These 10 easy-to-make recipes will outshine even the most spectacular fireworks display. Ever heard of a fireworks show satisfying your sweet tooth? Didn’t think so.

1. Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Strawberries

We love this all-American dessert by blogger Spicy Southern Kitchen because it’s quick to make, on the healthier side and tastes like summer! The basic ingredients for red, white and blue cheesecake strawberries include fresh, ripe strawberries, cream cheese, sugar and blueberries. All you need to do is slice the strawberries in half and fill them with this simple cheesecake filling, which has a nice little boost of flavor thanks to the almond extract.
