This was not originally going to be posted but I thought it is such a fun idea to make for a red, white and blue party!
We picked up lots of fresh seasonal blueberries, strawberries and cherries at the market so I decided to get patriotic with it. Pair it up with your favorite cheeses, and create a beautiful American Flag! I used goat cheese as the base and Provolone cheese for the star cutouts. It would also be fun to add marcona almonds in place of the white strips on top of the goat cheese for a wine party!
Happy almost Fourth of July! And come back tomorrow for a Watermelon Coconut Ice Cream Popsicle recipe plus FREE GIVEAWAY!

It is time to fire-up that grill to memorialize Summer Solstice and enjoy these long summer nights! The summer solstice has actually been commemorated for centuries, generally on the 21st of June in the north hemisphere. This marks the longest day of the year when we enjoy spending more time outside with picnics and luscious grilled food. Grilling is not just a cooking method, it is an event to be shared and relish the incomparable smokey flavors of a backyard barbeque.
In California, a lot of the older homes do not have air condition so I find we grill almost every night during the summer since it is way too hot to use the oven.
