Red, White and Blue Berries

The 4th of July is right around the corner!!  I don’t know about you, but we have a big barbeque with lots of festive food!  I love really easy ideas.  When I was serving berries for breakfast the other day, I added whipped cream for my hubby (it’s the only way he’ll eat them) and I notice – hey – these are red, white and blue!


I’m sure it’s not a unique idea – I bet if you search pintrest you’ll see it in a hundred places, but here you have it.  Just strawberries (or raspberries), blueberries and some bright white whipping cream!  A festive dessert.

Want to garnish your drinks for the holiday?


Slice some BIG strawberries into thick slices.  Using a star shaped cookie cutter, cut them into stars.  Thread them onto skewers with blueberries and pop them into the drinks you serve!  (This is lemon juice with 4 Tablespoons sugar dissolved in it, topped with sparkling water and berries.)
