Fourth of July Desserts from Taste of Home

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

I love cookbooks. I don't always cook, but I love to flip through cookbooks and drool over all the fabulous meals I could make. Hmm... Maybe I actually only like the idea of cookbooks and all the possibilities. 

easy dessert ideas fourth july

Anyway, I recently subscribed to Taste of Home magazine. Some of their desserts for 4th of July look divine. We're going to visit my mom for the weekend and go to a party at a high school friends' house. It's potluck and I want to take my famous beans and a dessert (to go along with the red, white, and blue jello shots).

I thought I'd share some of the easy dessert recipes I found in case you need ideas for something to take to your party this weekend. I think I'm going with the pretzel rods and the shortcake squares. How about you? What are your plans? Are you making anything special?

*I got my subscription from She Speaks. Neither they or Taste of Home asked me to write about this. And I hate that I have to qualify that to appease the masses. Being helpful shouldn't require a disclaimer.


  1. I'm working 12 hours on the 4th and 5th so there's that.
    And don't you just love Taste of Home?

  2. Taste of Home is great for simple, sure to be tasty dishes.

  3. Man, I wanna see all of these on my table this 4th of July! ;-)


Thank you for visiting and letting me know your thoughts!
