Here are 5 Wisconsin blueberry foods to enjoy in July or anytime!

Blueberry Cream Soda – If you love soda but are tired of the same old flavors at the gas station, try Blumer’s Blueberry Cream Soda. For an extra special summer treat, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a blueberry float!

July Fourth Desserts!

July fourth desserts!  – Nothing better to motivate kids to great behavior!

July fourth desserts got my kids to finish their hamburgers and corn-on-the-cob dinner. July fourth desserts got them to put down the party’s appetizer bowl of potato chips. July fourth desserts even got them to delay gratifying their sweet tooths earlier in the day. Yes, my children closed that cookie jar when I said if you eat sweets now you’ll miss out on dessert tonight.

July fourth desserts are a parents friend, – when used skillfully. And what parent of two has not achieved an ounce of skill? The trick to this successful, humane child manipulation is to alert the children early in the day to the wondrous desserts that will fill the table after dinner. It’s the old carrot-and-stick technique, but children never jump through hoops for carrots. With the right desserts however, parents are amazed at what good behavior they’ll get. So put away that stick, get baking or shopping, and make your children smile. Keep reading to see my July fourth desserts and get tips on turning devils into angels.
