Black Currant & Raspberry Sorbet

Leave it to Have a Yummy Day to leave my mouth watering and my jaw totally agape. Black currant and raspberries play nice in this scrumptious treat. Truth be told, I'd typically choose ice cream over sorbet. But when the results are this delicious looking, all bets are off. I'm on team sorbet all the way!

Inspired by our recent trip to Spain, I created this summery gazpacho.

10 Ways to Eat Watermelon

A few days ago, I headed out on my lunch break to pick up an iced coffee. Much to my dismay, it was absolutely freezing (and by freezing I mean so. not. summery).

Lucky, there are still a few summer weeks left , and I plan on taking advantage (starting with all of these watermelon recipes): PS - ...
