Lois, from Walking on Sunshine Recipes, shares an Easy Classic Deviled Eggs recipe. I think most people think deviled eggs are a given for all Sunday lunches, holiday dinners, and cookouts. Get egg-cited and head over to her blog to see what ingredients make this a classic!

Another classic staple for cookouts, from Nancy C, is Creamy Dill Potato Salad. She uses red potatoes instead of regular potatoes and I like the idea of that twist in her recipe. I think potato salad taste best when you make ahead.
