Recipes: Favorites Rock Memorial Day Cookout
Charred Orange-Glazed Chicken
Set your gardening gloves aside. With the unofficial kickoff to summer just days away, it's time to get serious about your Memorial Day menu. These recipes fit right into the relaxed nature of the weekend, and you'll still have plenty of time to dig in your beds!

Grilled chicken
Adding orange juice, peel and a little apricot fruit spread to a purchased barbecue sauce creates an easy sweet-and-savory mop to brush over Charred Orange-Glazed Chicken during grilling.

Beef kabobs
Chunks of top sirloin, onion and lime wedges, and whole cherry tomatoes are threaded onto skewers, quickly grilled and served with a zesty citrus-based sauce in Mojo Beef Kabobs.

Potato salad
Tangy German Style Potato Salad is a fun twist on tradition that cooks the potatoes in water plus vinegar to give them extra flavor before tossing them with bacon, peas, onions and a Djion vinaigrette.

Baked beans
Baked beans are the ideal barbecue side dish, especially when they're as hands-off as chipotle-spiked Smoky Baked Beans. Just toss everything in a casserole and cook.

Peanut butter bars
Imagine taking a peanut butter cookie dough, studding it with chocolate chips and baking it bar-style. Now outdo yourself by adding a decadent top layer of chocolate to create super-tasty Peanut Butter Blondies.
