10 Independence Day Recipes

Tomorrow is Independence Day. How are you celebrating?!

The majority of Americans will be celebrating with family, friends, fireworks, and a barbecue. Still running around trying to decide what to bring to the festivities? Look no further.

I took the liberty (ha!) of cruising through Pinterest looking for patriotic food finds. I compiled a list of ten fun recipes that you can make to help you and yours celebrate the day. The recipes range from nutritious to not-so-nutritious, some gluten-free and some not. It’s okay to enjoy a treat! Remember all in moderation!

People are so gosh darn creative it’s amazing. It puts me to shame. 😉 I wish I could take credit for these recipes but I most certainly cannot, so if you want to view the recipe, click on the image and it will bring you to the creator’s website and recipe.

      “A” Mojito? One singular mojito? I highly doubt that. 😉 Kidding kidding! Sounds very relaxing! Have a great weekend hon!

      I was very intrigued by that one too! It would be super tasty with cinnamon tortilla chips or cinnamon pita chips!

      My aunt makes the strawberry pretzel ones for family get togethers and I always have to have some. I love the combo of sweet and salty!
