July 4th is just around the corner which means I will be soaking up the sun on a lake and drinking about 832 La Croix this weekend. I finally feel back to myself after Vegas so I’m going to try not to drink too much alcohol while we spend the weekend with a ton of my husband’s close friends. Since we won’t be in our own kitchen, I plan on bringing LOTS of snacks with me (I’ll share them on snapchat, if you’re interested!). But if I were in my own kitchen on the 4th of July, here are some of the recipes I would be making for me and my guests! For me, all backyard parties should include something creamy like a dip or potato salad, finger food, delicious and refreshing cocktails or mocktails, something that can be grilled to make clean up easy AND some sort of bomb dessert to make my own life happier. The dessert is just really a selfish thing because I better get an effing dessert at a party. People who don’t serve desserts at parties are just assh*les.
Here are 60 of my favorite PaleOMG recipes that would be perfect for this weekend! You really can’t go wrong with any of them! Enjoy and be sure to share your creations on instagram using the #paleomg hashtag so I can see what you guys are loving!! It helps me create even better recipes in the future, knowing exactly what you love!! Happy Independence Day!
