Follow Friday, 4th of July edition

29 Jun

In the spirit of my favorite and upcoming holiday, I present to you some fabulous Independence Day-themed recipes, as well as some places to check out fireworks if you’re in the Twin Cities metropolitan area for the holiday.

Red, White & Blue cake from Baked Bree

Variety of fun food for the Fourth, from Home Goods (check out the Flag fruit kabobs)

Strawberries and Stripes, from the Sister’s Cafe

Firecracker Cookies, from Cookin’ Cowgirl

Red, White & Blue Bunt cake, from Betty Crocker

Red, White & Boom – fireworks along the Mississippi River in Minneapolis

Fireworks Spectacular at Canterbury Park

4th of July Cake Pops, from My Juice Cup (inspired by Bakearella)

I’ve always struggled to capture fireworks on film – whether its shaking from excitement or not knowing the proper shutter speed to use, I’m bound and determined to figure it out this Fourth of July! Thanks to a fellow blogger, I’m taking their advice for 5 tips on taking pictures of fireworks.

Happy Fourth of July from my family to you and yours!
