Since the 4th of July is 4 days away, I’ve rounded up 4 of my favorite user friendly fun-filled easy peasy recipes from 4th of Julys of the past! They’ve all been taste tested and friend and family approved! 

Simple, delicious and festive. Perfect for any parade, picnic or patio!

The first of the 4 recipes, is the refreshing Patriotic Watermelon & Feta Flag (as shown above). It takes only minutes to put together and the sweet and salty factor makes it a perfect appetizer or a healthy dessert.

 Or how about a Fresh Mozzarella Tomato & Basil Flag to kick off the meal?

Fresh and flavorful and fun to eat plain or with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

 Hot ham & swiss sammies have been a 4th of July tradition since I was a little nipper.

Would you just look at that sweet little sammie? You know that you want indulge in the warm savory poppy butter sauce, melted cheese, sweet salty cooked ham and ever-so-crispy bun, don’t you?

Your guests will too! They’re so yummy and travel friendly.

Have you ever made 4th of July Marshmallow Pops?

The kids will love ‘em and the adults will feel like kids again. And to me that’s just what the 4th of July is all about.

Fun, friends and festive food!

Hope I’ve made your entertaining a little easier this year.

Happy Red, White & Blue to you & yours!
