What you can pick up and make quick for supper tonight? 

Roast the mushrooms and toss with basil pesto.
Somebody made Tomato Pie this weekend... (see our Facebook page)

RECIPE

Our Blueberry Mint Angel Food Yum
 looks something like this... 

I made a really yummy dessert for a friend's family reunion this weekend.

My fruit salad plan was thwarted by procrastination and a watermelon filled with seeds, so I stormed my own brain to come up with this idea based on ingredients available at farmers markets, RIPE and DELICIOUS right now, no cooking necessary! Several tortured seconds later, I "eureka'd!" Click here that I may give you the first dessert I ever made in a parking lot.
