Around the Web: July 4th and Best American Recipes

Here’s what’s keeping me occupied on my way out to the beach for fireworks, barbecuing, and all-around relaxation. Have a great 4th!

In the competition to make the best red, white, and blue dessert, TheKitchn’s July 4th trifle gets my vote.

Indoor s’mores, which take the form of chocolate bark.

How to tell if your avocado is ripe without cutting into it, long before a hard avocado thwarts your guacamole making.
