July 4th Menu

is here!!  
I’m so excited!  It’s time to put on your swimsuit, head to the water, eat yummy food with the ones you love and watch the fireworks.  I’ve created a simple menu for you no matter how big or small your festivities may be…

Black Bean Dip

Grab a bag of chips, tortillas or just a big spoon…this dip will be gone in no time!

Hawaiian Dip

Like vacation on a graham cracker…heaven.

Broccoli & Grape Pasta Salad

Serve this as a salad or main course.  It’s perfect paired with a burger.

Tomatillo & Pineapple Burgers

Speaking of burgers, this one is easy, flavorful and fun.  A great twist on a classic!

If you want something besides a burger for your festivities, try my meatballs!  Served on slider buns or rolls, they are a huge crowd pleaser!

Hot Fudge Sundae Bundt Cakes

A party in a cake…perfect poolside.

If you missed my post from yesterday, Bundt Cake #97 was in honor of this holiday…Red, White, and Blueberry
And of course, the ultimate Fourth of July cake :).
Have a wonderful holiday!!
