This drink was in a Family Fun magazine a few years ago. When poured carefully, this makes a red, white and blue drink for any star-spangled occasion. It separates by using the drink with the highest sugar content on the bottom, and the least on top.
This recipe was a big hit with my toughest critics, my in-laws. I am always in charge of making the dessert for family gatherings and I needed something new for this year's Fourth of July. So with some creativity and good fortune I came up with Strawberry Dreams. The red, white & blue finish is enticing to the eye and even more pleasing to the taste. Enjoy!
This recipe is from Splenda.com. It is very easy to make and delicious. A great summertime treat for fresh berries and the presentation is so elegant. This would be a great tart for the 4th of July. The recipe calls for a premade crust. I used Flaky Pie Crust Recipe #20984 by Teresa M.
We had a block party for Memorial Day and I brought this jello dessert. You can buy the actual mold from www.kraftfoods.com/jello/ for $3.50. I got the jello mold free for buying jello at my local grocery store, which included several recipes. If you don't have the mold, use a pan that has a 10 cup capacity.
Follow directions as closely as you can as the consistency of the jello is very important.
Please note that you can use (2) 4 serving size packages or (1) 8 serving size packages of jello for the red and blue layers.
This will be a hit at your next holiday gathering!
This recipe is a lower fat cheese pie using mini marshmallows which has no fat and keeps the pie vey light and fluffy.
Can be made the day before.
Nice for the 4th of July with the red, white and blue theme. And easy to take to parties, picnics....
This is so good and so pretty! It's bright blue and the grenadine makes a bright red layer at the bottom of the glass! Be sure to serve it in a glass martini glass to get the great effect! I served this at our 4th party and received many raves. This is my first post - hope you like it.
This was from our local paper around the 4th of July, for a holiday snack. It was easy and delicious! You could probably sub. homemade granola for the pecan sandies and it would still be great. The prep time is a guess as I don't remember how long it took.
Patriotic cupcakes that can be used for any occasion. You can always substitute your own recipe for white cake and white frosting. In regards to the comment below, I went back to the original recipe to check and it does call for 2 tablespoons of batter per color -- I have never had any problems and I actually get 12 cupcakes out of this recipe. I use scant tablespoons. If anyone is worried, try it with teaspoons instead of tablespoons or even 1 tablespoon of the batters per cupcake.
This cake is different in that it has red, white and blue sprinkles which makes it perfect for 4th of July! Change the color of the sprinkles and you can use this for any celebration!
And now a little history:
Angel food cake is also called ice cream cake (a Pennsylvania Dutch wedding cake). It is felt that the abundance of cake molds in southeastern Pennsylvania, one of the major producer of cake molds, indicates that the angel food cake originated there in the early 1800s.
Some historians think that the first angel food cakes were probably baked by African-American slaves from the South because making this cake required a strong beating arm and lots of labor to whip the air into the whites. Angel food cakes are also a traditional African-American favorite for post-funeral feasting.
I made this up off the top of my head for Independence Day, but it could be used as a light refreshing summer dessert. Not exactly nutritious, but light cream cheese and skim milk make it not too unhealthy. It's very nice with a cold glass of milk, I'm sure it'd be delicious with other fruits, but I recommend using fresh over frozen!
Happy Independence Day Everyone!!! This is not too time consuming, but worth every minute spent. A great jello salad for celebrating July 4th. Make sure to read the directions carefully and dont start the next layer until the previous one is solid.
