The 4th of July weekend is upon us, so I thought I would post some of my favorite dessert recipes that have a red, white or blue component.  Since most of us from the U.S. have  a long weekend ahead of us, I am guessing the majority of you are either having a party or attending one to celebrate Independence Day. So, if you’re looking for something aside from the typical flag cake, I have just the perfect recipes for you.

At the last minute, I decided that  I would also throw some appetizer and pot-luck type dishes into the mix to help you with your last minute party planning. All of these recipes are easy to prepare and are sure to please a crowd.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of family, friends, fireworks and food. Be safe and be sure to check out MBA late in the weekend for a fantastically awesome giveaway. If I’ve piqued your interest, you can find a hint on my Facebook wall.
