4th of July Party Food Suggestions Recipe
Being a US citizen for a few years now, I always make sure we have a special celebration on July 4th! Not only am I proud to be an American, but the 4th of July is also a perfect opportunity to gather our loved ones and prepare a barbecue feast. Now that we're finally back from our European trip, I've put together a list of our  favorite recipes for a get-together - read on to find out what my favorites are. I might need a few days to catch up with the jet lag and will be back with new videos and recipes next week.

In the meantime, if you live in the Bay Area, I'm so excited to meet you at Barnes and Noble this Saturday. Be sure to stop by Barnes and Noble Blossom Hill, 5353 Almaden Expressway, Building B in San Jose, California. I'll be doing a cooking demo, followed by a book signing, on July 5th at noon.

Easy Barbecue Chicken Recipe for July 4th Recipe

I have been grilling a lot of poultry lately on the wonderful barbecue grill we purchased this past Memorial Day weekend. I’ve made tandoori chicken and soy sauce quail and they both turned out lovely. I thought it was time to experiment a bit and create a new recipe for the upcoming July 4th weekend. I had a jar of delicious chokecherry jelly that Daddy's friends from Minnesota gave us, and I decided to make a marinade and glaze out of it. The jelly imparts a tangy sweet flavor to the chicken that is perfect for a hot summer day.

If you're having a barbecue this July 4th weekend, give this grilled chicken recipe a try. It's to die for! For more grilling recipes, check out Mark Bittman's latest post, 101 Fast Recipes for Grilling.
