Nothing says summer like a barbecue. While the grill might be the main attraction, putting a personal spin on classic summer dishes and desserts can add flair to your outdoor spread.

There are a number of quick and easy ways to add your signature touch to the standard summer barbecue fare. For instance, trade in the predictable potato salad for a refreshing pasta sensation.

With a few ingredients, such as candy sprinkles, marshmallows and nuts, you can add your own twist to brownies and transform them into a customized confection. They score huge “brownie points” with adults and children alike.

Between the perfect main course and delectable side dishes, barbecues will surely be a family favorite. For more ideas to make your barbecue sizzle, visit the Web site www.BettyCrocker.com.
