Watermelon Corn Salsa

I can remember when my brothers and I were younger and lived with our mom in Ocala, Florida.  We used to ride the school bus home down this sand road as we lived on the outskirts of the city.  The bus would drop us off at the corner stop which was still a good 20 minute walk to get home.  In the hot Ocala summer heat 20 minutes was pretty intense and you needed something to cool you off.  There was a watermelon patch we discovered on our way home one day. I remember we would jump the fence and...

A Cool Summer Treat

Here's a cool, satisfying, and low fat snack perfect for summer. With it being so hot outside this is the ultimate soup that'll cool you off. Traditionally Gazpacho is a chilled soup originating from Andalusia. The soup was made by crushing vegetables, garlic, tomatoes, and a handful of weeks old bread in a mortar along with olive oil and vinegar. Imagine yourself getting ready to throw a dinner party and you had to make a big batch of gazpacho in a mortar. You would have gazpacho everywhere except for in the mortar. For this recipe I've simplified the prep work...

I know I know. We were teenagers and apparently that's what all the cool kids were doing. Back to Summer. These were the days that seem to...
