We are grateful for Food, Friends and Fireworks… Come Fourth!
For our gathering, I decided to keep it easy with a festive fresh blueberry and raspberry cheesecake bars based on a recipe from food network by Tyler Florence.
For festive Made in square pans and cut into bar size pieces, I doubled the recipe and have 36 bars. I smeared one with the oven mitt, so we sampled last night – festive and delicious with a nice lemon note.
On to Dark Chocolate Pretzel sparklers – from Martha Stewart. Easy peasy! Did not chop the chocolate chips and it melted just fine. Next time I would plan earlier so that I could source more of the round sprinkles as the sugars sprinkles tended to melt and not as festive impact – I’m sure no one but me will mind!
Back out to the garden to gather flowers for my traditional Red, White & Blue Arrangement:
Now off to visit friends at their lake house for sharing food and fireworks!
Have a lot to be thankful for!
Enjoy – living the EntwinedLife
Jayme, nice to catch your posts again. This is the first year the two hydrangeas you gave me have been laden with flowers. Pink from my soil, but I plan to work them back toward blue. I appreciate them so much and thank you for sharing. Happy Fourth!
Do happy to hear!!!!
From now on they should be abundant bloomers! All the best! Jayme
