July 4th Recipe Lineup

The birth of American independence from Great Britain. Although the vote for independence actually took place on July 2nd, 1776, it wasn’t until two days later that delegates from the 13 colonies formally adopted the Declaration of Independence.

Today, July 4th has become synonymous with parades, barbecues, family gatherings and of course, fireworks! And, what a sweet coincidence that berries make the perfect menu items showing off those celebratory red, white and blue colors. Here are a few delicious recipes to commemorate the occasion!
