Happy Fourth of July to those here in the U.S.A. And Happy Wednesday to everyone else! I've gathered up a collection of fun Fourth of July food projects. My Mom keeps trying to convince me that cooking is a form of craft and she might be winning!
The fruit on top almost makes me think I can call this a healthy cupcake! Almost. You can find all the nutritional information and the instructions on the Kitchen Daily blog. Although I have to tell you that the instructions are a little big hilarious. One of the ingredients is "12 cupcakes." So the instructions are pretty much only for assembling the cupcakes, which is the crafty part anyways!
I am actually a huge fan of watermelon and feta cheese together. But I know that not everyone is, so you could replace the feta with apple cubes (skin off, obviously) or banana chunks. You can find the instructions and lots of process pics on the Wenderly Design blog.
One of my all time favorite drinks comes from a little restaurant near me that I love, called Vynl. They have a watermelon lemonade which is yummy, but also just looks so cool. The watermelon juice and the lemonade don't mix. So when the drink arrives it looks so pretty, almost like a sunset. This Independence Punch has the same cool effect. On the Big Bear's Wife blog, Angie tells you how this punch works and why the liquids stay separate. Super cool!
Not strictly patriotic, but really, how much red, white, and blue food can you eat? I found the recipe on the Disney Family Fun blog and it looks staggeringly easy. Now to unearth the cookie cutters....
I adore trifle. My Mom makes one with bananas and strawberries and pignoli cookies that makes me weak in the knees. The trifle pictured above is from the Skinnytaste blog and is therefore relatively low in calories. Visit the blog for a great tip on putting this trifle together in a snap!
Would you like to see some cooking/baking included on this blog, along with the usual artistic adventures? Let me know!
Thanks for stopping by!
