Why this recipe represents the holiday:
4th of July is a very memorable weekend for me every year.  My family piles in the car and we head to the Jersey shore to go camping.  We eat ice cream in the afternoon and make smores by the fire at night, too of my favorite things to eat.  Over the winter it seems that 4th of July can’t come fast enough.  This recipe represents a little “4th” on a cold December day. Enjoy!
