There is nothing better than a Summer party, but if you feel overworked as the host, then that’s no fun at all! Don’t sweat it this year—use our easy 4th of July recipes and you will remember the party fondly, instead of recalling how you nearly lost your mind hosting it!

Who doesn’t have fond memories of Kool-Aid? I even remember using it to dye my hair in grade school! My mom made my brother and I drink skim milk at dinner, but whenever I went to a friend’s house in Summertime, I looked forward to a tall glass of Kool-aid…even if it gave us all a bright red mouth!

Kool-Aid 4th of July Pie:  Try this easy patriotic pie with strawberry Kool-aid and strawberry Cool Whip!

Just like Kool-Aid, I remember the days when a tray of Rice Krispie treats brought in for a student’s birthday were the ultimate in dessert treats. Who can resist a homemade Rice Krispie treat? That’s right, no one! Try the following recipe out for your holiday spread.
