If you’re a fan of cornbread or savory, cheesy breads, I think you will love this recipe! My friend Ann gave it to me last fall, after I had made some Cheddar and Green Onion Cornbread. I finally got around to making this, and wish I had made it much sooner because it is sooooo good! It’s a moist, cheesy cornbread with bacon, onion, and pimiento added in. And also, of course, jalapenos, which give the cornbread a nice spicy kick.

Zesty Watermelon Salsa
Watermelon is one of my favorite things to eat in the summer–so I just had to post a watermelon recipe before the season ends! I saw this recipe at CountryLiving.com, and I knew right away I wanted to try it. The juicy, sweet watermelon gets a lively kick when it’s mixed with the jalapeno peppers, cilantro, red onion, and juice of fresh limes. Yum! It’s great served with your favorite tortilla chips. I think you’ll enjoy this unique combination of sweet, spicy, and savory flavors. This recipe makes 8 servings, and each 1/2 cup serving is only about 23 calories. Enjoy!

If you’re wanting a summery snack and a change from your typical salsa, you’ll have to try out this Blueberry Salsa! I found the recipe at SouthernLiving.com. It’s a mildly spicy salsa, and it’s a great way to use fresh blueberries during blueberry season. It also has fresh cilantro and red bell pepper in it, which I love. You can serve it with your favorite tortilla chips—I like it with those blue corn tortilla chips.Continue reading
