Red, White and Blue Trifle
I love cooking with the seasons and right now we are in the midst of fresh fruit season. Everything is so ripe and so delicious. Josh and I originally made this recipe a few months ago for dessert at home, and then decided it was the perfect 4th of July dessert. We’ll very likely be making it a few more times before the summer is over.
All the ingredients were bought fresh at Family Fare. They have some incredible deals on produce right now. We bought all these goodies during a buy two, get three free deal. You can’t beat it!
