    Hi Mary-I’ve been perusing your various yummy recipes this morning. So far, I’ve only had breakfast & a fresh fruit snack but after reading so many of the recipes I’m ready for lunch & it’s not 10:30 yet! LOL I think I shall try the layered berry cake, watermelon lemonade, & with the heat, the frozen pup treats will be for people too. I’m going to look for some little buckets today to put freedom fries in as you pictured. They are so cute! Thank you for all the tasty recipes & clever serving ideas! Wishing you a safe, happy 4th! Clara 🇺🇸 🍉 ☺️ ❤️

    Mary thanks again for all the wonderful patriotic recipes. Last year I prepared the red, white and blue trifle for our neighbor picnic, with your easy lemon curd, it was the hit of the party. Thank you for always making me look good. I am constantly giving you credit for my successes
