The Fourth of July is probably my favorite holiday. Ever since I was a little girl, we’ve had a huge family reunion at our lake home in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.
The Northwoods is so incredible — life is different “Up North” — Slower, calmer, and more connected with the beautiful nature all around you on the lake. That, and it’s Packer Country — the land of Beer Boiled Brats, Cheese Curds, Boating, and Friday Night Fish Fries — that are All-You-Can-Eat.
Things are a bit different on the food front since then — as I’ve become Vegan and Gluten Free. But, memories at the lake are second to none. Luckily, after the fire at our lake home this past week, we are still going to be able to have our reunion — just at a rented cottage on the other side of the lake:)
So I’ve rounded up some of my best Fourth of July recipes for your Patriotic Cookouts!
