Perfect for any party, especially for the 4th of July, you can aslo drizzle with balsamic glaze (we love DeLallo brand), just in case you like those flavors. We do! 

Adding glaze does make them a little messier.

Hospitality goals

One of our dreams when moving to Bend 5 years ago, was to have a house large enough for our family to flourish, as well as a great place to host and experience community. Getting together in a cozy atmosphere is actually … quite lovely. And we love our back deck for hosting!

Happy 4th of July week ahead, and happy hosting with your loved ones … or neighbors or new friends?

Don’t get stuck always doing the same thing year after year!

Change it up!
