5 Patriotic Recipes

June 11, 2013


Summertime is just full of fun reasons to celebrate America. Don’t wait until Independence Day to try one of these fun recipes for your next get together with friends.

Martha Stewart Star Spangled Shortcake

How can you go wrong with Martha? This shortcake is sweet,
but not so sweet your dentist comes running. Just right for hot summer days.

Stained Glass Jell-o from Julie’s Eats and Treats.

There’s always room for Jell-o. It’s time the younger generation (under 50 in this case) learns the art of Jell-o. Snack, dessert, salad and art – Jell-o covers all the bases. This recipe mimics stained glass, so you feel self-rightous just eating it!
Red, white and blue potatoes.

This Red White and Blue Potato Salad comes from the web site, Proud Italian Cook.

Starchy blue food wins in my book any day! Are the blue potatoes
healthier for you than the white? Just wondering.

The web site, My Baking Addiction, provided this Star Decorated Cheesecake.
Now you know this star design could be done on top of a store bought cheesecake. Not that I would ever do that, but my cousin Rosie Belle from Robertsdale would do it in a heartbeat. Just make sure you hide the box way down deep in the garbage can.
And if anyone puts you on the spot and asks if you made it yourself, give them the smallest slice.

Big Bear’s Wife has come up with Independence Punch for your beverage dispenser.

This looks fun. I may have to give it a try – more science experiment than recipe.

Do any of these look good to you?
Happy summer cooking!

  1. Cheers for the USA! Can’t decide which I like better, your photos or your captions. I love your blog!!

  2. I found your blog via Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality. I was pleasantly surprised to see that you are in Fairhope AL. Many years ago, we lived in Loxley AL. My dad was in the trucking business and we were there to haul locally harvested potatoes. I even started school there in the 8th grade! I recall Fairhope, Foley and Bay Minette as well. We occasionally drove to Mobile for shopping. I remember my AL days fondly and am so pleased to have found your blog and now I can visit again! I don’t have a blog but thoroughly enjoy visiting several. I have subscribed to yours and now I won’t miss any of your posts. I live in West TN about halfway between Memphis and Nashville-do you ever travel this way?

  3. “Give them the smallest slice” you are so slyly funny but right. If my people get a fresh peach crumble with blueberries they will consider themselves very fortunate indeed.
