In my kitchen, we can't seem to get enough watermelon! Paired with blueberries, fresh strawberries, apples, grapes, and mango, the fruits of the season really dont need any further adornment. Photobucket
Unless you mix in a bit of honey, yogurt, and top with some delectable granola for a stunning brunch parfait!Photobucket
