For a unique and tasty side dish to bring to your Fourth of July barbecue, check out this Seven Layer Salad recipe.
The Fourth of July is my favorite time of year for several specific reasons. For one thing, no ski parkas.

Rather, the fouth of July consists of folks simply enjoying time together-usually at outdoor barbecues, with all the fixings. Finally, the Danvers Family Festival has a long history of providing local families with a solid week of fun-filled events leading up to the big finale at Plains Park. The fact that the festivities culminate in a patriotic, awe-inspiring fireworks display …
