These watermelon sodas are so refreshing, so natural, and such a beautiful color! Made from just a basic combination of pureed and strained watermelon, homemade simple syrup, and club soda, these drinks have some sweetness and sparkle of a soda, with the natural benefits of fresh watermelon. They taste like a glass of summer sunshine, and they are fun to make!
These delicious baked beans will be a hit at any barbecue or picnic! Full of the sweet, smoky, and a little bit spicy flavor of good barbecue sauce, along with sautéed bacon and onions, these festive baked beans are a great mixture of comfort food and party food. And though it is summer, which means picnics and potlucks, I can imagine these barbecue baked beans would be comforting and cozy in the winter months as well. Either way, this dish is truly an easy crowd-pleaser that tastes like it was harder to make than it actually was!
