My Must Have 4th of July Recipes


Summer is here and so is the Fourth of July! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by and how different this year feels from last year. So much has changed and I am so happy to finally be back to some normalcy. Of course since we are going back to tradition, here is my menu for this year’s celebration! But first let’s start celebrating with a glass of either my Summer Sangria or Tinto de Verano (Summer Wine). Both of these cocktails are fruitilicious and oh so good!

If you know me by now, you know I always start off my menu with an amazing appetizer. This time we have two choices and they are both worth the calories! We can start off the celebration with my Cheesy Bacon Dip or my Sweet Potato Nacho Fries! Trust me either choice is mouth watering and so worth it!

For the main course, I will either serve my Chicken Satay w/Peanut Dipping Sauce or my Chicken and Waffles. Heck maybe I will serve both! These recipes are both easy and quick to make and who doesn’t love chicken?!

Lastly, and most importantly, we have my famous Patriotic Lemon Cake! No Fourth of July is complete without a yummy, fruity and patriotic dessert and this cake right here is the perfect end to any celebration. For those in want of a lighter dessert, my rich and frothy Fourth of July vanilla shake is another option.
