Ah, Independence Day.

Only problem? You’re not really of the cooking type. It’s all good–we’ve got you covered. Here’s a lil’ roundup of some of the best recipes full of color, flavor, and fresh summery goodness. Let us be your one stop shop for a perfect menu. We’ll do the food, you bring the margaritas.
Burrata and Heirloom Tomato Crostinis
We love burrata cheese more than anything in the entire world. Seriously. So creamy, so melty, so delicious… you have to make these delicious crostinis. The heirloom tomatoes are the juicy icing on that cheesy cake. With salt and cracked black pepper on top, these tasty little treats will really get the party started.
Beer-Brined Blackened Chicken Breasts and Grilled Mexican Corn
Next, the main course. Any food that’s covered in beer is good food, and these beer-brined, blackened chicken breasts are so tender, crispy, and savory that our mouths are watering just thinking about them. They’re perfect paired with some slightly spicy Mexican grilled corn. Nom.
Homemade Firecracker Popsicles
And finally, dessert. What could be more important than popsicles? Well, maybe burrata. But good thing we don’t have to choose. These homemade firecracker pops are delicious AND patriotic. Eat as many as possible to show just how much you love stars and stripes.
And please, invite us to the party. We hear the food is killer. Who gave you all those recipes?
