Pink Saturday: Watermelon Tip

Have you ever bought a watermelon got home, cut it up and it lacks a bit in flavor?  I have the perfect solution.  This is a great tip I received from my good friend over at Tightwad Mom's Frugal  Forum  years ago.

 It is brilliant!! Mix it with non-calorie drink mix, the powder kind.  We love Raspberry Ice flavor.  YUM!!
It add just a touch of flavor and makes it so delicious.   My kids ask for it no matter what the watermelon tastes like.
Happy Pink Saturday!
Not quite pink but I figured you probably wouldn't want to see my pink back. Which after a week is finally pink not bright red! Lesson learned:
DO NOT LET YOUR SIX YEAR OLD APPLY SUNSCREEN TO YOUR BACK!! I planned on applying more but we got in a hurry and I forgot. Atleast everyone else got lathered.
Now go check out all the pink over at Pink Saturday!!
Also check out my Friend Frenchy over at Le Chateau des fleurs by Frenchy.  She has an incredible eye for decorating. (I really need her to help me out!!) It is an amazing blog with great ideas and incredible pictures.
Happy PINKS!!!


  1. Wow... very interesting.. we might have to try this. I've had that happen to me quite a few times. My husband is Russian and he said they are watermelon two ways there.. one, infused with vodka! and two, with feta cheese and pita bread. Not too sure about that one. He keeps saying he's going to make it for us. I'm not in any hurry! He can take his time! HA!!
    I love Frenchy as well. She is just fabulous! I neardly died when I saw her last bathroom posting!! Unbelievable!!
    Happy Pink Saturday!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
