4th of July Grilling and Entertaining Tips with Chef Jamie Gwen

OK, chef’s tip – you want multiple bursts of flavor at your July 4th gathering and it’s easy to do with Bush's Baked Beans. Whether Original, Brown Sugar Hickory or any other flavor, they pair perfectly with hot dogs and hamburgers, or grilled chicken and steaks. For my 4th of July cookout, I like to make Baked Beans with burnt ends and bacon – you can buy pre-made burnt ends or smoke them yourself. The savory sweetness of the Baked Beans enhances the smoky flavors of the dish. Bush’s Zero Sugar Added Baked Beans are another great option, featuring the iconic flavor you love, without the added sugar. Whether you’re serving them directly out of the can or adding your own spin on flavors – Bush’s Baked Beans are incredibly versatile and can enhance any 4th of July menu. Click here to learn more.

love summer salads and this is my Greek Orzo Salad made with Kalamata Olives. I always add Pearls Specialties Olives to mine because I can count on the quality. Each olive is hand-picked and adds flavor to any meal. (Pearls has a wide variety) - From traditional sliced black olives to a full line of imported Specialties including gourmet olives stuffed with garlic or blue cheese and Kalamatas. And between now and July 31, you can go to olives.com to enter to win a 10-day vacation including roundtrip airfare and hotel accommodations for two to Greece, the home of Pearls Specialties Olives.

When I think of summer, I am the girl at the grill and there's one common ingredient that makes those grilled meals amazing - cheese! I look for organic dairy products with cleaner, simpler labels – such as Organic Valley. Their cheeses are natural - from pasture-raised organic dairy cows that are raised without antibiotics, synthetic hormones, or harsh pesticides. They have award-winning American Cheese and recently introduced Flavor Favorites that include Spicy and Smoky Cheddars – and all of these are great on burgers. Or try their shredded Italian Herb Mozzarella on grilled pizza. I love that Organic Valley is on a mission to save small organic family farms. Click here to learn more.
