Watermelon Mint & Feta Salad

Watermelon, Mint & Feta Salad with Chicken, Bee Balm & a Honey Lime Margarita Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #refreshing #summer #salad #recipe

with Chicken, Bee Balm & a Honey Lime Margarita Vinaigrette I like to garden, but most of my property is forest, so there isn’t much light for gardening. I have a little pond on the edge of the forest with a waterfall. Years ago I planted a bee balm next to the pond. I heard […]

with goat cheese, toasted pecans and a Rosemary Thyme Sweet Hot Pepper Vinaigrette If a salad could be orgasmic, this would definitely be the one.

Cucumber Watermelon Feta Rubik's Cube Salad with Maple Ginger Champagne Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #watermelon #RubiksCube #puzzle #salad

Watermelon Rosewater Slushies

Watermelon Rosewater Slushies

There is something insanely romantic about roses. When my roses started blooming this year, don’t ask me why, but I desparately wanted to make some rosewater. I had no reason why I was doing it or what I was going to do with it, but I wanted to make it. So I did. The jar […]


Watermelon Basil Chia Smoothie

It’s time for the Crazy Cooking Challenge and this month we are all making smoothies. The assignment is to find another blogger’s smoothie recipe, make it, and blog about it. I chose this watermelon smoothie (slushie?) from the Full Belly Sisters because as some of you who follow me on facebook know, I recently bought a […]


Yellow Watermelon Kumquat Margaritas

Happy National Margarita Day! I went to my fridge to make a classic lime margarita and discovered I had NO limes, but still a few kumquats … hmm … kumquats are kinda like limes. They’re tart but also sweet … I bet they would be good in a margarita. And the watermelon? I know, it’s […]

Not My Grandmother’s Watermelon Pickles

Not my grandmother's gladiola either ...

I have very fond memories of my grandmother’s food and garden. As a child, it was always fun to go out to Gram’s  farm in the summer and wander in her huge garden. She had rows and rows of gladiolas and a variety of berries and vegetables. Her house was full of sunshine, quilts, afghans […]
