Happy 4th of July!!
I hope you’re enjoying the long holiday weekend. After a couple years of mellow 4ths, this year we’re planning to make something delicious, head to the pool, and catch some fireworks!
If you’re doing the same today and need a last-minute dish to share, I’m sharing some festive Fourth recipes below along with family-friendly activities and some summery home decor ideas!
Adobe Express: New App!
I’ve partnered with Adobe Express on this post to share these recipes in creative visual form. Adobe Express is a new graphic design app that makes creating everything from flyers to cards to posters to social media graphics super easy. Everything is drag-and-drop and easy to edit. And there are hundreds of templates and stock photos to try. I made all of the graphics in this post using the app.
Give it a test run here!

These stacked smoothies require a little bit of work to prepare, but wouldn’t your kids love them!?

Another way to use up those juicy blueberries this summer, these blueberry muffins would be so cute in little paper bags.
