  • Favorite foods for the Fourth of July

    It’s the Fourth of July and all around us fireworks are blasting off, and grills draw the master chefs out in the family. But what I remember most about the holiday is a few treats my mom would always include — bomb pops and potato sticks.

    The bomb pops were a welcome respite during the high heat of the day. Our hands would be sticky from the frozen sugar water that would melt faster than we could eat.

    The potato sticks accompanied our watching neighborhood fireworks after my dad set off his supply earlier in the evening. My mom would heat up the potato sticks in a Pyrex dish for 30 seconds in the microwave. They were delicious!
