Fourth of July Craft & Recipe Round-up -- A Little Birdie Told Me...No. 27



Our 3rd Annual 4th of July Chili Cook-off was a big success!  There were FIFTEEN incredible chilis ranging from beef and chicken classics to chili verde, Portuguese sausage, and a vegetarian sweet potato-black bean. 

Bevbar7The WATERMELON MARGARITAS from Yesterday on Tuesday were a huge hit!  The recipe is simple, delicious, and is a definite crowd-pleaser!  

I look forward to sharing all the details on how to host your own 4th of July Chili Cook-off, and share some of the winning recipes as well.
