Fruit salad

Summertime calls for Watermelon Salad

I have several versions of this salad but here’s the most basic one.  This is the salad that keeps me awake at night.  I’ve literally gotten out of bed at 3 a.m. for a mad dash to the fridge just to scoop up a spoonful to sustain me until morning.  It’s that good to me.  That sweet, salty, herby, cheesy combo gets me every time.



A Few Easter Recipes.. Chocolate Nests, Bunny’s Favorite Dip, and Citrus Fruit Dip

It’s starting to feel like spring!  Yay!!!  Finally!!  The sunshine and warm temperatures put me in the mood to do some Easter recipes.  First of all let’s talk about the kids. Whether you’re hosting an Easter party or taking some snacks to school, these cute and easy Easter nests are terrific!  My biggest issue with most Easter-themed recipes is that they often taste like sticky, sweet, marshmallowy goo.  Yep, you guessed. I do not like Peeps! These chocolate nests are actually tasty AND cute. Try!

Next, wouldn’t it be nice to have something a little bit healthy for that kids’ Easter party?  I created Bunny’s Favorite Dip for something fun and healthy.

Lastly, I’ll bet many of you plan to serve some kind of fresh fruit at your Easter gathering.  I can’t think of a better accompaniment than this Citrus Fruit Dip.  It’s just plain luscious.  I served it at a brunch recently and after my girlfriends and I had eaten all the fruit, we still had some dip left.  We discovered that it was delicious smeared on pancakes.  You’ll love it!
