Let’s Get The Picnic Started!
Appetizer ~ Deviled Eggs
The real secret to perfect deviled eggs is in the filling. It doesn’t matter about anything else if the filling is too thin and can’t stand up to the egg white. Ya gotta give that filling some substance. Discover my secret ingredient that works like a charm!
Beverage ~ Blueberry Sriracha Margarita
Talk about Red, White and Blue! You’ve got it all in this Blueberry Sriracha Margarita. It’s cool, yet spicy…fruity, yet sassy…blue, yet red. Heck, it’s just lip-smacking good. This will definitely be your favorite patriotic drink!
Main Dish ~ Grilled Pork Tenderloin
There’s nothing quite as delicious as pork tenderloin on the grill (ad). It’s tender, flavorful, and sassy when drizzled with my chimichurri sauce. Your family will oooh and ahhhh when you serve this special main dish.
Side ~ Sheet Pan Taters
Need a savory side in a jiffy? Sheet Pan Taters really pack a punch! Red-skin potatoes are dusted with seasonings and olive oil, then baked until golden brown and tender. What could be easier than that?
Side ~ Strawberry Pecan Salad
When I think of food that screams ‘deliciousness’, I think of Strawberry Pecan Salad. The coolness of the berries, feta, and mixed greens compliments many meals. Add pecans for crunch, and you’ve got the perfect treat!

With only 5 ingredients, Cheesy Skillet Cornbread can be on your table in 30 minutes! Now, that’s something to get excited about!
- 4 cups White Lily self-rising buttermilk cornmeal mix (ad)
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 16 oz. carton sour cream
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 16 oz. pkg. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Add 1 Tbsp. butter to 12″ cast iron skillet (ad) and place in oven for 2 minutes.
- Take skillet out of oven and swirl melted butter around to coat the pan.
- In a mixer, beat eggs, then add cornmeal mix, sour cream, milk, and butter. Mix well.
- Pour 1/2 of batter into skillet. Sprinkle shredded cheddar on top of batter. Pour rest of batter on top of cheese.
- Bake 30 minutes at 425 degrees until golden brown.
The batter will be stiff. A spatula works well when spreading it in the skillet.
For spicier cornbread, add extra ingredients to the batter before laying in skillet such as chopped onions, green chiles, or jalapeños.
