Red, White and Blue Cake

Happy Fourth of July!

You can find this lovely cake recipe here. This cake was super easy. Anyone can do it. Do not be intimidated like I was. Piping bags scare me. They give me nightmares.

Here is a fantastically refreshing cherry tomato and green bean salad that I adapted from another great food blog, Smitten Kitchen. Her pictures are so great, they make me cry. The only change I made to her recipe is I used balsamic vinegar instead of red wine vinegar. I also add crumbled garlic and herb feta cheese which is not pictured because I didn't add it until the last minute and then I forgot to take a picture. That is so ME.

And here's some fresh watermelon. No recipe required! I love things like that.

And of course, it wouldn't be Fourth of July without a caprese salad which is basically a fancy way of saying mozzarella, tomato and basil drizzled with some olive olive. American flags optional. I think every Italian grandmother is probably rolling over in their respective graves right about now.
