I don't know about you but June just flew by for us. July is just around the corner and here in the States we are getting ready to celebrate our Independence Day on July 4th. That usually means a lot of outdoor parties.
If you haven't yet visited our newest page about hosting backyard parties, check out Yard Parties here. You'll find some ideas for decorations, a few recipes and some of my favorite party gadgets.
Also, I just received Paula Deen's newsletter and it highlights a bunch of fantastic party recipes that can be found on her site including a cake with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting, Sparkling Sweet Cherry Lemonade and Artichoke Rice Salad with Shrimp. Find these recipes and more here.
