About Me

Phoenix, Arizona, United States
The most important thing in my life is my family. I love my dear husband and 4 wonderful children (ages 11 through 18). I am a stay-at-home mom (my dream job!). Some of my favorite things to do include cooking (and eating!), photography, reading, piano, flute, watching my favorite TV shows, swimming, traveling, and most recently...using the rip stick with my kids. I would love to attend culinary school someday & fit my love of photography in with that somehow. My dream vacation is Italy - something I was recently blessed to experience! I'd love to return and see more of that beautiful and DELICIOUS country! My days are usually full of running kids to and from activities - scouts, sports, music and church. Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe, but I absolutely LOVE my crazy life and the people I am lucky enough to share it with!

Watermelon-Lemonade Coolers (from Southern Living's Secrets of the South's Best Barbecue)

This is a great recipe for using up the loads of watermelon I tend to have on hand all summer long!

Prep: 25 min., Cook: 10 min., Other: 8 hrs.

15 cups seeded and cubed watermelon
2 (12-oz.) cans frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed and undiluted
2 mint sprigs
Garnishes: watermelon wedges, fresh mint sprigs

Process watermelon, in batches, in a blender or foodprocessor until smooth.

Combine lemonade concentrate and 2 mint sprigs, and cook in a saucepan over medium-high heat 10
minutes. Stir together watermelon puree and lemonade mixture; cover and chill 8 hours. Remove and
discard mint. Stir and serve over ice. Garnish, if desired. Makes 14 cups.
