Friday Favorites, 7.1.11

Happy 4th of July weekend!

I'm about to head to the airport to fly out of town for a wedding in Ohio this weekend, so this post is going to be short and sweet (literally). I'm going to share some sweet recipes with you that I'd like to be making this weekend but won't be due to our travels!

But maybe if you're still looking for some dessert recipes to make for this patriotic holiday, perhaps you can get some ideas from these delicious looking red, white, and blue goodies....

What's the 4th of July without apple pie? (notice that rhyme? :))

This appetizing photo is from Annie's Eats...

Or maybe a flag cake? This is a classic dessert idea for this holiday. I've always wanted to make a flag cake but still haven't! And this one pictured below is actually made of cupcakes! Neat.

Pizza! The dessert kind, of course. :)

Jello always allows for creativity. Check out these stained glass jello stars from Brown Eyed Baker.

Speaking of jello, here's a fun patriotic dessert I made for the 4th last year. It was a hit!

And don't forget breakfast with these strawberry blueberry yogurt muffins from yours truly. :)

I have several recipes in the line-up, waiting to be shared with you... Hopefully I'll have more time next week to blog!

Have a wonderful holiday, all!


  1. Aw I loved this post! You just got me super excited to bake for the holiday :)

    PS - just read your "about" and it was like reading my life! i went to college in boston, grew up in CT and now live in NJ :) I'm a northeastern girl through and through and I ADORE baking :)

  2. Ooo have fun at the wedding! I didn't think people got married on 4th of July weekend, but it would be pretty cool to share your anniversary with the nation's birth. :P

    This is one awesome round-up! I love all of these festive desserts!

  3. Cait, great to hear that we have similar stories and share a love for baking!! I really love your blog :) Joanne, thanks as always for stopping by - just enjoyed reading your latest post now that I'm back from the wedding!
