Whether you're hosting or attending a Fourth of July celebration, there's one question that will most definitely be on your mind on the days leading up to this fun-filled, summer holiday: What food should I make?
Hot dogs, burgers, chips and pasta salad will probably be your initial ideas. Although you can't go wrong with a juicy, grilled burger and some fries on a hot summer day, these options are just way too predictable.
Go the extra mile this year and surprise your guests or host with a creative, mouthwatering dish that will leave everyone satisfied. And as for your man? There is a very good chance he'll go all Katy Perry on you and tell you that, "Baby you're a firework."
After all, there's no better way to celebrate America's birthday than to declare your independence from the bland, boring dishes you're used to!
