Remember this fun fruit salad idea from way back? Well I decided to use that idea for these 4th of July Fruit Salad Cones.

I love getting crafty with fruit for the 4th of July. This year, I had a ton of ideas, but not enough time. So if you are like me and need a fast and easy 4th of July dessert—this has you covered! 

Braised Beef Ragu

I’m still on my run of savory. And why shouldn’t I be? The reality is, yes, in between sweets, I actually eat food. But it’s not often I do meat for my savory, but today – we are going savory with some Braised Beef Ragu.

Summer Berry Trifles
