July 4th Recipes

What's more American than red, white and blue and root beer? Hmm, maybe apple pie? Here are two desserts that I made last year for our family 4th of July celebration. Lemon desserts are some of my favorite to eat, especially when paired with fresh berries. These Red, White and Blue Lemon Berry Bars were not only festive, they were so tasty!

I absolutely loved the Chocolate Rootbeer Bundt Cake because it tasted so chocolaty and had a great rootbeer flavor. Amazingly enough, the flavors really go well together.

Below I have listed some of my favorites that are sure to be crowd pleasers at your July 4th celebration. Hope you have a great holiday!


S'mores Bars, Pops, and Ice Cream
Berry Cheesecake Ice Cream
Lemonade Cake
Raspberry Almond Cookie Bars

Dinner & Sides
