  1. You never fail to inspire! What a wonderful collection of recipes. Every single recipe I have made of your creations has been absolutely delicious! Thanks ?

  2. I made your BBQ Pork Sliders last weekend, and not only were all of the elements amazing together (hello, grilled corn, this is the only way I want to eat it from now on), but I used the pork in three subsequent dinners. I put the pork and all accompaniments on rice the next night as a sort of burrito bowl, then I made BBQ pork nachos, and then last night I made savory potato waffles and topped them with the last of the pork. The slow cooker is definitely my friend for the summer! Thank you so much for sharing your no-churn ice creams! I do not have an ice-cream maker, so this is very exciting. 😀

  3. It’s so funny. I was putting together my own menu using your recipe and was definitely planning on the Filipino Adobo Skewers and the Avocado Caprese Pasta Salad! <3 Think I may have to add the Watermelon Cucumber Margaritas after reading this.

  4. I just want to say how much I enjoyed this post and just drooling at your food photography… it’s all so stunning.

  5. How do you choose which to make first??
    They all look so good.
    I think I’ll start with Everything But the Kitchen Sink.

  6. Soooo…I’m invited to your 4th of July gathering, riiiiiight? Mmkay, cool, thanks 😉

    All of these recipes look spectacular, m’dear…the perfect 4th of July menu, indeed!

  7. YAS! To ALL of these! I am REALLY into your zucchini burger! MUST make this weekend!

  8. Though us Canadians don’t celebrate the 4th of July, we will be having our own birthday celebration this weekend… And these all make such lovely Canada Day inspiration! Thank you for putting this together!

  9. Yes!!! I may not live State side at the moment but I’m definitely feeling like celebrating the occasion anyway after seeing all of these incredible recipes, Tieghan!
