Celebrate with Stars and Stripes

Whether you’re hosting a Memorial Day cookout, an all-out Fourth of July bash or an end-of-summer get-together for Labor Day, a patriotic bite is always a welcome addition to the menu. With these recipes you can choose from savory options like deviled eggs and caprese salad — or sweet treats like berry-topped flag cakes. Either way, you’re guaranteed lots of red, white and blue for your celebration. One of our favorite recipes? This ice cream cake. It's easier than it looks, thanks to a press-in-the-pan crust made from shortbread cookie crumbs. Then it's just a matter of layering on jam and a no-churn homemade ice cream. Parchment paper templates make fast work of creating the stripes.
