Patriotic Recipes for the 4th of July

If you're planning your menus for the 4th of July celebration, show your colors with this collection of Red, White and Blue Recipes.  Nothing says you care like a dessert that really fits the holiday theme, and you can't go wrong with a flag cake or cupcakes, colorful berry pies and tarts, parfaits, or frozen treats.  But if sweets are not your thing,  you might want to consider the Red, White and Blue Potato Salad featuring red and blue potatoes along with the regular white ones.

We're especially fond of this recipe for Celebration Cupcakes because it combines cupcakes with sprinkles and frosted sugar cookies.  Truly something for everyone!  That's what America is all about, right?  Happy 4th of July!
