*4* Fourth of July Recipes!

Hey, friends! So tomorrow is the Fourth of July, and for those of you who live in the United States, you’d know it as Independence Day! Because of the nice, hot, summer weather, and the nationwide love for food, I’ve decided to put together four great themed recipes for the special holiday. These recipes can range anywhere from being sweet, savory, and refreshing!

Sparkling Red, White, and Blue Sangria (+ Non-Alcohol Alternative)Sparkling-Red-White-and-Blue-Sangria-Recipe-4

So, this is a white sangria (it uses white wine instead of red wine), but for those of you who don’t necessarily drink or care for alcohol can substitute the wine for Sprite, 7up, or Sierra Mist if you’d like it to be sweeter, or Ginger Ale or soda water for something a little less sweet-tasting. Bonus: this recipe is gluten-free!

Taco Salad Flag

Flag-Taco-Salad-Step-5-300x203So this is definitely savory, and for those of you who don’t necessarily experiment with the presentation of your tacos, this seems like a nice thing to try. The recipe serves 6-8, depending on your serving sizes, and it’s really easy to make, so I recommend making two of these if you’re having a larger gathering. This recipe also gives you a vegetarian alternative, saying you can use vegetarian crumbles instead of the ground beef.

Red, White, and Blue Deviled EggsDeviled-Eggs-2-768x624

I had to. I LOVE deviled eggs, and when I saw this recipe, I knew that I just had to include it. It’s such a surprise to see grace the food table and delicious! If you have your own deviled egg recipe already, to make these, just let the peeled, hardboiled eggs soak in water with a few drops of food coloring (completely covered) for 20-30 minutes. I still recommend taking a peek at this recipe, though!

Patriotic Rice Krispie Treats

ricekrispiesThe amazing thing about the website I found this on, is that this particular post has so many other patriotic dessert recipes for you to try! Something I recommend you try is making your own homemade Rice Krispie treats with the cereal and melted marshmallows. 🙂


Try one of these, take a risk! If you do, don’t even hesitate to let me know! I’d love to hear how it turned out.

Love,

Cec ❤
