Declare your independence from the oven with these red, white, and blue No-Bake Berry Cheesecakes that are perfect for the 4th of July!
So…in my last post, I mentioned I had some fun new partnerships to share. Well, this is the first one! I just recently signed on to be a contributor with Delish.com! Delish is an awesome site for everything food, and twice a month, I’ll be developing and sharing recipes over on their site. My first post is creamy, sweet, and absolutely perfect for the Fourth of July! Here’s a little post preview…click over for the whole thing, including the recipe!
Growing up, the 4th of July always felt like the middle of my summer. I remember in elementary school when the holiday came, I would start to feel like the countdown back to school would begin. In reality, the 4th of July is the pinnacle of summer, and it was just my younger self feeling the need to appreciate my limited days of summer vacation, with long days at the pool and weeks spent at cooking camp. I just graduated from college last month, so this is my first 4th of July without another school ahead of me, but I still feel the need to appreciate each summer day.
Instead, now I’ll be cherishing each of the coming long, hot Seattle days, getting to do what I love. This 4th of July will be a celebration of both our country’s freedom, and mine!
Of course, doing what I love entails always dreaming up a new red, white, and blue dessert for each Independence Day. This year, Seattle has been unusually hot, and in my small apartment without air conditioning, the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven!
Thankfully, a lack of oven heat does not mean a lack of delicious desserts. One of the best no-bake desserts up my sleeve is no-bake cheesecake. It comes together so quickly and easily, and the result tastes super impressive.
