Q It's been a family tradition for many years to have a big Fourth of July cookout. While we enjoy having chicken and corn on the cob, we're looking for ways to make this get-together a little less predictable. Any ideas?

- Dan


It just isn't the Fourth of July without a big family get-together or neighborhood barbecue. It's as much a part of American tradition as fireworks or parades.

Keep the menu exciting and appealing with sizzling Grilled Steak with Tex-Mex Pasta. Packed with flavor, it's a sure-fire winner. Create easy Garden Grilled Kabobs by threading ripe tomatoes, crunchy peppers and other seasonal vegetables on a skewer, and then lightly grill!

For a patriotic dessert, present an effortless yet glorious Grilled Pound Cake topped with strawberries, blueberries, and fresh whipped cream!
