Baptism Celebration

We recently just had my son baptized and then had everyone over for lunch.  Here are a couple of pictures from the celebration.

These cupcakes were inspired by my friends mom who made these DELICIOUS cupcakes for her Royal Wedding watching party.  Since I used a lot of brown to decorate I decided to try the chocolate and strawberry cupcake recipe from Tidy Mom.

Another dish that everyone seemed to enjoy was my Watermelon Summer Salad.  I adapted it from a couple of different recipes that I had.  Here is my version:

Watermelon Summer Salad


  • 3/4 cup halved, thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 quarts seeded, cubed watermelon
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup pitted black olive halves
  • 1 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Place the onion slices in a small bowl with the lime juice. The acid of the lime will mellow the flavor of the raw onion. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the watermelon cubes, feta cheese, black olives, onions with the lime juice, and mint. Drizzle olive oil over it all, and toss to blend.
