Q I've had a pen pal in England for 40 years. This summer she and her husband are coming to visit me, and I wanted to host an all-American kind of picnic celebration for them and some friends I want them to meet.

- June


How amazing that you've kept up with your pen pal for 40 years! And what a treat that she is coming to visit. We love your idea of a picnic — try the three recipes below for the best of American summertime fare, with a few extra touches to make the meal special.

Start with a classic, Double Onion Hamburgers, grilled alongside Corn-On-the-Cob with Seasoned Butters. For the grand finale, top off your meal with red, white and blue Star Spangled Shortcakes — buttery shortcakes filled with fresh berries and topped with whipped cream.

Have a wonderful time!
