We love all the possibilities for sharing dishes with friends or family at a holiday gathering.  So we have gone ahead and put together some recipe ideas for when you host your own gathering or need a dish idea to take to a BBQ.  And let’s not forget our 4- legged companions.  If your celebration includes some happy-tailed dogs, we have a simple yet tasty treat to help them beat the summer heat. Have a safe and entertaining Independence Day!
