Traditional hamburgers and hot dogs are always a safe bet at 4th of July cookouts. Then there are the sides, which I get most excited about. I typically stick with bringing one of those or some sort of dessert, and leave the grilling to someone else. I usually spend way too much time on Pinterest searching for the perfect dish to make. I then find several that make me drool and have a difficult time deciding. I like my food to not only taste good but also look pretty as well, especially when it comes to festive holidays. Often times I end up choosing the well styled foods that look the prettiest in the photos. So, if you're looking for the perfect red, white and blue recipes that are beautiful enough to serve during this holiday weekend, I've got you covered. I can't promise that some of these might not turn out to be Pinterest fails, but they all look pretty darn good to me.
