4th of July to me is about celebrating our freedom with family and close friends, eating good food, and making new memories.
Growing up, we always spent 4th of July with our cousins.
Swimming all day, eating watermelon, strawberries, and homemade ice cream, and come nightfall, we would watch our dads set off fireworks in the street while running around the yard with sparklers.
Young and carefree without a worry in the world.
Except maybe if your sparkler was a dud.
Boy have times changed!
But one thing that remains the same is good food.
In fact, the food part has even gotten better throughout the years.
These days, there are so many patriotic recipes to help you celebrate your July 4th.
With a little help from some blogger friends, I’ve collected some of the best red, white, and blue treats to help you celebrate your freedom this Independence Day.
This is Part 1 of my Red, White, and Blue July 4th Dessert Roundup.
Part 2 will be out next week so you still have time to prepare for the big day.
