Barbecues and cookouts have always been a favorite American pastime, and chances are more grills fire up on the Fourth of July than any other day of the year. The holiday commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 and is flush with patriotism, parades, fireworks…and food. Lots and lots of food!
Truth be told, no Fourth of July spread is complete without a variety of classic picnic fare, like Mrs. Marshall’s Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, Chicken Salad, BBQ, and Garden Pasta Salad. Fresh made and delicious, all of Mrs. Marshall’s items are sure to be a hit at your Independence Day gathering. And since Mrs. Marshall’s products are available at both Kroger and MARTIN’S, they’re easy to find. Happy Fourth of July!
This Sunday, May 12 is Mother’s Day, a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood.
The official observance is credited to Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia, PA in 1907 as she honored the memory of her mother with a small gathering of friends in her home.
The following year, Ms. Jarvis persuaded her mother’s church in Grafton, WV to celebrate “Mother’s Day” on the anniversary of her mother’s death, the second Sunday of May. Ms. Jarvis and her supporters launched a grassroots campaign to establish a national Mother’s Day to honor all mothers.
By 1911, Mother’s Day was widely celebrated across the country. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson made it official: Mother’s Day would be a national holiday held each year on the second Sunday in May. He said that mothers were “the greatest source of the country’s strength and inspiration.”
It is the perfect day to gather around the table and say thanks to Mom…Happy Mother’s Day!
Enjoy Easter with your family and friends.
Our made-from-scratch sweet dough favorite is now available!
Nutmeg, glazed fruit and raisins, finished with fondant icing…Hot Cross Buns are a seasonal favorite.
Protestant England attempted to ban the sale of the buns by bakers but they were too popular, and instead Elizabeth I passed a law permitting bakeries to sell them, but only at Easter and Christmas…making them a seasonal favorite, quite literally!

Peppermint Candy Cupcakes
Each year do you look at broken and crumbled peppermint candy canes and wonder what to do with them? Try this nifty trick with cupcakes that is easy to set-up and clean-up!
1 six pack of Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods cupcakes with vanilla icing
1 six pack of Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods cupcakes with chocolate icing
1 cup of crumbled peppermint candy canes
Place individual cupcakes on plates. Have your kids take a teaspoonful of candy crumbles per cupcake. Add the crumbles to the cupcake icing either by placing them in a pattern such as a monogram, a heart or a circular pattern. For the more abstract food art fans, sprinkle on the crumbles in a free form design. Serve for dessert or an afternoon snack!

Out of all the precious gifts my children have made me—from the cut-out valentine hearts to the pipe-cleaner flowers—my favorite gifts are the times we’ve spent together in the kitchen.
It seems like even though it’s tough to get a meal together for my three little ones sometimes, the part where we get to sit down together and enjoy a few bites and talk about our day is the best reward.
This past Mother’s Day, as my kids asked me what I wanted, one thing that topped my list was a delicious dinner. One catch: it had to be one that I didn’t have to cook and did not require me going out to a crowded restaurant.
Two of my favorites from Ukrop’s Homestyle foods are the Ukrop’s Oven Bakes Baked Spaghetti and, of course, their Signature Long Stem Pink Rose Cake. That’s all they brought me, and I was happy as a clam. Happy Mother’s Day to all Richmond moms and grand moms out there, I hope it was relaxing, and delicious!

There’s so much history that surrounds St. Patrick’s Day since it came to the United
States in 1737.
Some say St. Patrick gave a sermon from a hilltop that drove all the snakes from Ireland,
which is tough to believe, since no snakes were ever native to that country!
Originally St. Patrick’s Day was a holy Catholic day, but it’s evolved into a more secular
holiday in the United States.
Whatever your St. Patty’s Day tradition, it no doubt will include treats from Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods. Whether it’s a Killarney Jewel Cake (pictured here), once-a-year St. Patty’s Day cupcakes (also pictured, yum!) or cookies, or even a custom Ukrop’s cake with your favorite “lucky charm” on it—don’t forget to have some “home-baked” Ukrop’s goodness on your kitchen table.
Our “little leprechauns” just love these treats found at Martin’s in Richmond. We are so lucky: there’s no doubt.
Share your St. Patty’s Day traditions and Ukrop’s favorites—we’d love to hear about
