A Taste of Independence

Hello friends! 

Today is my Friday, so it's been a great day so far. We're heading up to Tahoe tonight, but we're not really in a hurry. The traffic in the Bay Area has been horrendous this week due to the BART strike. So in addition to the usual Friday traffic, you can add holiday traffic and the increase in commute traffic due to the lack of public transportation. We plan on eating dinner at home and taking our time getting out of the city. Hopefully that way we'll miss the peak traffic times. 

For all of you last minute planners like myself, I've complied a few fun recipes that will be great to bring to a party or pot luck tomorrow! I can't wait to try a few of them myself, the goat cheese crostini looks especially delicious. 

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13

For all of my Bay Area friends, here is a link to the best spots to see the fireworks around the Bay. 

I also saw this on Outside Magazine, a great resource for some of the best Firework shows. Something to keep in mind when planning for next summer...

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday tomorrow! I'll see you all back here on Monday! Enjoy the long weekend!




  1. Happy 4th! Enjoy your long weekend.

  2. YUM! So many great recipes!
