I don’t think I could explain just how much I love the 4th of July! It is a day full of family and friends, great food, and a beautiful fireworks display! I always make sure to step up my game for this holiday and make tons of foods to match the colors of the day: red, white and blue. You can serve naturally red, white, and blue recipes to your family and friends that don’t use any artificial ingredients. Check out the beautiful colors that nature has to offer and set them out on your table for a super festive and fun party that all your guests will never forget!
