Happy (almost) Birthday, ‘MERICA!

Hard to believe she will be turning 239. Where did the time go? It feels like yesterday she was dumping tea into the Boston harbor and telling the British to go fly a kite. Time has certainly flown by, but she is still lookin’ fine.

So, to celebrate America, I thought what better way then with a delicious spread. I’m talking the full patriotic show full of red, white, and blue appetizers, sides, entrees, and desserts. We are leaving no tablecloth untouched and no firework unlit.

To help us out, I’ve rounded-up a few food bloggers that know how to get down with the red, white, and blue. Check out these dishes to get inspired for the fourth!

Happy Fourth of July, friends!
