28 Recipes for the Fourth of July

I told you guys I would help you prepare for the Fourth, and I’m keeping my word!

28 Recipes for the Fourth of July | #recipesI am sharing 28 of my recipes that would be perfect for any Fourth of July celebration, since, you know, it’s next Friday. I still can’t believe it’s nearly July—crazy!

It includes drinks, apps, entrees, and lots and lots of desserts (because those are the most fun, obviously).

But, I do still have a few festive recipe ideas to share this coming week, so keep an eye out for those!
