"Cool" Recipes for the Hot

It is so hot up here in Bellevue! To beat the heat I have been trying out some "cool" recipes. I heard through the grapevine about making a bowl for frozen or refrigerated food out of ice and adding fruit or flowers to add a pop of color. To make the bowl all you need is...
  • Two stacking bowls
  • Tape
  • Filtered water
  • Sliced fruit, berries, or flower petals
First, place the smaller bowl inside the larger one, fill it with filtered water, tape the side of the smaller bowl to the larger one to prevent it from floating to one side and making an uneven edge. Then add your flower petals, or fruit slices (in my case) to the water. Set the bowl in the freezer and let sit overnight. I placed a heavy object in the center of mine so that the center of the ice bowl would be deeper. 

Another quicker more popular trick is adding fruit or flowers to an ice cube try for flavor infused water.
