Fourth of July Recipe Link Up - The Results

One of my favorite ways to spend Owen's nap time is browsing around for new recipes on Pinterest, and every once in a while I spend some time rehashing some of the recipes I've pinned, but haven't tried yet. Over the last week or more I've been busy pinning recipes from our Fourth of July Recipe Link Up to my 4th of July board so I can make sure to use a few of them next year. There are so many great ideas that were shared during the link up!

I was so lucky to be matched up with Leah and her Patriotic Parfait recipe! I love that it's pretty, healthy, super simple and fresh! I also love that it's totally customizable -- you can swap out what's included and add you family's favorite in. I kept mine pretty close to what Leah showed in her's, only I used vanilla pudding instead of Cool Whip, but I totally forgot to use pretty sprinkles :(

Here's how it turned out!

raspberries, fresh & washed
blueberries, fresh & washed
strawberry, for garnish (optional)
vanilla pudding
graham crackers, crushed

1. Layer ingredients how ever you like! Mine went: pudding, graham cracker crumbs, berries. Keep repeating the layers, alternating red and blue berries, until your jar is full!

2. Enjoy!

Don't forget to stop by the other hostess' and participants blogs to see all of the other great recipes! I believe Christina from This Woman Cooks was matched with my rocket pops and I can't wait to hear how they likes them and /or changed them to their liking!

Natalie from Nat Your Average Girl
Sara from Running From The Law
Natasha from Hello Happiness
Christina from This Woman Cooks
Leah from Everyday Love
and Ashley from Words About Waverly

Thanks so much to everyone who participated! I can't wait to see how everyone adapted the recipes the were matched with.
