Good food to BBQ for the fourth of july!?

Okay well the fouth of july is coming up as you guys kno! and me and my baby are having a cookout outside and well baiscly i wanna kno if u guys have any good recipes to do outside on the grill? anything would be fine!! so start throwin some ideas at me guys!! thanx!

When I BBQ, I get very creative.

I make kabobs with sweet italian sausage, sweet onion, sweet green pepper, and just grill it. It is awesome. I also do other kabobs as well such with cubes of steak, onion, tomato, and pineapple grilled. I do fruit kabobs for everyone with watermelon, pineapple, mango, grapes, and blueberries with a yogurt dipping sauce. This is very popular with my guests.

For side dishes.. I like to do a pasta salad with a box of rotini noodles, a can of stewed tomatoes, one bottle zesty italian dressing, one bottle mccormick salad seasoning, mixed together well and refridgerated.. serve cold! Everyone loves it.

I always do mashed potatoes mixed with egg whites and mayo [a unique combination of mashed], grilled corn on the cob, grilled potato wedges, and rolls with cinnamon-butter.

Sometimes I do Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomato Bruschetta as an appetizer as well.

The main meat dishes are always burgers, hot dogs, chicken wings, and steak.. so I give the guests their choice with variety.

How to make brownie pizza and decorate brownies

Your family loves your brownies, but they seem a little too simple to take to a party, right? Here are two great decorating ideas from Betty Crocker Kitchens to add some pizzazz by using creative brownie toppings. Baker and author Liv Hansen shows you how to make festive brownies using frosting and sprinkles, AND how to make a brownie “pizza” with summertime fruit toppings.

How to make brownie pizza and decorate brownies

Decorate Festive Brownies
You can decorate brownies with whatever topping you choose. Liv Hansen uses red, white and blue star sprinkles and a frosting drizzle for a Fourth of July party.

1. Bake brownies in a 13 x 9 baking pan.

2. Soften some vanilla frosting for 15 seconds in the microwave.

3. Take a fork and dip it into the softened frosting then drizzle it across the brownies.

4. Decorate the brownies by sprinkling decorative candy stars over the top of the brownies. The stars will stick to the frosting.

Brownies and Berries Fruit Pizza
When decorating a brownie fruit pizza, you can give this delicious dessert a casual look by randomly sprinkling the fruit on top, or for a more elegant look, arrange the fruit in a pattern. Here, Liv Hansen makes a cream cheese frosting and tops the dessert with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and finshes it with an apple jelly glaze.

1. Bake brownies in a large pizza pan.

2. To make the frosting add some sugar and vanilla to the softened cream cheese and mix until well combined.

3. Use an offset spatula to thinly spread the frosting over the cooled brownie in the pizza pan. If you want brownie pizza crust, leave the edges of the brownie pizza bare.

4. Arrange the fruit of your choice over the frosting.

5. To add a little sweetness and shine soften some fruit jelly of your choice in the microwave for about 30 seconds and use a pastry brush to gently brush it over the fruit.
