In honor of our nation's birthday,  we are going to do something different and share some red, white, and blue dessert love. There should be no problem finding ‘Made in the USA' ingredients for these recipes.  Remember, read your labels and buy local when ever possible!   If there is something you can't find, let us know in the comments. And if you, like me, have waited until the last minute to figure out what you are going to bring to that 4th of July picnic, then this post is for you! Happy 236th Birthday USA!
