Happy Independence Day!

We wish everyone a safe and Happy Fourth of July.

The Fourth of July holiday took on a special meaning for me two years ago. I refer to my daughter as my “Star-Spangled Baby” since her birthday is July 3rd. In celebration of our nation’s independence and my little person’s second trip around the sun I am sharing easy kebab recipes that all ages can enjoy.
