How Do I Pick A Watermelon?

Pick it up: Big or small, the watermelon should feel heavy for its size. Look for the yellow spot: Watermelons develop a splotch where they rest on the ground. When this splotch is creamy yellow, it’s ripe. Give it a thump: Tap the underbelly of the watermelon

So You Have A Blender Recommendation?

We are die hard Blendtec fans around here.  I’ve been using the brand for years and years and I’ll never own another blender.  Many years ago my husband offered to buy me a designer bag for my birthday, or a Blendtec.  I chose the Blendtec blender and I’ve never looked back.  It is truly something in my kitchen that I used every day.  A high powered blender is unmatched to other blenders.  You can blend and emulsify like a pro.
