Quick and Easy 4th of July Cookie Pizza

We’ve been making cookie pizza for years. I remember making one to share with my classmates back in college and it was a huge hit! And while there are tons of different recipes for cookie pizza on Pinterest, my quick and easy 4th of July cookie pizza is great because it starts with a pouch of store-bought sugar cookie mix. It’s also a super versatile recipe – you can customize it for any holiday. A heart pizza for Valentine’s Day, a Christmas tree for Christmas, a margarita shaped pizza for World Margarita Day. Ha! (It’s in February FYI.) The possibilities are endless!

My kids absolutely love making fruit pizza. They like spreading the frosting, placing the fruit, and drizzling the topping. And the fruit totally makes this a healthy recipe, right?

My quick and easy 4th of July cookie pizza is a perfect dessert to take to a 4th of July potluck or barbecue. Just wait and arrange the fruit and drizzle the marmalade at the last minute. It doesn’t keep well (it starts to get mushy) so make sure you eat all of it in one sitting. Which isn’t hard for my family to do!

Orecchiette with Peas, Pancetta, and Parmesan

I know, I know – there are probably a million recipes on Pinterest for orecchiette with peas, pancetta, and parmesan. But my recipe is made with all pantry and freezer ingredients, so it’s a super easy meal to throw together on nights when you just don’t want to adult anymore. Or those days when you don’t feel like taking two kids to the grocery store.

It’s a #lazymomapproved recipe!

Tonight, we’re having PJ Family Movie Night at home and watching the original animated Beauty and the Beast. It’s a classic!

We’re all pretty beat – we spent the morning at Washington Farms picking strawberries, playing, eating ice cream, and getting a tiny bit sunburned. So it’s the perfect night for a movie – we can relax and put our feet up!

To go with our movie, we made a quick themed snack. I saw these adorable Puff Pastry Apple Roses on Facebook a few days ago and they looked so cute and easy – I knew I wanted to try making them!

Not My Mother-In-Law’s Coconut Cake

My mother-in-law makes the BEST coconut cake, hands down.

Every year I request this cake for my birthday and it’s amazing. Light and fluffy, but also creamy and coco-nutty. Perfectly sweet, but not too sweet. And the frosting is dreamy. It’s the BEST!

Want her recipe? Too bad! She’s taking it to her grave. I’m serious! She won’t share it! Maybe if you call her and offer her money, she might reveal her secrets. But good luck. I gave her two perfect grandchildren and she won’t share it with me. So until that recipe is set free, this one will have to do.
