5 Patriotic Sweets and Treats Perfect for Your Memorial Day
Why not start the day off right, with a patriotic stack of regular and red velvet pancakes, courtesy of I am Baker? Those little blueberries on top are just the cutest!
I’m always looking for healthy treats to offset all the gorgeous sweets. Add a little patriotic flair to your lunch or for a pot-luck with this watermelon, feta cheese, and blueberry flag. Kids young and old are bound to love it! (as seen at Wenderly)
I don’t know about you, but our neighborhood seems to be setting off fireworks all summer long. Simulate bottle rockets and other fireworks with push pops and cheesecake skewers from Kitchen Fun with My Three Sons and the Lady Behind the Curtain.
What’s more American than pie, right? How about finishing off the day with this patriotic cherry pie from the Larson Lingo? If cherry isn’t your favorite, substitute any red berry combination to get the same effect.
