Influenster: GoVoxBox Reveal

Fortunately for me I was granted another VoxBox by Influenster and I think this has been the best box for me so far.

Summer is here... and we have Watermelons

I have become obsessed with watermelons. And with the heat that South Florida is already getting I think watermelons are going to be the saving grace. My aunt gave me a ginormous watermelon the other day and I kept wondering what else could I do with this watermelon other than just slobber it down. So I headed to my fav place ever to get a few ideas.

Most people think it just provides just water and sugar but it also is densely rich in other nutrients: thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, magnesium, potassium, zinc, copper, selenium, choline and a few others. So water and sugar it is not. It is made up of 92% water though.

Outside burnt, inside raw is usually the end result of me frying anything. Sorry, I can write code for a computer and come up with a recovery plan for a failed system but DO NOT ASK ME TO FRY anything. So I was very happy to find a recipe for sweet and sour that was mostly oven baked. Chicken prior to going into the oven After searching further I realized there was no way to get away from that dreaded oil.

I found this recipe from the Southern Coupon Junkies blog . This c
