Fireworks. BBQs. Cold drinks. Pink noses. And backyard splendor. The first of many summer parties have already begun with July 4th sparking this week. I always find myself simplifying recipes this time of year, which is entirely refreshing. But a couple extra sprigs of herbs in a dish or dessert go a long way to keep the magic of summer alive. I’m bookmarking this Rosemary Lemonade from Ashley of Not Without Salt and this Roasted Onion & Fingerling Potato Salad from Kelly of The Gouda Life.
