Festive for the Fourth!

In preparation for the Fourth of July, I grabbed my inner child and some nail polishes and got to work.

This seriously took me longer than it should have, but I am pleased with just how....defective..... it looks. Ha!

Fourth of July, here I am! I am ready for your plentiful BBQ, your booze and your yummy desserts.

And uh, celebrating my independence, of course. Duh.

I am debating on a couple recipes to try... I have a food day at work, a BBQ next weekend and probably something on the actual 4th itself with the in-laws.

Pinterest once again proved its worthiness when I stumbled across this brownie fruit pizza.

It's not totally 4th of July in its creation, but completely inspired. I think I will keep the banana on, just because I love banana, but it would totally work with just the combination of berries. I also was thinking of adding some kiwi, but maybe that's for another time.

I also will toot my own horn here, but last year I made these Red, White and Blue strawberries for my big family BBQ. They were a huge hit with every age group and took about 5 minutes to make.

 Please ignore this awful picture. Please. 

I also have been eyeballin' these pretties.

I would obviously need to buy a popsicle mold in order to emmulate the whimsy of these Firecracker Ice Pops, but I think it would be a great investment because my Pinterest food board is brimming with different homemade popsicles, and some even include booze. Heeeellllo, summer! 

But all this recipe entails is sugar, strawberries, blue berries and plain yogurt. Easy enough!

I'll letcha know what I come up with. ;) I love summer!
