Three Summery Treats

American Flag Fruit Pizza

shortbread is my kryptonite. I love it so very much. It's dangerous.
a classic shortbread recipe should be in every American chef's repertoire. It is simple, easy, and fantastically delicious. You can vary it in so many ways.

This year for the Fourth of July, I made this berry fruit pizza. I started with a classic shortbread crust. Once cooled, I added a mixture of berry cream cheese mixed with cool whip. After that first layer, you can add your berries in a fun design. I didn't have whipped cream on hand, but you can add that, too!

-cream cheese
-cool whip
-whupped cream (optional)
-cookie base (crust) - like this similar

BLT pasta salad

-any kind of pasta
-top with lettuce
-balsamic vinaigrette dressing 
(my absolute favorite salad dressing)

My third "treat" was this DE.LICIOUS. cole slaw made by a friend. You can see a picture on instagram, 

Low-calorie Cole Slaw

-plain fat-free yogurt
-apple cider vinegar
-red onion
-salt and pepper
-dill weed

I have to be honest... a friend made this for us. She brought over some BBQ with this delicious cole slaw. It is hands down the best cole slaw I have ever EATEN. It makes my mouth water just looking at that.

Me at the beginning of the Summer (after Conrad was born) :-O
