The 4th is Coming, the 4th is Coming! Patriotic Recipes

If you are still looking for ideas to celebrate the 4th of July, we have you covered! We have recipes, crafts, decoration ideas and more!

   Show off your patriotic side with lots of red white and blue. I have a dinner salad for you as well as plenty of sweet treats! Get the best recipes for Memorial Day, Independence Day, Veteran's Day and more.

    I had so much fun joining Jan from Tip Garden, Val from Corn, Beans, Pigs and Kids and Nicole from Tales of a Kansas Farm Mom to bring you some Father's Day Favorites.  There were some really great tips for making dad feel special on his day.  But now it is time to turn our attention to the 4th of July!  

     Are you doing anything special for the 4th?   We usually have some sort of BBQ.  This year we are going all out and my brother is roasting a hog!  That's right, a good ol' fashion pig pickin! We can't wait!!

     No matter what you are doing, it is time to pull out all of the red, white and blue.  Here are some of our favorite recipes:

Red, White and Blue No Churn Ice Cream - This red, white and blue no churn ice cream is super easy to make and so patriotic. Make a batch for Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veteran's Day. Then go ahead and make a batch for all of the days in between as well!

Red White and Blueberry Dinner Salad - This dinner salad is perfect for Memorial Day, the 4th or July or any day! It is full of berries, cheese, greens, and chicken.  There is also a homemade dressing recipe if you'd like!

Easy No Bake Two Bite Berry Pie - These Two Bite Pies are perfect for Memorial Day, the 4th of July or any summer BBQ or potluck. Make the filling ahead of time for a great easy treat!

Red, White and Blueberry Sourdough Waffles - Are you looking for new things to do with your sourdough starter? These blueberry waffles are just the thing! Serve with strawberries and maple whipped cream for a patriotic treat or just enjoy with some syrup for a weekend breakfast or brunch delight!

Sand Torte - This cake has a very fine, sand-like crumb.  I think you may find the list of ingredients surprising too.  It is a classic cake refreshed!

Presidential Blueberry Bundt Cake - This recipe is adapted from the White House Pastry Chef's recipe for blueberry bundt cake. It is delicious, easy and perfect for spring, President's Day or 4th of July!
