4th Of July Berry Ice Cubes and Water

4th of July Ice Cubes

This is a simple way to add to your 4th of July festivities. Kids can make this with the cooled water and it costs very little to make considering you will be likely buying berries anyway,  which are in season this time of year. As the ice melts the berries sink to the bottom of the jar or glass.

  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Water


  • Boil the water for the ice and let it cool.
  • Wash the berries and place 1-2 in each slot in the ice cube tray

If you do not have access to fresh berries, you can substitute frozen. 
To freeze clearer ice it is recommended to use double insulated trays with covers

Vegetable Rotini Salad
What makes this salad just not an ordinary pasta salad,  is that we added in not just fresh crunchy vegetables but also sweet and salty freshly roasted/grilled veggies too! The balance between both is what kicks up the flavor and makes you want to have a second helping. 
This summer salad is made with so many beautiful and chunky vegetables that the pasta almost takes a backseat. Colorful and bright tasting, you will want to serve this or take this to your next cookout, BBQ, pot luck or picnic.

If you can boil water, you can make potato salad. I was taught how to make the best potato salads by my stepmother. She had 8 kids and when she was invited to a BBQ or party with all her children, she knew she had to show up with a huge bowl of something and potatoes are inexpensive to purchase.  I have cut the amount for this salad in half, here’s what you need for ingredients.
