While it definitely won’t be a “normal” summer here, we’re planning to keep up the tradition of patriotic cookouts for Memorial Day and the 4th of July – even if it is just the four of us. I love hanging on the deck with a spread of red, white, and blue food and since it’s social distancing approved, I’m leaning in!
Whether you’re celebrating with just your immediate family or you’re able to gather with extended family and friends, I’ve rounded up some fun red, white, and blue-themed food options for you!
Holidays don’t have to be complicated. More and more, I’m embracing simplicity. Yes, the food can be festive – but it doesn’t have to tie you up in the kitchen all day. It’s the people that are important.
This patriotic cake is deceptively simple. A little food coloring takes a boxed cake mix and a jar of icing to a whole other level. You’ll look like you spent all day on this, but you’ll be left with plenty of time to play!
