What you see here is the view from my parents’ back porch here in Northeast Tennessee. I spent 24 summers enjoying this back yard, taking in the brilliant blue sky and the shade from the beautiful maple trees over the back porch. In high school, my friends would come over for a game of backyard volleyball, followed by some marshmallow roasting in my dad’s fire pit. Through college and to the present day, we have a cookout here for just about every occasion. We are cookout fanatics.
If you are heading to or hosting some cookouts this summer, here are some easy recipe suggestions!
Looking for a fun salsa? Try Becky’s Mango-Jalepeno salsa…what a fun twist on a traditional staple!
Want something more substantial than chips for a side item with your burgers? Rachel’s Cheesy Grilled Foil Potatoes will do the trick!

Happy Cookout Season!!
