This week, we have an eclectic menu for the Fourth of July weekend! Here's what's dishing on the blogs we follow:

To start the celebrations off, Bill from Three Dogs BBQ prepared a homemade Potato Salad to go with a good barbecue meal this Independence Day. Jessica from How Sweet It Is put together a vividly colorful Caramelized Peach Caprese with Smoked Sea Salt, and Chef Chuck offered us a heart-healthy Tuna Tartare at Cooks and Eats.

On the main course list, I made vibrant and vegetarian Spaghetti with Parsley Pesto at Simply Romanesco, while Linda from Dinner Plan-it cooked a satisfying and Easy Asian Spicy Shrimp and Chicken. And for a sweet finish to this delightful meal, you must try Brown Eyed Baker's festive Ice Cream Truffles. If this is not enough, check out Katy's Best 4th of July Party Recipes at BakingDomesticityandAllThingsMini!

Lastly, on the restaurant scene, D&T: in the burgh lunched at Gaucho Parrilla Argentina in the Strip District; Yum Yum tried the Voodoo Doughnut in Portland, Ore.; and Pittsburgh Magazine encouraged us to discover the delicious concoctions of Pittsburgh Pie Guy.

Happy Fourth of July and see you here next week!
