Celebrate the Red, White and Blueberry with these patriotic recipes. You’ll find star-spangled treats, berrylicious desserts, healthy appetizers and cocktails too.
I’m having a hard time keeping track of days and weeks while sheltering at home, how about you? I had a startling realization this week that Monday is Memorial Day. While North Carolina is easing restrictions and we’re starting to venture out again (with our masks on), Memorial Day will be a different holiday this year as the unofficial start of summer without the normal beach trips or BBQs with friends and family.
One thing remains the same however; Memorial Day is still a holiday for remembering those made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives to protect our country and our freedoms.
