Happy 4th of July to everyone back in America. It's a bittersweet day for me today, since there are no Independence Day celebrations to attend here in Oxford (although Sunday an American friend may have a BBQ). Greek-Americans are insane when it comes to today's festivities. It's double the pleasure for anyone attending a BBQ like that of my parents. You get not only the classic American hamburgers, corn-on-the-cob, grilled vegetables, and cupcakes, but also all the common Greek mezes on top of that (and my dad's legendary shish kebabs). You're never left hungry, I tell ya'.
Here's a beautiful Red, White, and Blue Ice Cream Cake recipe I found on Epicirious. Looks pretty stunning.
