For all of my American friends, I hope this is your last day of work/school before the holiday weekend! If not, I hope you’re at least feeling slightly in the holiday spirit. :-)I have next to no energy at this point (after a long week of babysitting and a long, busy weekend), so instead of my usual WIAW post, I decided to do a recipe roundup to get us all prepared for the 4th!
Thanks as always to Jenn for hosting!
Holiday picnics, get-togethers, and BBQs are classic American events in my book, but a lot of times, it’s challenging for people with allergies or intolerance to be able to relax and enjoy themselves at such events. With that in mind, I decided to put together a list of allergy-friendly foods to make and take to your 4th of July celebration!
My Berry Breakfast Quinoa – that counts as red, white, and blue, right? 😉
Martha Stewart: Firecracker Ice Pops – replace the sugar with honey, and you have yourself a healthy and fun breakfast!
The Daily Meal: fruit flag waffles – use this as inspiration and make your own or find “friendly” waffles!
My Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers – allergy and vegan friendly!
How Sweet It Is: Crockpot BBQ Beer Chicken sandwiches
Taste of Home: All-American Bacon Cheeseburgers (leave off the cheese for a dairy-free version!)
Southern Living: Best Fried Chicken
Chocolate Covered Katie: Totally Addictive Cornbread (egg, nut, dairy, and gluten free!)
Lucy’s Friendly Foods: Rainbow ‘Slaw
Party City: Fruit Flag
PETA: Baked Onion Rings – baked, not fried, and vegan!
My All Natural Green Tea Lemonade
Happier Happenings: Red and Blue Ice Cubes served in Sprite. Kid and adult friendly!
Southern Living: 19 Recipes for Sweet Tea
Guy Fieri: Fourth of July Cocktail
In Katrina’s Kitchen: July 4th Layered Drinks – for kids! Ok, so there’s a lot of sugar…but c’mon, it’s a holiday! 🙂
My Key Lime Sorbet – for something refreshing!
My Strawberry Lemon Frozen Yogurt
Use any cheesecake as a base, and try out this decoration!
Pillsbury: Patriotic Cookie Pizza (use my sugar cookie dough as a base!)
Taste of Home: Pretzel SparklersSouthern Queen of Vegan Cuisine: Apple Pie
And there we have it! I hope this post gave you lots of ideas for your holiday celebrations!I probably won’t be posting tomorrow, so please have a wonderful and safe 4th of July! 🙂
So many awesome ideas! Thanks for sharing Liv! 🙂 🙂
Great roundup! I’m so glad I saw this because we might be having people over for the fourth now!
Thanks for linking up all these awesome recipes! There’s nothing like some good food on the fourth 🙂 Even if I don’t make if for the fourth, I really, really want to try your green tea lemonade sometime!
Oh my gosh, those drinks are so pretty! You’re right – holy sugar – but they would be a cute treat. I didn’t know that you could layer based on sugar content!
Although all of these eats look fabulous I would totally devour that key lime pie. Yummmmmm
Great ideas! Love the red, white and blue waffle idea and your sweet potato black bean burger look delish!
I can’t actually pick one thing I want to eat most. It all look delicious.
What a great round-up! Those layered drinks are so vibrant and pretty. I bet they taste pretty good too… 🙂
I would want to try your strawberry lemon frozen yogurt or those Popsicles from Martha Stewart!
Yay for these recipes…loved themed food. Those Martha Stewart Pops look like a must-make! Thanks for the inspiration:)
LOVE these recipes! Also, I nominated you for the Liebster award!! 🙂
Ooh, I didn’t know you had a recipe for sweet potato black bean burgers- need to try those, ASAP. Maybe even for a party next weekend 🙂 Those fruity flag waffles look amazing, too.
I LOVE the red white ice cubes. I’ll be down at my parents’ tomorrow and I’m sure my mom will get a kick out of those 🙂
Have a great holiday, Liv!
Three cheers for recipe roundups. Man oh man. I love when people do themed recipes. Those popsicles have my eye. I’ve been wanting to buy a popsicle maker, but have yet to do so. I am definitely now going to go get a cheap one immediately, so I can start making some great ones like those!
Happy 4th July Olivia!
I love all these red, white & blue food pics that you’ve compiled. They are awesome. I can’t wait to check out all the recipes!
Here’s wishing you a fantastic holiday. I hope it’s full of fun & laughter for you & your loved ones ♥
Ah! I wish I’d seen this sooner! Definitely going to save this page for next year! 🙂
your burgers look soooo good! hope you had a fabulous 4th!
Wow, I should really not read food blogs so early in the a.m. and on an empty stomach. It all looks and sounds really good. Great round-up.
I hope you had a great fourth of July and long weekend.
I love that fruit flag that is quite awesome!
[…] because I did a Red, White, and Blue Recipe Roundup last week, I didn’t get a chance to share my weekly eats with you all. This week’s WIAW […]
