The Fourth of July is one week from today, and I can't wait. It's one of my favorite days of the year. To me, it represents everything I love about summer - celebration, friends, sunshine, fireworks, and food. I'm especially excited this year because Robbie gets to stop home from tour on the fourth, so we'll all be able to celebrate with our friends as a family. And while the plan is to continue to focus on my clean eating routine into July, I will absolutely be taking the fourth off to fully savor as many delicious foods as possible. While searching for some fun food ideas to create and bring to the party we'll be attending (I am a sucker for holiday themed foods), I came across these delightful looking recipes, so I thought I'd share them here for this summertime edition of 10 Great. While all of these are vegetarian, you could easily incorporate meat into the savory dishes. Enjoy!



  1. Happy to hear Robbie will be with you for the celebrations! The berry tart in #2 looks delicious!

  2. What festive food finds! I'm so glad Robbie will be home to celebrate with you :)

  3. I am totally gonna make that salad. Thanks for the ideas!

  4. We don't celebrate the fourth of July in Canada, of course, but I have to say that pretty much all of these recipes have be tempted to start cooking up red, white and blue confections just because ;)
