4th of July Dishes

I was originally going to post a dish that's uber healthy, but I just remembered this weekend is 4th of July. So I thought I would post a couple 4th of July dessert ideas from other blogs. Things are going to be pretty quiet around here, considering the ban on fireworks and all. :( But that doesn't mean I can't have a bbq or make some delicious desserts, especially if they look like these ones:

 Red White and Blue Raspberry Candy Bars from Cherry Tea Cakes
Don't those just look amazing? The minute I saw these I dropped off the couch and headed towards the kitchen to make these. Turns out I didn't have enough time to make these before I had to leave. Oh well, maybe tomorrow and hopefully in time for 4th of July.

Fourth of July Jello Shots from Bakers Royale
I don't think I would use the vodka (minor, remember!), but they layering is absolutely gorgeous!

He he he, I guess I should've put my picture first since it's the lamest....But it tasted pretty good! Plus, it's the only 4th of July dessert I had. 

Fruit salad from Whole Foods
If you're not in the mood to turn on the stove or oven, then why not try this fresh fruit salad. Plus, if you top with some freshly whipped cream (yum, btw) it will be a refreshing summer dessert!


  1. I don't like jello, but everything else looks really good! I really want to try the ice cream cake and the fruit salad!

  2. I love the colours on those food items, truly these are 4th of July recipes.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love to hear from you :)
