Red, White, and Blue Desserts for the 4th of July

All-Star Berry Tart
Cue the tunes. It’s time to gear up for celebrating America’s birthdaywith sparklers sparkling, fireworks thundering, and grills getting busy. The 4thof Julyhas always been a huge family holiday for me because summer is sometimes the only part of the year that our extended family has the flexibility to gettogether. I have so many rich memories of delicious food devoured outdoors, catch-up sessions with my family, andof course–the fireworks.

( function() {
var func = function() {
var iframe_form = document.getElementById('wpcom-iframe-form-c4bd1526d5ef7bf2bfd1e8a5a59e34cd-57718914423e4');
var iframe = document.getElementById('wpcom-iframe-c4bd1526d5ef7bf2bfd1e8a5a59e34cd-57718914423e4');
if ( iframe_form && iframe ) {
iframe.onload = function() {
iframe.contentWindow.postMessage( {
'msg_type': 'poll_size',
'frame_id': 'wpcom-iframe-c4bd1526d5ef7bf2bfd1e8a5a59e34cd-57718914423e4'
}, window.location.protocol + '//' );

// Autosize iframe
var funcSizeResponse = function( e ) {
var origin = document.createElement( 'a' );
origin.href = e.origin;

// Verify message origin
if ( '' !== )

// Verify message is in a format we expect
if ( 'object' !== typeof || undefined === ) return;

switch ( ) {
case 'poll_size:response':
var iframe = document.getElementById( );

if ( iframe && '' === iframe.width )
iframe.width = '100%';
if ( iframe && '' === iframe.height )
iframe.height = parseInt( );


if ( 'function' === typeof window.addEventListener ) {
window.addEventListener( 'message', funcSizeResponse, false );
} else if ( 'function' === typeof window.attachEvent ) {
window.attachEvent( 'onmessage', funcSizeResponse );
if (document.readyState === 'complete') { func.apply(); /* compat for infinite scroll */ }
else if ( document.addEventListener ) { document.addEventListener( 'DOMContentLoaded', func, false ); }
else if ( document.attachEvent ) { document.attachEvent( 'onreadystatechange', func ); }
} )();

Aside from the obvious awesomeness that comes with celebrating this massive summer birthday, what would the 4thof July be without some star-spangled red, white, and blue food to further the festivity" I know the tart pictured above is a looker, but I promise you don’t have to have any special ninja kitchen skills to master that and the other impressive recipes to follow. All you need is a little festive spirit and a plan. Channel y...
