Picnic Recipe Round Up

It's July Fourth weekend and I know we're all ready for a cookout.  This is my favorite weekend for the year.  (This one is extra special as my lovely cousin, Tessa, is getting married!)  Every year, I go up to Ithaca, New York to see my family and we spend time driving around the finger lakes looking for wineries and farms, checking out the farmers market and wandering through beautiful state parks and of course - grilling, cooking and eating outside as much as possible. Here are some summery recipes you can try this weekend:
