I know this post is super late, but better late than never, right?
Fourth of July is by far my favorite second-tier holiday. I love fireworks, picnics, America and seeing family, but put that all together and it's a pretty magical day. This year, I made dinner and invited the grandparents over. I was excited to try out some new recipes, and I think everything turned out pretty well.
Roasted Red Potatoes
Roasted Green Beans (thanks Aunt Charlotte!)
Boston Baked Beans
not really a cake, but I don't know what else to call it. Pretty easy, just store-bought sugar cookie dough, cream cheese frosting, and fresh berries. Too bad no one wanted to eat the blueberry part.
Chocolate Honey Almond Tart (from Giada At Home)
I was really excited about the Chocolate Tart and using my new springform pan for the first time. It was really rich and creamy, but the graham cracker crust was super crumbly. Next time, I think I'll try more butter and see if that helps it stick together better.
I'm already thinking about next year and what I'll make!
