I love no cook recipes in summer months. Now that I am in an even warmer place, there are days when I don’t feel like cooking anything because of the heat. When I chose the theme for Blogging marathon, I wanted to make some quick and easy summer friendly recipes. Last week, I brought home the summer edition recipe book from the local dairy store. The first recipe on the book was this watermelon bites that looked really cute.

Watermelon is in season and they are everywhere. We picked a whole melon during our weekly grocery trip and kids are enjoying the juicy watermelon. I wanted to make some cute shapes for the watermelon bites, but realized that all my cookie cutters are much large than I wanted. That is when I found my linzer cookie cutter that I had bought long back and never even opened. I used the tiny stamps from that kit and they looked really cute.


My first week’s theme in blogging marathon is ‘bite size appetizers’, where I had to make appetizers that can be picked with one hand and eaten. This recipe is a perfect one for season as it combines the sweetness from the watermelon and the heat from the jalapeno cream cheese. It was a perfect bite and it made us keep going back to more.
