Whether you’re throwing a small or big shindig, your 4th of July menu should be totally topnotch. Just like with any party, you can go a number of routes: a simple BBQ, a buffet or a spread that would make Martha Stewart swoon.

A dessert not for the faint of heart. One bite of this s’mores pie and you’ll be back chasing fireflies and roasting hot dogs around a campfire.
With so many people with dietary restrictions now, it doesn’t hurt to cook as safely as possible. This vegan and gluten-free chocolate pudding is the perfect dessert to please everyone!
