Do you find your self eating your store-bought fruits and vegetables without washing them? I hope your answer was NO, but if your answer was yes, you should check out the Dirty Dozen. It rates the fruits and vegetables with the highest and lowest pesticide residue. Thanks to Burp! Where Food Happens.

How do Light and Crispy Shredded Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies sound? There is also a variation using wheat germ and ground flaxseed. Butter Yum uses the shreds left in the bottom of the bag of shredded wheat.

Ezra Pound Cake has a yummy recipe for Parmesan Roasted Broccoli with Pine Nuts. I'm always looking for ways to dress up the veggies without a lot of fat.

Summer arrives next month and this Colorful Black Beans and Rice Salad from Heart N Soul Cooking  

I love these Tovolo Ice Cream Cone Popsicle Molds. They are only $9.99 from Chef Tools. So cute for the kids this summer.

Culinary in the Desert has a beautiful Lime Angel Food Cake with Lime Glaze and Pistachios. If you don't have time to make an angel food cake from scratch, you could use a mix and add grated lime peel to the mix and use this yummy looking glaze and pistachios to the outside.

Recipe Shoebox has a recipe for flubber, yes the kind that you play with like playdough. It sure looks like fun. I was surprised by the ingredients it takes to make it; glue, borax and water.
