Fresh watermelon juice and lemonade, a gift for our neighbors who give us fruit from their citrus trees!

Our Favorite Kitchen Tool: The Juicer

Ace does not eat fruits. Or vegetables. It isn’t that he doesn’t like the flavor, he just can’t get over the texture. He was in feeding therapy for nearly a year, and by the end we still struggled to get him to take a single bite of watermelon. He will sometimes eat bananas (which aren’t […]
