Recipe Round Up: Red, White and Blue Treats

Bet you didn’t see this one coming. Another post about the Fourth of July: recipes for apple pie, mayonnaise-loaded salads and corn on the cob, right? Try Paula Deen for that, SKC has pulled together some twists on summer festive favorites. If you already have a Pinterest board of recipes you’re dying to bring to our nation’s birthday party, you might want to add these.

I’ve never had a mojito I didn’t like and I don’t think this one will break that streak. Mint, simple syrup and blueberry vodka create a refreshing summer cocktail.

Not in the mood to bake a dessert for that 4th of July picnic? This semi-homemade berry trifle makes a beautiful dessert without the long hours in a hot kitchen.

The market stands are overflowing with berries and what better to pair them with than shortcake? Try this vegan version if you want a healthy treat.

There’s always time for a cocktail on a hot summer day. Shake up your lazy afternoon with a pitcher of strawberry basil margaritas to share – or not. (We won’t tell.)

Summer is the perfect setting for campfires and marshmallow roasting. I recently learned that those fluffy white corn syrup puffs can actually be made at home thanks to Marshmallow Madness, the marshmallow cookbook.
