Happy Father’s Day to all your dads out there! My daughter, Leigh, wanted to make something special for Father’s Day for her dad and mine, so she suggested a Watermelon Sorbet recipe perfect for this time of year. She went searching for a way to make sorbet without an ice cream maker (since we don’t have one). She adapted this recipe from Taste of Home, and this 4 ingredient recipe came out fabulous! All of you dads (moms and kids too) are going to love it! This makes a great dessert recipe to serve for Fourth of July, Labor Day and all summer long. Enjoy and cheers to a great week ahead!
