Im so excited! [And I just can't hide it!] Its the first day of red, white and blue week on the ole blog! Im going to be sharing some festive Fourth of July recipes this week. I love to cook, especially for holidays. Its so fun to make a big meal that you know family and friends will enjoy. It makes my heart grow ten sizes. Here is a sneak peek at the recipes for the week:
[Ps.. I quoted two different movies/tv shows just in the intro. Can you guess them?]
Fourth of July pancakes are also regular Bisquick pancakes that I dyed and used a cookie cutter on. But Fourth of July pancakes sound a whole lot fancier, don’t ya think? These bad boys were a lot of work though.
Ok, it really wasn’t that hard. I made one big batch of pancakes and then split them into three different containers. I dyed one red and one blue and left one plain.
I cooked them as I would a regular pancake [even though these ones are super special] and then used a cookie cutter to create the star shape. I thought it would be cute to put them on skewers with fruit between the pancakes. And it was! I added some fresh fruit between the pancakes to give it some extra color.
Add a dollop [or more] of homemade whipped cream and you have a great start to the Fourth of July! Because homemade whipped cream makes everything better. [Everything.]
Do you go all out for holidays? [Honestly, this is my first year trying fun new recipes like this. I think I like it.]
Oh and be sure to stop back by tomorrow for another easy red, white and blue recipe!
