Memorial Day recipes to enjoy this long weekend!


In my years of planning get-togethers, I’ve found that “keeping it simple” is what works best, when putting my list of Memorial Day recipes together. For this holiday, I say we all take some stress out of the equation and opt for small, intimate gatherings to relax and enjoy the long weekend. With that in mind, here are ten recipes that are easy to make, delicious and also very refreshing!

It’s starting to feel like summer so go ahead and enjoy these summer cocktails and mocktails recipes including my strawberry fizz, Frojito; and Agua Fresca. You can also serve ice-cold beer which is always a crowd pleaser.


Prepare a simple menu. Grilling your food is not only easy cleanup but a tradition when it comes to Memorial Day recipes. Some recipes ideas you can make: Shrimp on the Barbie, Grilled Pork Chops, Fritta Burgers and BBQ Chicken Skewers.

Limit desserts. Pick three simple yet satisfying desserts that are light and fruit based. Basil Infused Berries w/Lemon Cream, Grilled Peaches w/Ricotta and Blueberry Popsicles are my go-to’s.
