olives), 1 cup Italian dressing and 4 tablespoons of McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning. Mix… ingredients well and refrigerate before serving. This is a great summertime salad that I grew up with and it’s still a favorite of mine! I’ve also bought a Wal-Mart or Sam’s baked chicken, shredded the chicken and then added it to the salad. Very yummy!

The winning recipe is from Christina Brundick! Christina, please email moms@newbornfree.com. Thank you for your great submissions, everyone!

    With a peanut or tree nut allergy, even a tiny amount may cause an allergic reaction in some people. Some places you find nuts, like nut butters and nut breads, are not surprising. Others — like sauces and gravies — may be..

    Rincon BeachYou may find a dovolená spot that offers beachcombing, hiking, picnicking,
    snorkeling and its crystal-clear waters. Some of you will certainly get
    a correct choice. The movie is scheduled to start on the lessons and skills they will be treated with other beautiful sceneries alongside as well.
