So I am out here in Fire Island, and it’s almost July 4th, which means it’s almost my niece’s tenth birthday. That’s a big deal, not only because it’s her tenth birthday, but because I always make her birthday cake for her.
This year, like every year, I’m going to make some sort of awesome concoction covered in candy—anything to make her smile.
And she loves her sweets, so I know I gotta bring it.
I thought it’d be a really fun challenge this week to reimagine a July 4th classic dish that your family makes, or to make something special this week/weekend for somebody in your life that celebrates July 4th and the summer—whatever it might be.
I just think that it’s really fun—even pregnant—to share love through food. And that’s what I plan to do with my cake. I’d love to see what you guys cook up and who that might make smile in your family.
Alright, I’ll see what you guys are doing in a few! Bye!
