10 Memorial Day Party Ideas.
Perhaps one of my favorite things to make, this tastes better than any bottled BBQ sauce I’ve found. It’s possibilities or endless. And you can also just eat it off a spoon like I do.
Whole Wheat Orzo with Grilled Chicken and Roasted Veggies
This can be made ahead of time and is delicious served hot or cold.
A burger that is kicked up a notch.
Perfect for marinating steak, chicken or seafood before it hits the grill.
Refreshing with a giant scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
BBQ Ranch Shredded Chicken Sliders
Who doesn’t love sliders at a party?
Make a party-sized version of this salad. It has bacon.
Start summer with a classic – s’mores!
Parmesan Roasted Potato Wedges
A crispy, crunchy, healthier version of french fries.
Lightened Up Four Cheese Mac and Cheese
This healthier mac and cheese can be made ahead of time and heated right before the party.
What’s more summery than salsa? Just hand me a margarita. Or 6.
Happy Memorial Day!

That just ain’t right.
Salad? Oh, bori- Oooooooh, bacon. S’mores brownies. Parmesan Roasted Potato Wedges! MACARONI AND CHEESE!
I concur. Yum.
Have a great weekend! I have been asked to make sh*t on a shingle…that is how my husband like to celebrate Memorial day. I think I will enjoy a black bean burger instead! Our men and their requests…
I’ll take a little of each, please!
I always want to make so many of your dishes, but with this whole FODMAPs diet it’s so difficult (and that’s the case with most blogs I read). The mac & cheese always makes me drooool.
Pittsburgh was quite an amazing city! We were only there for a bit but I loved crossing the bridge where the three rivers met. So neat!
Oh God, those chicken sliders look sooo good! I was going to look for a recipe for homemade BBQ sauce, I’ll try this one. Thanks! :D
Ahh the bbq chicken sliders look awesome!!! So does that choc chip pie!
I’d like each of everything, please. And I don’t mean in itty bitty appetizer sizes. :-)
My mouth is watering right now! Those sliders look fun!
Seriously…..Do you deliver!?!? I will take one of everything! Be-autiful!
hell yes to all of it! especially the s’mores brownies…those disappeared immediately when i took them to work!
Those potato wedges look awesome :)
I think I’ll take a little bit of each please, yummmmmm!! I hope yall have a very Happy Memorial Day weekend!! :)
P.S. I was telling my grandmother who was born and raised in Pittsburgh all about your blog yesterday. I told her you mentioned that cookies are a big thing to have at weddings up there and she immediately said, “ohhh yes, soooooo many cookies!!” ;)
Commence drooling NOW!!
I made one of your recipes for breakfast this morning!!!! I will post about it tonight!!!!
Okay, I want to make ALL of these. Actually, I want someone to make them for me :-)
Have a great holiday weekend, Jess!
Fabulous ideas. The chocolate chip cookie pie looks out of this world. I can imagine how good it is all melty and hot!
Kiwi mango salsa!!! Holy yum!
It all looks amazing. But the 1st one, the bbq sauce. I remember when you posted that, and i wanted it then and still do. I mean who doesnt want smores brownies but i could eat ketchup with a spoon. And sauce. I just hate the sodium in most prepared foods so this one, ahhh, great work.
I hope you’re having a ball! I am on a little packing break…Ugh. So much work.
Everything looks amazing!
I made those s’mores brownies for a grill-out and everyone LOVED them! Thanks for such a fun delicious recipe!
So this morning I woke up and totally had the urge to make homemade bbq sauce. So I did. And from what I tasted it is delicious! About to bbq up the chicken that has been marinating in said bbq sauce really soon, can’t wait :D Hope you are having a great holiday weekend!
That kiwi salsa looks A-may-zing. I am drooling!!!
Mac and cheese and cookie pie? YES PLEASE!
Jess your blog is brilliant for food ideas! You definitely know how to enjoy food!!
All of these sound great–where I do start!?
Great job Jessica!! I love these posts… when you put a bunch of recipes together… it makes my very lazy self feel so much better. :)
