Red White & Blue Recipes to Honor America’s Veterans

This is a totally impromptu post and I’m getting a little more personal than usual (I know this is where everyone starts thinking I’m about to share something juicy). October and November have been crazy months and I’ve been a bit off my blogging game- struggling to either create content or honestly, I haven’t had the time/motivation to write here lately. Just keepin’ it real, y’all. But I do have some exciting things coming later in the month, including a review of a dear friend and colleague’s book all about Fertility Nutrition, an amazing and satisfying salad that will be perfect for your Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving AND a very special post for Giving Tuesday. But in the meantime, I wanted to throw together a few recipes- one new and many old, to honor our great nation’s veterans and also recognize the 242nd United States Marine Corps birthday!

Rocking the Red White & Blue in current day!
I have a special place in my heart for Marines (or affectionately known as jarheads) because Mr. KISS in the Kitchen served in the Marine Corps for over a decade before switching over to the dark side ;).. the Army. We remain a military family and know very well the blessings and burdens that come with the honor of defending America. So in honor of all those who have served, still serving, military families and for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice, here are some of my favorite KISS in the Kitchen red, white and/or blue recipes!
