Pinterest is a funny place. The food ideas and recipes on pinterest are a mix of over the top perfectly styled beautiful food and things so appalling and scary I find myself making some sort of “ewewewwwwwww” noise out loud. Yesterday I saw a casserole of ground beef topped with crushed Doritos. Pass.

I don’t have to tell you it’s hot outside today. Sometimes hot weather food can be the trickiest of all. You want flavor, refreshment, ease, no oven. These simple ice cubes are my tiny celebration of summer.


Slice citrus and rip mint into empty cube trays. Fill with water and freeze. I used a mix of lemon, lime, and orange although almost any fruit would work. Raspberries would be particularly pretty especially floating in a summery cocktail or sangria.
