4th Of July is one of my FAVORITE times of year! We drive up to my hometown in Kentucky and visit family. We gather around some pretty amazing food and watch fireworks all night long. It is simply one of my favorite family traditions that we have.
Speaking of food, here are some really amazing 4th of July treats that you can bring to your family gathering. ENJOY!
