Most people always ask what my favorite recipes are so here is the menu of food items I would prepare for my July 4th celebration.  I would start off by grilling up the chicken wings and preparing the baby back ribs. 

For side dishes I would stick with my favorite recipes and cook up the  baked beans, macaroni and cheese, to serve alongside coleslaw and potato salad...this way I have both hot and cold sides.  

I would go all out with my desserts and prepare more peach cobbler and banana pudding that my guest could possible eat. For drinks I sit out some sweet tea and lemonade.
