It's the season and weekend for all things America! Time for lake time, bbqs and enjoying favorite summer treats and time spent with friends and family. With so many ideas (you can thank Pinterest and Bloglovin' for that) I'm having a hard time deciding! Maybe you can help?
Fourth of July Treat Ideas and Links
Flash back to two years ago when I did some experimenting and came up with these. Not sorry about this sweet no bake recipe. Give me all the s'mores this time of year! Try my ooey gooey no bake s'mores bars and you won't be sorry!
How beautiful is this fruit pizza? It has a sugar cookie base, cream cheese "sauce" and all the colorful summer fresh fruit! I'm thinking this NEEDS to happen! Find the recipe on Sally's blog HERE
Vanilla cake + fruit + yogurt...I think these could be cake for breakfast. Throw in some blueberries, raspberries and strawberries and call it an all American breakfast. I'm thinking sprinkles too! Check out Lindsey's recipe on her blog HERE
PUPPY CHOW! this is a fourth of July staple around here! Always have to have this class around - do you call it muddy buddies, puppy chow or something else? Just curious... Check out the recipe for this one HERE
Need something more veggie related? Give my broccoli salad a try! Super versatile and can be made in a large batch too -
Sweet Potato Nachos are the best of both words - and who doesn't like ANYTHING tacoish?
How outrageously awesome is this cake from Something Swanky? She always has some awesome recipes and I'm tempted to give this one a whirl! What do you think?
Super festive and look soooo good!! Always something interesting and delish from Food Faith and Fitness! Check out these bars HERE
If you are looking for a cocktail this boozy slushy looks so refreshing!
A fun twist on a macaroni salad!
I'm not usually the biggest fan of quinoa - but this looks sooooo good and I would definitely go for this one!
and one more recipe from Sally - s'mores + cookies = PERFECTION
