Everyone loves the themed food that comes with Holidays ranging from Halloween to the Fourth of July. I love cooking fun desserts to bring to potlucks or hosting friends and family at home. Not only is it fun to make cute little desserts that follow the holiday theme, but friends and family are always so impressed!
When it comes to the 4th of July, making absolutely anything patriotic by adding in red, white, and blue is as simple as can be! Think of all the different fruits and flavors that contain these colors and can be incorporated into almost any dish! From strawberries and blueberries to coconut and whipped cream, the possibilities are endless!
