I don't even have a vent in my kitchen, so the thought of baking on a scorching Summer day is completely out of the question. Thankfully, there are ways to skirt around the oven issue, like with this no-bake watermelon cake. The catch is, there is no cake! A miniwatermelon, whipped cream, slivered almonds, and berries are all you need to create this Pinterest-worthy dessert for 12.
Yummy and refreshing Watermelon Pineapple Mint Mojitos are the perfect summer cocktail made with watermelon and pineapple juice, simple syrup, white rum and mint leaves. This recipe is easy-to-make and can be made skinny my omitting the simple syrup! No high fructose syrup here. Just a great party cocktail recipe. Pin for later.
NEW BAKING TRICK: When you need softened butter - grate the butter while it is still hard, then mix with other ingredients as normal. It will soften quickly and perfectly and give an even dispersal of butter throughout the dough.
Fathers Day Gift. Another Pinterest inspiration! One of my kids gifts to Dad on Sunday. It says "Dad we love you because.... You are a cool dad who takes us to fun places! & You are my best sports buddy! & Happy Fathers Day 2011. I made the chalkboard out of a half round from the wood pile :)
