Whether you are hosting a party or relaxing with your family, these fresh summer recipes will keep the 4th of July spirit alive and well in your own home.
Melon Prosciutto Skewers
An elegant take on finger food, these skewers up the ante on the classic pairing of melon and prosciutto with the addition of mozzarella and a balsamic glaze.
Grilled Vidalia Onion Cheeseburger
There are few things more American, or more satisfying, than a juicy hamburger. Bobby Flay takes it up a few notches with two types of cheese, grilled Vidalia Onions and a homemade horseradish mustard.
You can’t go wrong with the classic American Flag cake, but if you want to surprise your family and/or guests with an elevated dessert, look no farther than the pavlova. Crispy on the outside, with a sweet marshmallow-y center, the pavlova is a perfect base for a heaping pile of vanilla cream and fresh berries.
