Red, White and Blue

Posted by in Holidays, The Theme Is...

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Red, White and Blue

Here’s a quickie 4th of July post for you. You probably already have your themed dish for the holiday but we wanted to showcase some really pretty, yummy, and show-stopping red, white and blue recipes. (TK members are just … they’re just awesome. So much talent and creativity, and I’m amazed everyday.)

You can certainly go the savory route and do something like amyh’s Red, White & Blue Nachos or a really cool Patriotic Potato Salad from Mele Cotte. But for this post, we’re going to focus on some colorful desserts.

First, though, we’ll do breakfast. (Though I wouldn’t mind these for dessert, too.)

Then we have cake. Sheet cake, cheesecake, cubed cake in a trifle … you can even just make your favorite cake and decorate away!

Or go the cupcake route. Everybody loves cupcakes.

If you’re aiming for something a bit fancy or unique, try pavlovas or cookie tarts (these use sugar cookies as the base—smart!). And take a look at these pretty shortcakes. I’m telling you. TK members are the best.

And if you want to keep it fairly light, you can pledge your allegiance with fruit. These are so simple—the perfect way to get the kids involved!

LOVE these food pics! I dipped strawberries in white chocolate and paired them with fresh blueberries. That was my red white and blue. Pics are on my sites homepage.

Just… wow. I’m new here and this is my first post. Can I just say that I am in awe of this website!? It’s the most stunning, gorgeous website I’ve ever seen. The content is absorbing, engaging, hilarious, and addictive! And don’t get me started on the photography! I have never seen such extraordinary photographs in my life. Every one is frame-worthy! And never in my life, as the heavens are my witness, have I ever seen such dear people posting. The kindness and sense of community here are overwhelming. If I get started on the recipes, I’ll never stop talking so, suffice it to say, I am well fed and never bored in the kitchen! (The iced coffee recipe was a gift. I made it a week ago and only have half of it left!) Ree, I would wish you all of God’s richest blessings but it’s plain to see that you already have them. And I thank you for sharing them with us. I’ve been sharing this site with everyone I talk to, even total strangers at work. They come back and to tell me that they’re just as enamored with it as I am.

Everything looks wonderful. Love the stawberries. My sister turned me on to strawberries dipped in sour cream rolled in dark brown sugar — don’t sound delic, but is oh so yummy!
