around here...

saturday was the perfect summer afternoon when the sun beats down and swells the air with heat.  the perfect time for a late day picnic.

                                                                and the sunset was spectacular...
                        this was another great and easy dessert that also holds up well on picnics.
                                                              recipe via kiss my spatula


                      watermelon salad with feta, basil,  lemon and chopped chili lime cashews.
                                            this was super refreshing and really healthy.

    this simple appetizer is packed with flavor.  i was able to find some organic figs at whole foods.
    these are stuffed with blue cheese and then wrapped in prosciutto.  bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes

     i have tried lots of ice pops this summer and these strawberry cheesecake ice pops were delicious.
     this particular recipe calls for greek yogurt.  i would rather replace the yogurt with whipped cream
     i know, a far less healthy version but it's much richer and after all its summer. 

                               and yes, we all toast summer!!!  this is probably one of my favorite
                               photos so far this summer.  love them!!!


 hope you are enjoying yours.  

love sent, xo
