Summer’s officially here, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I know I’m not alone in saying that this is my favorite season, mostly because it’s filled with nostalgia and childhood memories of blissful, sun-filled days growing up.
I still make a point to come home to Kansas City for a couple of weeks in the summer to spend time with my parents, and this trip happens to be over the Fourth, which makes the visit extra fun!
But, as for most holidays, the best part of any good celebration is the food, of course. The Fourth is the perfect opportunity to whip out all of those festive, summer recipes you’ve been dying to try. Plus, don’t miss out on all of the amazing seasonal fruits and veggies available these days — I utilize much of this produce in both the sweet and savory recipes below.
Be sure to let me know if you give any of these goodies a try by tagging me on Instagram @goodness_with_g, and I so hope to be a part of your festivities this year!
