Three Ways to Eat Watermelon Rind

When most people eat a watermelon, they devour the red flesh inside and toss the rest of the watermelon in the trash (or, if you’re a gardener, the compost heap).

Take watermelon like this to your next gathering

Here’s the deal. If anyone ever asks you to bring watermelon to a picnic, barbeque, bar mitzvah or any other type of family gathering, don’t just bring a watermelon.


How do you store a watermelon carving

The 2016 Watermelon Carving Contest is in full swing (submit your carvings on the official contest page here), so I thought I’d take a look at this expert advice about how to store a watermelon carving.


I Want to Start Using More Watermelon in Recipes

KAREN G. ASKS: My family loves watermelon, and I’d like to start making more recipes using it. Do you have any tips on how to get started? First, congrats on making the leap from “wedges and cubes” to preparing more recipes with watermelon.


Recipe Watermelon Glazed Meatballs

This is the second year that we will be hosting Thanksgiving at our house, and my wife is excited to try incorporating watermelon into three different dishes, which I will be featuring here on the blog all month long!


How To Make Watermelon Jello Shots

Whether you’re six or 96, there’s only one food that is acceptable to play with: Jell-O! With a five-year-old daughter in the house, you can bet we go through a lot of the jiggly stuff, and I still find myself as amused with it as my daughter is.


New Years Resolution Making Watermelon Pizza

We’re halfway through the year (a little over halfway, I know), which means we’re halfway through my New Year’s resolution to prepare more meals using watermelon. So far, the experiment has been — according to my tastebuds, at least — a rousing success.


Featured Recipe Salmon Watermelon Sliders

Packed with omega-3 fats and lean proteins that support heart health, salmon is a versatile fish that can be used in a wide variety of dishes, from sweet to savory.


Recipe Watermelon Smores

What’s better than s’mores? How ‘bout s’mores made with watermelon? Yes, you read that correctly. S’mores…made with watermelon.


Recipe Watermelon Donuts

We won’t get into the whole “donut” vs. “doughnut” thing because I think you know which side of that debate I’m on. What we will discuss is how great donuts are. I mean, it’s essentially a piece of cake that you can eat for breakfast!


Recipe Watermelon Breakfast Lasagna

Like most of my favorite watermelon-related recipes, this one combines two things I love: watermelon and lasagna. It’s also related to one of my favorite meals – breakfast.


Recipe Watermelon Stacked Pancakes

I’m not sure why I’ve never made it. It’s not like I haven’t had the opportunity or the ingredients. I make pancakes two or three times a month (almost always on a Saturday morning) and I have watermelon in my fridge pretty much all the time.


Recipe Watermelon Milkshake

On any given day, the ranking of my number one favorite food can vary between bacon, ice cream and watermelon. They’re all amazing, and if I could find a way to combine all three, I would.


Recipe Whod Like Some Watermelon Salsa

I usually enjoy it the simplest way I know how – straight from a jar – but I’ll be the first to admit that nothing is better than fresh, homemade salsa. And I can also say with certainty that there’s no better salsa than watermelon salsa.


Recipe Watermelon Margaritas

This recipe is great whether you’re looking for something to share with friends at a summer barbeque or you’re just relaxing on your porch with a good book. Maybe also while lying on an inflatable raft in a pool.


Recipe Watermelon Rind Relish

I’ve posted recipes in the past for watermelon rind pickles, but today’s how-to is for watermelon rind relish.


Super Sunday Recipe Deep Fried Watermelon

Our first Super Sunday watermelon recipe is one we’ve posted in the past, but it’s deep fried, and that’s always a good thing on game day, which is why we’re posting it again.


Recipe Watermelon Wine Spritzers

I should point out that I’m more of a beer guy than a wine guy (and no, I still haven’t tracked down that watermelon beer), but every now and then I do enjoy a glass of Merlot or, in the case of this recipe, chardonnay.


Recipe Sweet Watermelon Ice

Looking for the perfect way to cool down this summer? Of course you are. So am I. Which is what led me to this cool recipe (as if watermelon wasn’t cool enough).


Recipe Watermelon Feta Salad

Everyone I talk to says watermelon and feta cheese are two foods destined to go together. Sort of like peanut butter and jelly or coffee and doughnuts.


Recipe Watermelon Cheddar Burger

The only way the name of this recipe could get any better was if they inserted “chocolate” or “ice cream” or “bacon” in there somewhere. Actually, you could easily put bacon on this burger. Someone pinch me.
