Memorial Day Recipe Ideas

I can’t believe that Memorial Day is this Monday!

Teddy’s last day of school is next Thursday! Wow!

We are in full summer prep in this casa!

I was going through my head and thinking of things that I would like to make (and eat!) on Monday and really throughout the summer for that matter!

Here are a few of my favorite previous recipes that I have shared, that you just can’t skip out on making! They would be perfect additions to a Memorial Day BBQ or any summer BBQ/party!

You can sub any type of berry and they are just as delicious. The homemade whipped cream is so easy to make…you will never want to buy store-bought again.

They are lemon and gluten free! Need I say more?! These are my new favorite dessert for the summer!

This is another cocktail that is refreshing and delicious!

*I use half-pint sized jars for our cocktails and the shortcakes.
