Following that one particularly sparkly and festive holiday in December, the 4th of July is very easily my favorite holiday. I’m pretty sure it’s because I love summer, but I’m also pretty sure it’s because I am kind of a fireworks fanatic. Plus all that red, white and blue patriotic spirit gets me right in the feels, friends. Little kids with faces painted with sparkly red and blue stars? I am all about that life. I kind of wish I were one of those kids. (Is 33 too old for face paint?) So today, to kick off the run up to the 4th of July, we’re talking about 12 of the most patriotic 4th of July recipes going. I’ve got all of the red, white and blue foods rounded up right here. Pin ’em for later and enjoy!
