The summer season here in the States involves getting ready for our Independence Day celebrations. My family and I are so lucky and blessed to be able to have a huge 4th of July firework show right around the corner from us.
There is food and music all day and they end the night with a huge fireworks display. My kids really enjoy it and we hope to be able to attend this year as well. I have a few of my own ideas in store for the 4th of July and I can’t wait to share that with you.
For now, I rounded up 30 amazing 4th of July food ideas that I hope will inspire you for your celebration this year. As they have inspired my plans for my 4th of July menu this year.

I always like to add my own twist and I always leave out the ingredients I know we don’t care for. That is the fun part about cooking is making a recipe your own. Until next time friends.
