15 Naturally Red, White and Blue Recipes!

Happy almost-July, everyone! Hayley here, today, with your Sunday recipe round-up.
My husband was born on the 4th of July. I love that when he was little, he thought all of the excitement and fireworks were exclusively for him, that the whole country was celebrating his birthday. He recalls having fireworks and slip’n’slides every year, but he also fondly remembers a fluffy, pink strawberry birthday cake that his mom would make. Not exactly patriotic (albeit, delicious). But these days, his usual birthday cake request is a tres leches cake I make, with with fresh berries on top. In the past, I usually do blackberries, or raspberries, and both look pretty sitting on a cloud of whipped cream. But this year I might have to sneak some blueberries in for the blackberries, or at the very least, make another festive 4th of July dish. Because with our nation’s birthday just around the corner, it’s hard to resist the urge to make something a little patriotic.
Nothing says “Happy Birthday, America,” quite like the trio of red, white and blue, especially when there’s no food coloring involved. So we’re going au naturale for this roundup! No artificial colors, only beautiful berries.
So we hope you enjoy these 15 star-spangled recipes that are guaranteed to give America the proper birthday she deserves!

I always check your site for a recipe before any other! I absolutely love your recipes and I probably make something from your site at least twice a week. I was hoping to find a tres leches cake recipe but I am not seeing one posted. I would love love love if you might be willing to share the one you bake for your husband! : )
Thanks for your sweet words, Ryan — we’re so happy you enjoy the blog! Here’s the tres leches cake recipe I love! :)
Looking so beautiful and yummy and patriotic. Will match my red white and blue tablecloth, other stuff from WILTON and my FIESTA red white and blue collection. Thank you for all of these. I have yet to try at least four of the recipes in time for JULY 4th.
