Five on Friday: Cooking Up Red, White, and Blue

Happy Friday!  Who else is starting to celebrate the Fourth of July this weekend?  I saw the funniest meme about Independence Day falling on a Wednesday: how are we supposed to celebrate? That day? The weekend before? The weekend after? All month? All year? I agree.  I haven't decided what we will be bringing to a barbecue this weekend, but I can tell you that it will be red, white, and blue.  Here are five of our favorites for your own celebrations:

1. Strawberry Pretzel Salad: This is my mom's go-to summer recipe. With a pretzel crust and layers of whipped topping and berries, it's so refreshing and delicious!
2. M&M cookie bars: Using refrigerated dough, this recipe is so easy to make, and I love the festive M&Ms!
3. Watermelon pops: You can create this treat with any fruit of your choice and a star-shaped cookie cutter.
4. Fruit and granola kebobs: I made these for my participants at work one year when looking for a festive, healthy snack, and they were a hit; anything on a kebob skewer usually is!
5. Red, White, and Blue Berry Scones: I just shared this recipe earlier this week, but it definitely deserves to be in this list.  Scones might be my favorite pastry to make (here's a recipe for just strawberry and another for chocolate chip).

Great ideas for 4th of July treats! I was just trying to think of something fun I could make. The strawberry pretzel salad sounds delicious and like nothing else I've ever tried plus it's festive ;) Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis
