Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day to our fans in the United States. Here are some ideas for your weekend barbecue or potluck.

Cajun Cheeseburger

 The first couple of times I made this recipe it was too salty. I couldn't figure out why until my wife checked the can of Chachere's Creole Spice I was using. It contained potassium chloride as a salt substitute. Checking my other brands in the house, including Paul Prudhomme, McCormick and Spice Hunter, showed that they were salt and potassium free – spice alone.

It just goes to show how important reading food labels can be. Even with more than two decades of obsessing over Nutrition Facts and ingredient lists on packages, I was tripped up.

Red Potato Salad

 The waxy red potatoes hold together better in a salad than russets. Use Yukon Gold potatoes if you don’t want the red skin. The larger red potatoes are easily peeled after boiling – the skins will generally just slip off.

Traditional Carrot Salad

 I love carrot salad and this is the version I grew up with. It's been on my to do list for some time and I am glad I finally got around to it. The great thing is that it's so easy and quick and perfect for your picnic or potluck supper.

Strawberry Shortcake

 The angel food cake is a great substitute for making your own shortcake and has fewer calories and less fat. The best part is that you don't have to spend time cooking the shortcake. While the angel food cake keeps pretty well in the freezer the result is less fluffy (but it is a little more like the texture of shortbread).
