Start and end your 4th with a bang.
Hint: we’re not talking fireworks.
Bring ’em out, bring ’em out! Really just some substance to accompany your great-aunt’s “famous” potato salad. *wink wink*
You can’t go wrong with this simple crowd-pleaser. Serve over fluffy white rice (to sop up that sauce!) with juicy pineapple wedges.
The messier the merrier. Or something like that. Don’t forget to pick up a boatload of moist towelettes.
These sweet treats contain fruit, so they’re pretty much healthy… just go with it.
Make your life easy and nix the need to slice an actual cake. Serving size = 4, duh.
Too hot to turn that oven of yours on? No sweat. This colorful cheesecake is just what the doctor ordered. (Let’s forget the dentist for now.)
Beer is nice and all, but sometimes you need something a little more festive.
Do you like playing with fire? This delicious fruity mojito is almost as dangerous as setting off homemade fireworks in your neighbor’s front yard. Consider yourself warned.
Adults and kids alike can enjoy this refreshing sweet-tart lemonade. Grown ups, feel free to add a glug or two of chilled vodka.
