We all grieved on Tuesday when the the USA's World Cup journey came to an end but the holiday weekend is upon us with a reason to celebrate once more. Here are a few fun links to browse before you head off for those fiestas and fireworks. See you back here next week. Happy Fourth of July!

While the rain pours, we'll be whipping up some patriotic treats and stocking every basket and bag with a few of these delicious, portable bites so that we're ready to go when this weather finally clears.

And if time permits, perhaps we'll make a batch of this--sure to come in handy when Monday morning rolls around!

Happy 4th of July!
