Each year I prepare for holidays by looking up some favorite recipes, or finding new ones!

Listen, it's been a stressful year, and Susie zone is a safe and judgement free zone. So, before you go shopping for Independance Day, here are just a few more things to snag before leaving the store.
The best part about this, is you can make it kid friendly too, just by omitting the alcohol. So here,we,go!
