Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Cantaloupe Basil Lemon Soup

Fruit soups are a great summer treat as well as a refreshing way to enjoy all the basil and mint that is in abundance this time of year….so easy too.  Peel and seed a cantaloupe and combine in a blender or Cuisinart with the juice of half a lemon, a cup of basil, and half a teaspoon of sugar or honey.  Chill for at least an hour or even better, overnight.  You could also try spicing it up with a couple drops of Sriracha hot sauce, some fresh ginger, or a prosciutto garnish.  If you only have honeydew prepare the same way with some fresh lime juice and mint.  It’s hard to go wrong…get chillin’!
