Patriotic Pound Cake

I love Memorial Day. It’s so meaningful to me. My grandpa served in the US Army and that’s how he met my grandma. If not for his time in the service, I wouldn’t be here.

But I am very lucky that Memorial Day isn’t for him. My grandpa made it out alive. I celebrate my grandpa on Veteran’s Day and I remember those soldiers and servicemen and women who were lost in battle.

For so many people, though, Memorial Day is a three-day weekend filled with BBQ’s and patriotic treats. And that’s fine too. You do you. If you’re looking for a patriotic treat, check out our Patriotic Pound Cake.
