Red, White n Blue n Yellow n Purple

in baking, trader joe's

I hate packing. So yesterday, in the midst of pouring cleansers and shampoos into tiny little bottles, I decided to take a baking break.

Hey, you know what would be a good idea for 4th of July? Patriotic Cornbread! What could be more American?

It’ll be a cinch – I’ll just use Trader Joe’s mix…

This would actually be perfect for Easter, with all those little treasures…

Hey I didn`t remind that today was your Independence Day until I read your post. And I must say that this afternoon in the Obradoiro Square, in front of beautiful Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, there were a group of young people from USA singing the national anthem and now I know why. Fantastic patriotic cake.

Happy 4th of July! :))

Well, it may not necessarily look patriotic, but it sounds delicious! I’m so jealous of your creativity in the kitchen.
I hope you had a lovely 4th! <3

That looks incredibly easy and delicious, Lynn! What a great idea. I love cornbread and rarely make it-mostly because I will eat ALL OF IT! Happy 4th of July!

It’s the thought that counts! And the taste. And I’m SURE this tastes delicious.
