This week, we have Fourth of July savory and sweet recipes. Here's what's dishing on the blogs we follow:
For Fourth of July, our local bloggers are grilling hot dogs! Haute Pepper Bites opted for the mighty Chicago Style Hot Dogs, while The Hungry Hounds went with gourmet Loaded Hot Dogs. In terms of side dishes, Jessica from How Sweet It Is made a filling Bacon Blue Potato Salad with Soft Boiled Eggs, and Chef Chuck whipped up a fresh Pico De Gallo Salad at Cooks and Eats.
Our holiday dessert and drink menu is also laden with goodness! Yum Yum baked a tasty and Fresh Strawberry Pie, whereas the Brown Eyed Baker came up with festive Red, White & Blue Finger Jello. To wash it all down, try the colorful Red, White & Blue Layered Drinks from the Brown Eyed Baker or the boozy Strawberry Gin Slushies from How Sweet It Is.
On the restaurant scene, the girls from eatPGH sampled the food at PJ's Bar-B-Q & Steak House in Center Township; Chef Chuck from Cooks and Eats enjoyed a delicious meal at Bistecca at the Meadowlands; Yum Yum lunched at Bob's Kennedy Diner in McKees Rocks; Good Food Pittsburgh listed the new summer additions to Bistro 19's menu; Hal B. Klein at Pittsburgh Magazine shared his thoughts about Pittsburgh restaurants; and Three Dogs BBQ headed to Covington, Va., for the Covington Cork and Pork Festival.
Happy Fourth of July and see you here next week!
