The best summer salad ever! Watermelon and Heirloom Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Vinaigrette

Watermelon and Heirloom Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Dressing

There are three things that say summer to me:  watermelon, fresh ripe tomatoes and sweet corn. The recipe today has all three items…except the corn.  So, I guess technically, it only has two of the best summer ingredients. But, that’s okay because you are going to love it so much that you won’t even miss the corn.

Homemade Barbecue Sauce with grilled chicken

Barbecue!  That word conjures up summer and swimming and fresh fruit and veggies and meat cooking on the grill.

Cherry Clafouti…Gesundheit

Cherry Clafoutis

Cherry Clafoutis

Clafoutis definition:  Baked French dessert of fruit, traditionally black cherries, arranged in a buttered dish, and covered with a thick flan-like batter. The Clafoutis is dusted with powdered sugar, served warm and sometimes served with cream.

Gesundheit: used to wish good health, especially to one who has just sneezed.
