With July 4th just around the corner, it seems fit that our minds think first of the men and women in the Armed Forces who have given, or are giving, tremendous sacrifices to ensure our independence and freedoms as Americans.

For many, this weekend will be filled with celebration. Some plan on taking youngsters to parades through small towns and large cities, collecting candy and memories with each passing float. Others can’t wait for the fireworks celebrations taking place all over the country, in back yards and city centers, lighting up the night sky is an all-time favorite Fourth of July pastime. For most of us, celebrating means that at some point, we will come together with family, friends and neighbors for a good old fashioned cookout.

I was thinking about just that today and wondered if there are any new and delicious recipes that would be worth trying out this weekend. The catch is that they would have to be super easy and fast, because time will at a premium! I did a little searching and this is what I found….

Another quick and cute treat is the patriotic ice-cream sandwich…simply unwrap pre-made ice cream images (2)sandwiches, allow them to soften just enough to roll in red, white and blue sprinkles and re-freeze.

Another cute, fast and easy treat! Just be careful- if your party is serving adult beverages and children are around, that everything is kept separate!





A wonderfully simple desert that my family loves is trifle. It is very download (6)simple to layer prepackaged white cake, such as angel food cake, cut into cubes, with strawberries, blue berries and whipped cream. You can even add vanilla pudding if you like it that way. YUM!
