Jalapeno Popper Dip (Lee Bowman, Senior Project Manager)
A blend of rich cream cheese, spicy diced jalapeños and sharp cheddar topped with crispy Panko bread crumbs – a cookout favorite!
Corn and Avocado Salsa (Amy Kingrea, Project Coordinator)
The perfect summer salad filled with veggies and totally customizable to your preferences. I use fresh corn off the cob whenever possible for a fresh summer zing. Serve with crisp tortilla chips or as a stand-alone dish!

Hearty yet refreshing side perfect for picnics!
Amazing Asian Ramen Salad (Tina Feole, Community Representative)
An easy dish to whip up in a hurry that pairs Asian flavors with a surprising crunch.
My Mother’s Brisket (Susan Reynolds, Broker Liaison)
Best prepared a day or two ahead of schedule and gently reheated before your cookout.
Tequila-Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs (Lee Bowman, Senior Project Manager)
The quintessential cookout classic with a little extra zest.
Red, White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake (Tabitha Spencer, Marketing Manager)
Spectacular summer dessert topped with tons of delicious fresh fruit.
Don’t bother with the oven in the summer heat! This easy, tasty dessert pairs the American classic – ice cream – with delicious toppings and a crunch.
