There are plenty of ways to dress up our favorite finger food, the deviled egg. Check out more ideas here »
To save time, prepare the macaroni and cheese the day before and just pop it in the oven about 45 minutes before you’re ready to eat. The okra soup, root beer cake, and tea can be made a day ahead of time as well.
All this fried food weighing you down? Lighten up the fare with a collard greens salad instead of stewed cabbage and collards, or try one of our 20 refreshing summertime salads.
