Tasty Tuesday: Red, White and Blue

Here are some fun red, white and blue food ideas just in time for our 4th of July celebrations next week!  If you’re headed out to a picnic, BBQ or potluck just whip up one of these delicious concoctions to take with you.

1) Fruit & Cheese Plates

Seasonal fruits and finger foods like blueberries, watermelon chunks, strawberries, bananas and a selection of cheeses can be displayed in the shape of a flag like this cute watermelon and cheese tray I found at Blush Printables.  Fresh fruit trays are super easy to throw together and are always crowd pleasers.

2) Patriotic Cupcakes

I love these red, white and blue cupcakes from Grin and Bake It where they used food coloring and white cake batter to make tri-color treats.  This would be fun to do in other colors at different times of the year, like maybe pink and purple for my daughters’ birthday.

3) Berry Cheesecake Pie

This Berry Cheesecake Pie from Natalie’s Killer Cuisine combines three of my favorite things – pie, cheesecake and fresh fruit!  I can’t wait to try out this recipe and I’m sure it will be a big hit with the kids.  How cute are those pie crust stars?

4) Hand Dipped Fruit

Strawberries dipped in white chocolate and then blue sprinkles like these from Katie Mahoney Photography are a creative take on the fruit plate theme and they just made it onto my ‘to do’ list.

5) Pancakes

What a great idea for a home cooked breakfast on the 4th – these patriotic pancakes from I Am Mommy are perfect for both kids and adults.  You could also consider adding the blueberries to the batter.

6) Parfaits

Fruity parfaits are easy to put together in a patriotic theme, and these Panna Cotta Shooters from Sprinkle Bakes are a great way to mix a dessert and a cocktail.  The confetti stars are a nice touch and they’re almost too pretty to eat.

7) Patriotic PB&Js

Patriotic peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made like this cream cheese and jam version that Deborah at Taste and Tell blog found, are a very creative way of serving lunch to a crowd or you could do this on toast in the morning for breakfast.

I highly recommend Plan to Eat for a great place to store all your favorite recipes! Check it out with a free trial and see how easy it is to add recipes from the Internet, plan meals for your family and even print out a handy grocery list.

Have a Safe & Happy 4th!

Happy birthday America!  Have a safe and happy Independence Day everyone!
