Creamy Red Potato Salad Recipe

by Tara Kuczykowski on July 19, 2013 · 0 comments

Summer cookouts and potato salad were made for each other, don't you think? And right now my favorite is this simple and creamy red potato salad.


Boiling the potatoes, as with any potato salad recipe, is the most time consuming step, so I like to do this the evening before I'm planning to make it. The dressing can be made in under 5 minutes, making this a perfect party side!

Mini No Bake Kool-Aid Pie Recipe

You all know that I typically prefer to cook from scratch whenever possible, but I couldn't resist this Mini No Bake Kool-Aid Pie recipe. It's super simple to make, and tastes just like a light and fluffy lemon cheesecake!


With only four ingredients, Kool-Aid Pie is perfect for upcoming 4th of July cookouts. I recommend topping it with a dollop of homemade whipped cream, but a can of Reddi-wip will work in a pinch too.

Patriotic Trifles in Jars for the Fourth of July

by Tara Kuczykowski on July 3, 2012 · 0 comments

Need a last minute dessert idea for a Fourth of July gathering? Make a basic trifle recipe a little more fun by turning it into patriotic trifles in jars!


It couldn't possibly be any easier to make, requiring only store bought pound cake, blueberries, raspberries, and homemade whipped cream (heavy cream, vanilla extract and sugar). So simple that the kids can help with almost every step!
