Squee! Memorial Day is this weekend and I always look forward to the unofficial kick-off to summer! My hubby and I were married on Memorial Day weekend, so along with a great big family picnic, we also have an anniversary party! We will have been married 29 years this coming weekend, and I honestly don't know where the time went! It doesn't feel like we've been married close to 30 years! Scary, right?! (hee-hee)
Before we dive into the tasty recipes contributed by my bloggy friends, I don't want to forget to stop and honor the men and women who gave their lives for our amazing country. My parents and grandparents emigrated to America in the 1950's, so while I haven't personally lost family members who served in the United States, I will NEVER forget my grandfather telling me about the day the Americans liberated the concentration camp where he had been a prisoner for four years during WWII. My grandfather LOVED America and was very proud of his American citizenship.
O'kay! It's time to sweeten your Memorial Day (or 4th of July) with these colorful and patriotic desserts! There are 15 tasty treats to try! Enjoy!
