You have to make these Coconut Fruit Popsicles for the Fourth of July! They’re the perfect way to celebrate the holiday with friends and family by the beach, pool or backyard. Not only are they dye free and bright red white and blue, but naturally delicious! I made them last week for the kids and even Gemma who’s 10 months old was gobbling them up (with Chloe’s help of course 😉 as you can see here.

Festive 4th of July Recipes

4th of July Recipes from weelicious.com

It’s that time of year when all you can think about are red, white and blue any and everything. Chloe is obsessed with wearing matching stars and stripes outfits with Gemma, Kenya wants Fourth of July neon light up necklaces and bracelets and I want to cook my heart out with favorites like Blue Corn Chip Crusted Fish Sticks, this delicious gratin, Tomato Bruschetta and parfaits for dessert.

This is the time of year for chasing fire flies (as we’re doing the next two weeks on the East coast), picnicking with friends, staying cool swimming and celebrating a few quiet days in a row.

The best part is that you can slow down to let the kids get involved cooking with you. We’re even putting out a watermelon star and berry bar so the kids can make Magical Fruit Wands. They’re beautiful and the kids love putting magical spells on each other with them. I hope these Festive Fourth of July Recipes give you tons of inspiration for fun and easy cooking projects you can do together!

Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner

Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner recipe from weelicious.com

In the summertime my willingness to spend hours in the kitchen decreases, majorly! I was quickly reminded of this fact on Monday when it was 105 degrees and the idea of making an involved dinner was not on my list of want or have to’s. At this time of year I want Kale Avocado, Lemony Quinoa, Heirloom Tomato and Very Berry Spinach Salad with this ridiculously easy Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner as the star of the show. What’s great about this recipe is the fact that everything cooks on one baking sheet so there’s almost no clean up. I love to use fresh fennel, zucchini and cherry tomatoes, but you can use any vegetables you have on hand. All you need to do is toss everything with a touch of olive oil, a sprinkle of salt and pepper if you desire and pop it in the oven. If you’re like me you want to turn the oven on as little as possible to keep your home cool, so the short cooking time, but high heat is a win win. The salmon becomes crispy and golden with the vegetables just starting...

10 Easy Vegetarian Entrees

10 Vegetarian Entrees from weelicious.com

Today as I walking through the farmers market admiring all of the gorgeous summer fruits and vegetables I realized just how fulfilling vegetarian cuisine can be. My son has been a vegetarian for two years and my husband eats vegan most days (although I can always tempt him with a good piece of fish, pork or steak). With two out of five eaters in our home avoiding fish, poultry and meat most days I’m always looking for quick and down right delicious vegetarian recipes that we will all enjoy. These 10 Easy Vegetarian Entrees are not only tasty, but equally exciting for adults as they are for kids. Vegetarian Chimichangas? Veggie Pot Pies? Veggie Burgers? Forbidden Black Rice Bowls? These aren’t imposters trying to replace meat with vegetables tossed in, these are vegetarian entrees that are bright, fun and downright irresistible no matter what kind of eater you may be!

Whitefish and Crispy Avocado Tacos

Whitefish and Crispy Avocado Tacos recipe from weelicious.com

If there’s one smell that transports me to another country it’s tacos! The smell of fresh tortillas when they’re warmed is as intoxicating to me as a Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake right out of the oven. When I was in 7th grade I was an exchange student living in Mexico with a family who made homemade tortillas every day. Just a whiff of that smell and I feel like I’m right back there. My Mexican mother in Toluca (just south of Mexico City) would use fresh masa to make the softest tortillas and then fill them with anything from pulled pork to steak to making simple chicken and bean quesadillas.

Whitefish and Crispy Avocado Tacos recipe from weelicious.com

Just like myself as a kid, I find that Kenya and Chloe will eat just about anything I put in a tortilla. It’s the perfect canvas for just about anything! I originally started making these Whitefish and Crispy Avocado Tacos for my organic family friendly meal delivery company, One Potato. I wanted to use a white flakey fish and the buttery avocado I was buying at the farmers market....
