Frog Hollow Farms Peaches

Ohhhhh. Today's post is a woozy doozy. I'm giving away a box of sweet, succulent peaches to one of you! Well... I'm not actually giving them away -- Frog Hollow Farms is doing it, but I'm taking all the credit. Because I can. They don't get to look at this post first...

Charentais Melon

Charentais Melon

I know it says charentais melon up there at the top and that's true; but what is also true is that this is a canteloupe -- a real one. Not one of those impostor musk melons calling themselves canteloupes at the grocery store and farmer's markets. I talked about this...

Pineapple Dress

I'm not going to lie, it is completely possible that I have self-induced pineapple insanity. I bought a cute baby pineapple this week and instead of eating it right away, I left it on the counter. That would be fine, except when I walked in my house last night it...

Coconut + the best orange julius recipe!
