Is your grill sizzling? Hamburgers prepped and ready? Potato salad in the fridge? The Fourth of July when All-American favorites rule the picnic table is coming fast—and this year we get a whole weekend to celebrate. Yay! This is Judith D. posting and I can’t wait! I love summer food, ripe berries and fresh salads, grilled chops and kabobs, shortcakes and pie. Are you planning your menu and looking forward to gathering outside on a lazy Saturday afternoon with family and friends? We’ve got ideas for you! Check the Allrecipes 4th of July recipe collection with more than 1,000 recipes, 630 Side Dishes and 610 Desserts. Plenty of people pleasers here! 
 
Our community loves this holiday! We’ve even got red, white and blue Patriotic Recipes! Check out Red, White and Blue Slaw Salad, or All-American Strawberry Pie. Have you tried Red, White and Blue Burgers? Delish! 
 
For pre-holiday fun, we thought we’d find out what our Allrecipes community is cooking and eating. We all love tried and true favorites, and July 4th is the perfect holiday to celebrate with traditional American recipes. Here’s what’s cooking as of 4PM on Thursday afternoon (West Coast time) based on the number of page views for each recipe. Does your family have a favorite on the list? Want to guess what will end up being the most popular?

Thanks for the tremendous job you and your coworkers do every day! Sorry you've had to deal with the fire and I'm hoping that you are all having a really great Independence Day. Enjoy your evening and don't think of us until Monday...unless it's your holiday to work.

I just wanted to comment on the Old Boy's strawberry pie..Could not find a place to comment on the recipe site. Stawberries are very bland in a pie, so I used one cup of blackberries..with the strawberries, also one of the cups of strawberries, I crushed and mixed with the balance of the flour sugar mixture..to add some zip too it, I addes lemon zest. That is a real boost to this pie.

About Me
Allrecipes.com is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, Allrecipes.com is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at m.allrecipes.com.
