25 Awesome 4th Of July Picnic Recipes

While there are some red, white and blue recipes on this list, there are also a plethora of picnic, barbecue, and party recipes that would be perfect to serve your family and friends this Independence Day!

I have also noted the recipes that I will be making for my family’s 4th of July celebration in our backyard. Hubby and I got together and made a list, and many of the yummy recipes I share on this blog are what I serve us for dinner, at parties, or when we have a picnic.

The menu is a lot of tried and true faborites, with the addition of Fireworks blondies this year.

Since my cousin’s SO has a daughter with a lot of food allergies, I am making certain she has at least one very yummy dessert she can enjoy!

Now all I am hoping for is no rain. {crosses fingers}

Have a happy, safe, Independence Day party!
