|Fireworks on the National Mall, 2012|
I'm feeling a little sad because I can't be home at my parent's lake house for the 4th of July this year. It's the best place to be on the 4th between the firework show put on by the neighbors, the delicious food my mom makes, and all the fun activities we can do in the lake. I wanted to share some recipes that I'd be making if I was going home for our family's big 4th of July bash.
American Flag Cake
Stout & Sriracha Beer Barbecue Sauce from the Beeroness (I'd be begging Dad to douse some ribs in this!)
Red White and Blue Poke Cake from Tracey's Culinary Adventures
Red, White, and Blue Whoopie Pies from Baking Bites (whoopie pies are a New England staple!)
Red, White, and Blue Funfetti Sandwich Cookies from Two Peas and Their Pod
Fourth of July Funfetti Cupcakes with Triple Swirl Frosting from Sugarcrafter
Watermelon Feta Mint Salad from joy the baker (watermelon just screams summer to me)
Red Velvet Marshmallows from Tracey's Culinary Adventures (to make the perfect s'mores! Mom's favorite!)
What are you doing for the 4th? I guess we'll be enjoying our last 4th of July in the Nation's Capitol! We'll have to go all out!
