5 Watermelon Recipes To Beat The Heat This Summer

Nothing says Summer like Independence Day...... and watermelon. I remember summers as a child when my grandfather would call our house and say he was about to cut open a watermelon from the garden. I would put on my shoes, or sometimes not, and sprint to his house...

Chicago ~ Day Two: The Hot Dog Chronicles

Yes, day two. That means I actually survived a second day. Barely. I am going to apologize in advance for this photo heavy post, but I promise that there will be a little bit of food porn if that makes it any better. Since we didn't really have any plans for Monday...

My First Adventure In The Windy City ~ Chicago Day One
