two yummy recipes + a happy little planter/tub

With 4th of July weekend right around the corner, I'm thinking of all the fun stuff I want to make. I love holidays! I made {this} yummy no-egg chocolate chip cookie bar recipe twice in one week! Once for Pop's birthday and then to share with a sweet friend. It's soooo good and super easy too! 

Kimberlee has some really yummy recipes archived on her {blog}. Be sure to check them out.  And while you're at it, why not bake a batch of these and surprise a friend with them. Spreading joy is what it's all about!
I also plan to make my favorite trifle and add some of the blueberries {we just picked} along with strawberries. It's so super easy and so yummy! Here's {my recipe}.
Look what I recently found at a local antiques store!!  I'm so super excited about my new planter that moonlights as a beverage tub for parties.  It was already painted the perfect color and I love how it coordinates with the fun wreath I made at {Craft Weekend}!  I love a good find!!
So back to recipes...what are your favorite 4th of July recipes? I'm always up for trying new ones!
