Biting into the small cheese biscuits and finding a little olive treasure tucked inside is so much fun!

This Sourdough French Bread recipe is very easy to do, but if you desire, you can also purchased your bread to save some time.
3rd Course – Main Course and Side:
Petite Pork Roast
This is my husband’s FAVORITE pork roast. Great for dinner parties. I have served it to everyone I know, and now I can only cook it for ourselves! You will be surprised how low in calories and fat pork is! We like this roast served either with or without the Savory Mustard Sauce. Both ways are great!
Perfect Mashed Potatoes
Mashed potatoes are as simple to make, but still there is a real art in getting them perfect. Not too airy or too heavy, with just enough butter, salt, pepper, and cream. Potatoes are basically water and starch. High starch potatoes like russet and Yukon Gold produce the best mashed potatoes. The final result depends on the quality of the potatoes used.
4th Course – Desserts:
Lemon Rosemary Sorbet
This Lemon Sorbet is so refreshing and a hot summer
High Tea Lemon Cookies
This is an old-fashion recipe that is very rich and delicious. If you love lemon, you will absolutely love these cookies. Be prepared thought, all your friends will want this recipe after they taste these delicious cookies.
This course can either be served at your dining table after clearing the dishes or in the living room. A good way to end a meal is with a (decaf) latte. Learn how to make a perfect cup of Coffee.

Picnic Safety Tips – There is nothing more American than the picnic. Picnics can take on many forms, such as the community picnic, friends and neighbors, tailgate parties, or ball games. There is also one sure thing at every picnic – lots of good food. The important point is to have safe and healthy food, not food that can cause food borne illness. Always prepare and store food properly.
Summer Safety Tips – Summer is the time for barbecues and picnics. The biggest party crasher at summer picnic and buffets is food borne bacteria. You can not see them and you can not taste them, but you sure can feel them if illness occurs hours or days later.
