I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Refreshing Cucumber and Watermelon Salad

When you can't decide if you want a fruit or veggie salad, this is the one for you.  


2 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
1 English cucumber, cubed
a couple of handfuls of iceberg lettuce
1 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped

Whisk together:

the juice (approx 2 tbsps) and zest of 1 lemon
2 tbsps olive oil
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp honey
salt and pepper to taste

Toss all together and serve immediately.  If you want to make it ahead of time, set aside the lettuce and dressing until ready to serve.
