Happy first official day of summer! I always start getting pumped for 4th of July on the summer solstice. It’s like as soon as the calendar tells me summer is really here, my mind goes right to 4th of July and the nostalgia that comes long with it. We will be in Colorado for the 4th this year, but we usually go to a party here in Chicago, and I’m always in charge of bringing a snack/appetizer (my favorite kind of food!). Today I’m sharing four recipes for the items I most often bring to the party, each of which is perfect for summertime. Click on any of the images of links below them for the full recipes. Enjoy!
