Watermelon Salad with a Balsamic Reduction | Kita Roberts PassTheSushi.com
I feel like I haven't been cooking as much this summer, when I think the truth is, I just have gotten way to used to cooking as much as I do and it doesn't feel like as much. The other day I knocked out three different cupcakes and icing and realized it didn't take all day and wasn't that big a deal. I remember when piping icing used to be huge ordeal. I need a new hobby.

Speaking of hobbies, I really want washi tape. Not sure why. But it seems all cute and crafty. Which I am neither.

Here's my 'I haven't been cooking' summer round up photo...

And a killer recipe for summertime barbecue side dish!
