Ingredients for Your Best July 4th Celebration

Independence Day is just a few short days away.  While you’re busy making plans to see the new “Independence Day” movie, attend your county’s fireworks display or put on your own, the one thing you can’t forget is the food!

As is our custom on this blog, I’ve compiled some great red, white & blue recipes and decorations so you can have the best party on the block this Monday. Let’s dive in!

Drinks are first: Vodka Lemonade Slushies from And They Cooked Happily Ever After

And for the kids, Triple Berry Smoothies from In Katrina’s Kitchen

Appetizer: Firework Fruit Kabobs from Spark Recipes (Seriously these are just too cute to resist. Dust off your Christmas cookie cutters to make the watermelon stars!)

Then it’s time for barbecue, or whatever your favorite July 4 dinner is. I’d opt for burgers, grilled corn and coleslaw myself! Then it’s time for glorious dessert and I’ve got too options for you:

First, the M&M Flag Cake from Two Sisters Crafting. The best part about this one is you can make the cake whatever flavor you want and you don’t lose the July 4 theme.
