It is almost the Fourth of July, and most of us in the U.S. are experiencing hot weather. It has actually been overcast and drizzling the last few days here in Oregon, but our weather forecast for the Fourth is somewhat promising. Regardless, the celebrations will go on!  I like to make food for parties that is delicious and made with natural ingredients.


Here are a couple of ideas for both at-home celebrations or to bring along to a party.

Strawberry Fool dessert

Naturally-Sweetened Sweets

Apple and Avocado salad



Cold Brew Coffee



Now, I just need to figure out what to personally make this year! What are your plans?
