Celebrate the 4th of July with Flair

The heat from Summer feels oppressive and mosquitoes are everywhere, which means it's almost time to celebrate the 4th of July. Grab your favorite side dish and brush up on the lyrics to Star Spangled Banner, America the Beautiful is ready to party!

American flags hang from the front of houses. Trees and shrubs surround a clear sidewalk on a sunny day.

Make this Independence Day celebration a memorable occasion by kicking it off with dessert first. When using our beautiful Ceramabake Bakeware, you'll be able to serve straight from the bakeware, saving time on clean up! You'll love this Sour Cream Flag Cake recipe by Ina Garten. 

A cake topped with white icing, strawberries and blueberries is patterened to resemble the American flag. The cake sits on a plate with a red checkered background, on top of a table.

Sugar cookies with Royal Icing are always a hit. For a pinch of patriotic flair, add red, white and blue sprinkles. The colors will really pop against your Ceramabake Bakeware

Star shaped cookies feature red and blue frosting as well as red, white and blue round sprinkles generously applied.

Two-Berry Fluff Salad from Taste of Home can double as a side dish or a dessert!

Everyone looks forward to the food on the 4th of July, especially those delicious entrees! If you're planning on a picnic consider taking Picnic Fried Chicken, one of America's favorite past-time picnic entrees.

The wafting scents of smoke and barbeque sauce will entice everyone to gather 'round the grill to chat while you perfect these Prize-Winning Baby Back Ribs. They're sure to impress the barbeque connoisseurs at your celebration.

Juicy, individual smoked ribs sit on a wooden cutting board.

And since you've already fired up the grill, the kids will love an All-American Grilled Chicago Dog

Grilled hotdog inside of a bun on a white background features lettuce, tomato and mustard drizzled across the top.

If you think BBQ is just for meat lovers, think again! You won't even miss the meat in these Emilie Eats Easy Vegan BBQ Jack Fruit Sandwiches. She even describes Jackfruit as "deceptively resembles pulled pork in texture". I

Side-dishes are something that everyone can agree on, so don't forget them! Add a large batch of picnic mac and cheese to your plate for a few mouthfuls of creamy, cheesy goodness. 

It's not a picnic without Baked Beans. These Sugar & Soul Dr. Pepper Baked Beans are practically a national treasure, and we're sure the whole gang will love them.

Lemony Almond-Feta Green Beans from Taste of Home will add a bit of tang and will help you reach your vegetable goal for the day! It may be a holiday but there's no need to slack on getting those veggies in when they're crisp and delicious.

With the hot weather, you'll want to have an assortment of cold drinks available for everyone to drink. For something red, white and blue that's spirit based might we suggest Boozy Red, White and Blue Slushies from Wide Open Eats? The kids will love a similar alcohol free version from Genius Kitchen. 

Glass mason jar mugs with handles feature a frozen drink with red, white and blue layers on a patriotic background.
