Red, White and Blue Desserts

Red, White and Blue Dessert Recipes

The Fourth of July is just a few weeks away, which means it’s time to start planning a patriotic party menu complete with a sweet finale starring red, white and blue desserts. I’m heading home to San Diego for the festivities, and I’m counting down the minutes until a little rest and relaxation poolside and so. much. furriness.

Fire up the grill, grab the homemade burger buns and then sit back and relax as you snack on a few of my July 4th favorites.

What’s on your July 4th menu?
