Sifted: Last Minute 4th of July Inspiration

By: Lauren Miyashiro

Firecracker Popsicles by Becca Bakes

5 Hot Links We’re Loving

  1. Becca Bake’s firecracker popsicles call for fresh berries and vanilla frozen yogurt, so you can enjoy the festive treat without feeling guilty.
  2. Avoid the mess and stress of slicing pie in front of guests. Serve Pixels and Crumbs’ strawberry hand pies instead.
  3. Burgers are key for your backyard barbecue tomorrow, and Dainty Chef’s take on the infamous Shake Shake patty is a sure hit.
  4. Beer may be the classic cookout beverage, but A Farm Girl's Dabbles' sangria with rosé and bourbon may just be this year's biggest hit.
  5. Don’t forget your veggies. Love and Lemons’ grilled vegetable skewers with chile-lime oil are great by themselves but even better with avocado, salsa and tortillas.
