    For the Diabetic recipes, you need to include the carbs and calories and fat. VERY IMPORTANT for us poor souls with this disease.

    Watermelon, instead

    Jim Grover from CONYERS, Georgia

    We have used a "cannonball" watermelon for the basket, instead of the cantaloupe, although cantaloupe was used as a basket ingredient. Cut the melon in half before attempting to scallop the basket rim. Side note: Cantaloupe halves make great chili bowls.

    Fruit Filled Cantaloupe Basket

    Taylor from

    I put fruits in my husbands lunches and I like to give him a variety....this adds alittle kick to the taste of plain old fruit. I added pepper and then i mixed it all up. And because it was for my husbands lunch I did not use the cantaloupe basket, I just put the fruit mixture into a plastic sandwich box.

    Great Healthy Meal

    Suzanne from

    This a great recipe, especially if you don't have too much time and still want to eat healthy. My kids usually despise eating anything but junk food. I decided to give it a try and they loved it. It tastes absolutely delicious, especially if you choose all ripe fruits. It's really great!
