Food for the 4th

Since the best perk of not living in a real city is the availability of fun fireworks, we've been the go-to party location for celebrating the 4th of July since we moved to Crossroads in 2006.

This year Matt made burgers and I made several new recipes for sides as we celebrated with a few friends.  Plus - since I cook healthy foods 90% of the time this was a good chance for me to make a few things I've had my eye on that I don't usually eat.

If you want something new for your next BBQ, try one of these tasty recipes ASAP...
