We don't need a reason to eat burgers and cupcakes, but we'll take any one we can get. While we might not always have the weather for it, the 4th of July is a great excuse to break out the BBQ - or griddle pan - and get baking some fudgey brownies and cream pies. 

So whether you're a meat lover or vegetarian, have a sweet tooth or not, we have a recipe for you.
