Welcome back to Recipe Wednesday; another avenue to promote your very best content, this time in the form of your most favorite recipes on your blog. Each Wednesday when you visit HLB you’ll find the theme for the newest recipe round up.
Some weeks our themes read like cookbook chapters, spotlight ingredients or flavors, or simply request the best recipe for a certain situation. Find an appropriate recipe from your blog archives to fit the theme and add to the link up. Or be inspired to create a new theme-friendly dish worth posting about before next Wednesday.
Each week we feature a handful of our favorite recipes from our HLB Members [learn how to become a Member here: HLB Membership How-To,] giving even more exposure to some of the best you’ve shared from your own kitchen. Let’s get to it, shall we?
Today we are looking for your favorite Red, White, and Blue recipes! Here are some of our favorites from around the HLB community to add to your summer menus:
Red, White, and Blue Fruit Cookie Pizza from Dash of Evans // ‘Looking for a simple Patriotic dessert? This Red,White, & Blue Fruit Cookie Pizza is perfect! Using packaged sugar cookie dough, whipped vanilla frosting and berries, this is SO yum! Shhh, no one has to know how easy it was.’

Red, White, and Blue Protein Pancakes from Ingredients of a Fit Chick // ‘This recipe is not only protein packed, but it is quick, easy and full of antioxidants from the fresh berries of the season!’
MURICA red, white, and blue layer cake from The REWM // ‘You could do this baking each layer from scratch but really…why bother? Boxed cake mix is the tits, and you’re going to want to save your energy for turning it blue.’
Red, White, and Blue Martini from Some Day I’ll Learn // ‘Go on and impress your friends with your red white and blue martini skills; the tip to use a stemmed cherry to layer the ingredients is genius!’
Red, White and Blue Salad from Eating Made Easy // ‘A simple, fresh, colorful way to celebrate Fourth of July – or any summer picnic or BBQ!’
Minted Blueberry Lemonade from Bean a Foodie // ‘I decided to cut down on the amount of sugar since I prefer a tart flavor to sweet and the blueberries I got were over the top sweet anyways. The mint, well, mint is the perfect summer herb. Why not add it in? Just makes everything that much more refreshing.’
Red, White, and Blue Salsa from Achieve with Athena // ‘The sweetness of the berries contrasted nicely with the tartness of the jicama and the cilantro flavor.’
Red, White, and Blue Kabobs and Red, White, and Blue Strawberries from Body Rebooted // Fun finger foods perfect for a BBQ and easy to make with the helping hands of the littles in your life.
No Fuss Yogurt Parfait from Sincerely Nourished // ‘This yogurt parfait has cacao nibs and coconut as the healthy fat component.’
Red, White, and Blue Pancakes from Foodie Loves Fitness // ‘I haven’t posted a pancake recipe in awhile, and trust me when I tell you that this one is deeeelicious. I’ve seen red, white & blue pancake commercials around for chain restaurants lately, and had the itch to come up with my own homemade version that’s gluten free, vegan, healthy and light.’
Navy Bean Cheesecake from Savory Spin // ‘A decadent and healthy, lactose free, protein packed “cheese”cake.’
Red, White, and Blue Trifle Cake from Just Me and My Running Shoes // We dig this simple, layered dessert that comes together quickly and sets in about 2 hours of chillin’ in the fridge time. Perfect for a BBQ or neighborhood potluck!
Red, White, and Blue Grilled Cheese from Ari’s Menu // ‘The brie cheese is so melty and dreamy, and then the goat cheese provides the perfect creaminess. Both of these cheeses pair perfectly with fruit, and the raspberry jam adds a bright sweetness the compliments the slightly tart bursting blueberries.’
Red, White, and Blue Trail Mix from Sinful Nutrition // ‘Red White & Blue Trail Mix Recipe — A festive and healthy snack idea for all of your Fourth of July celebrations!’
