Happy 4th of July, everyone!
It looks like the rain is going to be holding off for the most part today in my neck of the woods, so I’m celebrating being able to see the sun…even it if is only for a brief amount of time. I hope you all have some fun plans for cookouts, pool/beach parties, and fireworks today. Be safe!
And if you’re looking for some last minute recipes to whip up for your holiday gatherings, let me suggest a few!
This tomato, basil, and mozzarella pasta salad is my #1 recommendation. Every time I make a batch, I don’t want to share it with other people because I want to eat it all myself.
I bet you have some berries on hand right about now – triple berry crisps in a jar are a red, white, and blue treat (when you add ice cream)!
It’s not a party without guacamole. And bacon. Roasted garlic and bacon guacamole definitely pleases the crowds at my house.
Chili Lime Garlic Aioli is great for your burgers and to dip your fries!
Caprese salads scream “summer” to me – plus they’re simple and easy to prepare.
Last but not least, some red velvet crinkle cookies. They’re a cinch to make (and use a boxed cake mix as the base).
What are you making for your 4th of July get-togethers?
