It's that time of year again, July 4th week. And while many of us in New York City are heading out of town, many more are staying in the city and barbecuing in parks, backyards, rooftops and fire escapes (be careful!)

We love holidays because they give us the opportunity to play with our food! And you can, too. Make your July 4th party festive and fun by whipping up one of these recipes we found on Pinterest.
