I seem to make big life changes on the 4th of July. I moved the Minnesota 19 years ago on this holiday, and this year I am moving again. Luckily it is just down the street, but it might as well be across the world with all the work involved. We’ve been packing for weeks and today I start to dismantle my kitchen. This is exciting and stressful in equal measures. I am happy to be moving to our new home, but there are so many memories in this old house. Not to mention throwing the contents of my kitchen into boxes is going to test the strength of my character. Wish me luck. Think of me as you are grilling and picnicking.
Here are some 4th of July desserts I recently created for the Cooking Channel.
Red, White and Blue Velvet Cake  with stars and stripes.
Enjoy! I will start blogging from the new house in a couple of weeks.
