Happy Fourth!

Fresh Berry Pie (add Blueberry this time around)

Dorie Greenspan's Apple Pie (with a to die for crust)

I hope you're having a great start to the holiday weekend! We are going to have a little 'staycation' ourselves and I'm super excited. Strawberries are $0.77/pound again at Sprouts and the Fourth of the July is the perfect excuse to make any of these bright and festive desserts. We don't have any big traditions besides seeing a movie and going swimming, but I'm thinking I should get working on that (and strawberries should really be involved, or peaches, or maybe watermelon? I love that part of summer!) Do you have any awesome Fourth of July traditions? Speak up!


  1. What a beautiful post with so many lovely desserts to choose from. Being British I tend to keep a low profile this holiday weekend! - but hoping you will have a lovely time!

  2. Yum to all of it! Happy 4th, Anne!

  3. Oh, look at all those beautiful desserts. I want to make all of them.

  4. Eveyone if these recipes look wonderful and strawberries are my favorite! But I would love to try the red velvet cupcakes! That is actually a great gift idea! Thanks for sharing!!
