What I'm Making... for the Fourth of July

Happy weekend y'all!  I'm so happy to be enjoying my last low key weekend before the Bar Exam, which is less than a month away.  We are going to to two gatherings for the Fourth, one Sunday and one Monday, so I've decided to make a dessert that will be easy to bring to both.  Many of you know that I'm obsessed with everything that Our Best Bites makes, but these little cuties were just too much to resist!

I'm going to put my own little spin on them of course, by making the blueberry and cherry and then making buttermilk pies as well.  And I'll be making all of the components as opposed to using refrigerated pie crust, canned filling, etc.  But, if you need a last minute dessert idea, I think they will turn out adorable and delicious either way!

Then, I'll also be making an appetizer that is so easy it barely needs a recipe.  This easy peasy corn dip is so delicious and seriously addictive. 

Spicy Creamy Corn Dip

  • 1 8 oz container of sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cans mexican corn
  • 4 scallions
  • 1 can diced green chiles
  • 1 and 1/4 cups shredded mexican style mixed or cheddar cheese
  • 3 jalapenos
Directions:  Roughly chop scallions.  Seed and dice the 3 jalapenos.  Then combine and mix all ingredients in a large bowl.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours to allow flavors to combine (this last step isn't absolutely necessary but I prefer to).  Serve with tortilla chips... I like the little scoops ones!

I hope y'all all have a wonderful holiday weekend and I'd love to hear what recipes you made.
