I’ve always been patriotic and thankful for all the blessings we have as Americans. Now, that I am a Sailor in the United States Navy, the feeling has transformed into a stronger bond with a country that I’m really proud to be a part of. Of course, it is not perfect – but nothing ever is. The point is that there is so much opportunity to make a difference because you have the freedom to do it.
*End of Patriotic rant*
For the holiday I baked a bizcocho from scratch – Puerto Rican style and it came out sooo good. I can’t wait to make a cake like this again. The link to the recipe is at the end of this post.
My daughter, Jazlynn, and I also made and decorated cupcakes last night. We had so much fun 🙂
We mixed in food coloring to regular frosting for the red and blue. I made most of the flags and Jazlynn helped make the “firework” designs.
We then took a walk and gave away cupcakes to our neighbors. Using food is always a good way to meet new people – everyone eats!

God bless America!
