Patriotic Recipes Perfect for Memorial Day

Memorial Day Weekend is upon us!

Since Mother Nature has finally agreed to Summer weather -- Let's fire up the grill, call some friends and soak up some vitamin D!

If you're needing a little dessert inspiration, see below for three of our favorite patriotic recipes.

We hope these treats help you celebrate both in style and in taste!

For the busy:


These individual fruit pizzas couldn't be easier or quicker to prepare!  Simply purchase a dozen freshly baked sugar cookies, 1-2 cream cheese frosting containers, and a few cartons of blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries.

Let the kids have fun making their own fruit pizzas and save yourself the hassle of making a dessert.  It's a win-win in our book!

For the health conscious:

Is anyone else thankful that fruit comes in patriotic colors?

Pick up some wooden skewers, fresh blueberries, strawberries, and bananas, and get stacking!  Make sure to make extras as these easy and healthy fruit skewers will be a fan favorite.  Find exact instructions here.

For the baker:

Though we haven't personally made this fresh berry tart before, it sure looks delicious - Doesn't it?!  Tangy and sweet with its mascarpone cream, fresh fruit, apricot jam, and buttery light crust... This dessert sounds like a decadent dream.  Find the recipe here.

Have a fun and relaxing holiday weekend, friends!

I'll be keeping Kleenex in business since Mira is graduating (Loyola Academy - Class of 2018) on Saturday afternoon and my niece is getting married Saturday night.
