4th of July Recipes!

4th of July falls on a Wednesday this year, so many of us are waiting to hold our parties until the weekend.  I, however, will be holding my 4th of July party on the actual 4th, so I wanted to put some recipes together for those of us whose parties are creeping up quickly!  I believe these recipes and dishes could also double as "summer backyard BBQ recipes."  I'm sure you can find many creative ways to incorporate some red, white, and blue into these dishes!

Mojitos - make strawberry or watermelon ones to bring some red to your table!

Sauces and Spreads
Homemade BBQ Sauce - great for grilled chicken

Appetizers and Sides
Black Bean and Corn Salsa
Cucumber Salad
Fried Onion Rings
Pimento Cheese
Zucchini Sticks

Grilled Pizza

American Funfetti Cake - if you're feeling ambitious ;)
Blueberry Streusel Cake
Mini Blueberry Tarts
Strawberry Banana Cream Pie - throw some blueberries on top for a red, white, and blue cream pie!
4th of July Sugar Cookies

And stay tuned for another Red, White, and Blue dessert within the next few days!
