After Memorial Day weekend, we wait for the fourth of July. This year we are planning to visit Chicago for a potluck with my old friends whom we are meeting after long time, do all the rides available for the day with my little one, then watch fireworks. What are your plans for the July 4th? I hope you guys are having a great time with kids and summer holidays!

Last year I prepared a patriotic berry pie for the July 4th weekend which was appreciated by all my friends for the look and taste. If you have not checked the recipe yet please do so. It tastes amazing and when berries are in season make most use of it 🙂

If you are looking for simple and easy 15 minute dessert for the same day you can try the patriotic fruit and cream recipe.

Coming back to strawberry and blueberry panna cotta, if you are following my blog, you mare probably familiar with my love for fresh berries and how frequently I use them in my recipes. I was surprised to see that I have not posted this simple and easy Italian dessert that I prepare every year using fresh berries. Whenever I prepare panna cotta, it also reminds me of another french dessert called Blancmange. Generally, I prepare panna cotta with only 2 layers, that is with one fruit layer and one cream layer. This is the first time I am trying out 3 layers so that I can take it for potluck and also show my love for the county that has taught me so much.

It is always a very good idea to bring with you fancy desserts for holiday gatherings like the 4th of July, Christmas and Thanksgiving, isn’t it? It usually becomes the talk of the party, and you get to interact with lots of guests and make new connections.
