Fourth of July Recipes

Rounding up a few of my favorite Fourth of July recipes for this year’s celebration. Hard to believe it’s just a couple days away! I imagine that this year, your celebration may look a little different. It may not include 25 of your closest family and friends. It may not be indoors with an extensive buffet. It may be a smaller crowd that’s much more intimate and BYOF (bring-your-own-food). But that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate with some fun and festive dishes. My husband and I are gonna be making burgers before work and that’s our small idea of a celebration, I hope that these recipes inspire you to create your perfect quarantine Fourth of July.
