Hi there friends! It’s me, Julie from redheadcandecorate.com. It is such a magnificent, warm sunny day here in Southeast Michigan (finally)! The birds are singing, my hostas are in full bloom, and I have a very pregnant robin living in my fern on our front porch. All of these are sure signs that it is indeed late Spring, so that means it’s time for us to think about celebrating our veterans on Memorial Day & of course the Fourth of July isn’t far behind. So, with all of that being said, this month I decided to ask my friends in blog land if I could feature some of their “Patriotic Desserts”. Wow, did they come through for us. I decided to throw in a a couple of mine as well. I hope you enjoy these sweet red, white, and blue desserts as much as I did writing about them.
Oh, but before we get to the recipes, I would like to extend an invitation to you to subscribe to our free weekly newsletter because our DIY Laundry Room reveal is coming up this week! I’m working on the light fixture tonight, and the new rug is in 😀
Patriotic Dessert Recipes
When I was a little girl visiting my best friend’s house, I remember her kind grandpa talking me into trying this easy strawberry dessert made with sour cream and brown sugar. I couldn’t believe how yummy it was. This is a must try.

Next up, is actually another “gramps” recipe, however this black berry pie recipe comes from my husband’s grandfather, Howie. Ohh, Howie was one of the sweetest men I have ever known and he really could bake up a storm. I never had his pie, but I’ve heard the story from my husband how Howie and Millie would make this black berry pie while they were camping. My husband claims it was the best pie he ever had. I hope you give it try…
