A Full Day of Red, White and Blue Recipes

Hello lovely readers, and happy first day of July! It’s officially been summer for a little while now, but for me the most summery day of the year is Fourth of July here in the United States. As a first post for my July mini blogging challenge, I knew I wanted to do something super summery, and what better thing than red, white and blue Fourth of July recipes?

It’s really easy to just add red or blue food-dye to everything and call it “red white and blue” but I really wanted to share recipes that push the boundaries of using foods to create colors. Which of course results in about 2/3 of these recipes featuring strawberries and blueberries, but hey, at least it’s healthier. But in all honesty, I did try to branch out and find some new recipes that called for some different red and blue ingredients.

I have complied two different options for every meal in the day, so you can go all out crazy on the Fourth if you’d like to! I hope you enjoy these red, white and blue recipes, and please do let me know if you decide to make any of them!
