With Memorial Day and 4th of July quickly coming up on the calendar, I really wanted to share my top 10 Red White and Blue Themed Recipes that I've posted over the years on the blog. Regardless of where you stand during today's extremely heated political climate, I am sure that we can all agree on thing: it is not exactly easy to be an American at the moment. Our political lines are so tense, people are so angry...I really can't stress enough that we, as Americans, can LOVE OUR COUNTRY and not agree with everything that is going on - no matter what your political view point.
