A Fourth of July tradition dear to my heart is the annual party given by my friends John and Terry. We have been a part of it for the past 30 years, give or take a few missed ones. Things change from year to year, whether it be moving to different towns, kids growing up, or jobs changing, but two things that stay the same are the excellent company and the delicious food John & Terry serve. We all bring appetizers and desserts, and this year I’m going to steer away from the norm and bring a little “pop” to the party!!! Seems appropriate, yes?
We photographed this recipe for the Popcorn Board back in December, and we thought it would be a perfect sweet treat for the Fourth since Heather propped it with an all-American theme.
Parties, pools, baseball, fireworks, and popcorn—what could be better than that! Enjoy this recipe — I know John and Terry’s guests will!!!
