    Happy 4th of July!

    I’m spending the whole day in the lab. The same would apply to my country’s independence day which is on the 22nd of September if it weren’t the autumnal equinox day which is a national holiday in Japan 🙂 But this year it’s also Saturday so…

    I’m so gutted that I won’t be in America for 4th July. I normally make it over twice a month but just didn’t work out this month 🙁 being British we don’t have an independence day seeing as people tend to be celebrating independence from us (sorry for the past guy :s) I suppose we take any excuse to party as it is!!

    Really need to get round to making those lemon squares…

    ZOMG! I want them ALL! I have a gluten/soy/rice/dairy/nut intolerance so a lot of these, I can actually make (or sub something subtle) but I have no ingredients and I am SO LAZY today! Haha, I am just going to go lay in my neighbors pool and hope they want to make me something 🙂

    i made your single lady banana bread this morning!!!! it was so yummy 🙂 i did not have a mini loaf pan so i just doubled the batch. i also added some oats and chia seeds for more texture and instead of apple sauce used greek yougurt. it is a great recipe and i can not wait to share it with others 🙂

    They look great! I’m loving your website. I make your 5 minute chocolate bars for everyone, all the time!

    As for independence day, we don’t have that here in the Netherlands. Instead we celebrate on Queen’s Day, which is our Queen’s birthday. It used to change dates as our Queen changed, but our current Queen decided to leave it on her mother’s birthday, April 30. With our current Queen being born on January 31, she thought that wouldn’t make such a nice party time given the cold weather. We celebrate with a country-wide flea market, parties, festivals, etc on the streets.

    Also being a Canadian, I noticed from misconceptions above- as of 1867 Canada became a Dominion in the British Empire (later the Commonwealth), however we still maintain the British Queen and her representatives in Canada as our Head of State (as does Australia). Therefore, we are not ‘part of’ Great Britain but do share a special link as we have a shared Head of State. This is different than many other Commonwealth countries who do not have the Queen as their Head.

    In the past two days I have made:
    Lightened Up Corn Casserole
    Crazy-Good Ranch Dressing
    Chocolate Cake [with a crazy ingredient]
    Single Lady Cupcakes
    “Banana Split” Chocolate Butter

    It’s been fun. 😀 I made the whole family (including my dad who DETESTS health food) try the chocolate cake. Everybody loved it! The only thing that didn’t turn out was the “Banana Split” Chocolate Butter. I think I just might not be a bananas and peanut butter and chocolate person. 😛

    Thanks again for the super fun recipes.

    I’m going to make the 4th of July “Chocolate Covered Katie Day” and make one of these suggestions for each meal.

    Yummy, everything looks wonderful! The buffalo chickpea chili, brownie batter dip, fruit pizza, sweet potato brownies, apple pie, and sweet potato burgers are definitely on my bucket list! Have an INCREDIBLE Fourth of July celebration!
