The Perfect Fourth Of July Party Pleaser

The Fourth of July is all about Red, White, and Bikinis....right?! While we want to look flawless in those bikinis, it's easy to give into our inner Carbie Barbie and reach for the barbecued ribs, potato chips, and vanilla ice cream (don't forget to use your handy dandy Carb Control.)

However, if you want to try to eat on the healthier side (while still eating equally delicious, patriotic foods) we've got you covered with one of our all time favorite recipes. This Blueberry Compote is super versatile, and something the whole family is sure to love! Here's two of our favorite ways to enjoy it.
