Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!

We hope everyone has a fantastic time celebrating this 4th of July!  We love to picnic with friends and family and enjoy scrumptious treats.  It's definitely a cheat day!  My grandmother always kept a pound cake on her kitchen counter in a pretty glass cake dome, so my love of pound cake runs deep.  I came across this recipe recently that incorporates strawberries and cream cheese - two of my favorites!  Give it a try.  I don't think you'll be disappointed.  Happy 4th!
