Happy 4th of July!

This is my favorite holiday – nothing to do but hang out with your friends, barbecue, and drink beer.

For an extra good time I suggest borrowing a really cute baby (this one is my godson) and giving him some holiday-themed maracas (and, of course, some aviators.) Good times will be had all around.

  1. Happy Fourth of July to you, too, and your fabulous family (love the baby pic). We’re babysitting our fabulous grandaughter this weekend, and our very close niece just had her first little girl 3 months ago. Big BBQ this afternoon with everyone!! which should be a blast.

    I’m bringing a red-white-and-blue bundt cake (“Bundt? What’s a bundt? This cake has a hole in it!”….my Big Fat Greek Wedding.)

    Red, White and Blue Bundt Cake
    1 box white cake mix
    1 small (3 3/4oz) instant vanilla pudding mix
    4 eggs
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    1 1/4 cups water
    1 pkg. white chocolate chips
    Red food coloring
    2 small (or 1 lg.) container fresh blueberries (will be divided into thirds)

    Mix dry ingrs.-cake mix & pudding mix- together in separate bowl. Mix all wet ingrs.-eggs, water & oil-in another larger bowl. Add dry ingrs. until well blended (whisk or electric mixer).

    Spray inside of bundt pan. Place a layer of 1/3rd of the rinsed and dry fresh blueberries in bottom of bundt pan. Layer 1/3 batter on top of blueberries. Sprinkle second 1/3rd blueberries on batter, then add another 1/3rd layer of batter. Sprinkle the last 1/3 layer of blueberries, then add the last of the batter on top.

    Bake in 350-degree oven for 55 mins. or until done (in my oven it usually takes more than 55 minutes).

    Let cake cool. For frosting, slowly melt white chocolate chips over low heat and add a little bit of milk, as needed, to increase smoothness. Add red food coloring to get a nice red or reddish color to the white chocolate. Use a spoon to drizzle all the chocolate over the cooled bundt cake (don’t try to “frost” the cake). Use all of the “frosting.”

    Serve and enjoy! Happy Fourth of July!
