The Fourth of July is going to be big in our house this year. We’ve got a full weekend full of patriotic and, yes, slightly nerdy, plans that will roll us right into our first Washington, DC 4th of July. I can’t wait!
My wanna-be-chef, Claire, is hoping we can squeeze in some time to make a few fun patriotic themed desserts as well. I asked some of my fellow bloggers for their easy Fouth of July Recipes and boy did they come through for me!
I’m sure you’ll agree: these are perfect for your celebrations next month too.

Megan created a fun treat that I think we can even take with us on the go!
White chocolate? Good.
Check Mix? Good.
I don’t see how we can go wrong here!

Protein Packed Mini Cheesecakes from Play. Party. Plan.
If you aren’t reading Britni’s blog regularly, you should probably start. She’s so clever with her party plans and recipes.
I wish I lived closer so I could attend a few of her shindigs- why, yes, I did just invite myself over!
Check these out: I gotta say that I love the protein factor in here. Makes me feel a little more Atkins-y while I’m enjoying dessert.
