Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Easy Homemade Lemonade!

About 3 months ago I discovered this.
It’s 100% organic lemon juice!
With the price of lemons and the amount of juice you get out of one, this to me is a great deal. It’s $2.99 for 12.5 fl. oz. Not to mention it makes making lemonade a snap!
Here’s a recipe that I’ve been using.
  • 3/4 cup sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
2  Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes.
Serve with ice, sliced lemons. Serves 4-6.
This is such a special summertime treat! Enjoy!
