Are you ready for the 4th of July? We know we are! Plenty of sunshine, good food and friends and family always make the 4th one of our favorite holidays here at ShopRite.
But maybe this year, you’re thinking you want to try something a little different? Instead of the classic run of hot dogs and hamburgers, why not set up your very own Hot Dog Bar?!
Try this delicious adaptation of Elote, which is Mexican street corn. It is a delicious addition to your Summer grilling spread.
It’s time to bust out the grill for the next recipe in our Cinco de Mayo Countdown! You may have had grilled corn at your BBQ last year, but have you ever tried elote? Mexican grilled street corn amps up the flavor with taco seasoning, fresh cilantro, and a sprinkling of Mexican Cotija cheese.
We’re not saying your grilled corn isn’t delicious (we’re sure it is!), we’re just saying our version is a must for your Cinco de Mayo party this year!

These veggies have so much flavor on their own they need very little prep or other ingredients to make a tasty meal. I often grill a bunch at once and keep them in the fridge to have alongside of burgers or toss them on top of sandwiches and salads. Read More »
Every week I walk by the seafood department in my local ShopRite and see beautiful pink pieces of salmon. This week they had a fresh-off-the-boat delivery of Wild Alaskan Salmon.

It’s finally outdoor grilling season. Time to fire up the gas, charcoal, or whatever you use for the purpose of charring foodstuffs. But remember, with barbecuing comes great responsibility, and your cooking technique says a lot about you.
