The 4th of July means summer is officially here. Backyard barbeques with friends and family, and yet another crowd-pleasing menu to be made. Of course including everyone’s favorite, dessert. One of the biggest misconceptions for holiday entertaining is the need for elaborate, pulled together dishes that everyone will enjoy… that often times make hosting stressful.  There is no need to overcomplicate your menu when you have delicious, simple recipes everyone will love.

Keep it festive and easy to throw together so you can enjoy the 4th along with your guests, no extra pressure included. It is a holiday afterall!

Each of these recipes has their touch of red, white, and blue, but can easily be taken with you throughout your summer entertaining. With a variety of healthy to super sweet and indulgent treats, we have something decadent for every guest at your 4th celebration, because everyone has a sweet tooth.
