Attempting to find fresh, challenging tips, inspiring meals that I have never tried before, to impress my loved ones with. Looking for quite some time unfortunately could not come across too many interesting things. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this fabulous and easy treat by chance. The dessert looked so delicious on its photo, that called for fast actions.
It was easy to imagine how it's made, how it tastes and how much my hubby will probably like it. Mind you, it is rather simple to delight the man in terms of puddings. Yes, I'm a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyhow, I went to the blog: Ambitiouskitchen and then followed the precise instuctions that have been combined with great photos of the operation. It really makes life much simpler. I can suppose it's a slight effort to shoot pics in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you typically have sticky hands and so i highly appreciate the time and effort she put in for making this blogpost and recipe conveniently followed.
That being said I'm empowered to present my very own recipe in the same way. Many thanks for the idea.
I had been fine tuning the main mixture create it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to say it was a terrific outcome. They enjoyed the flavor, the structure and enjoyed getting a sweet such as this during a hectic workweek. They quite simply requested lots more, many more. So the next occasion I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I am gonna double the quantity .

Easy Homemade Lemonade- Old Fashioned
Just the word lemonade" brings back  childhood memories of  lazy, country summer days in Elberton, Ga. We went there every summer to visit family and if you asked for something to drink, you'd better believe it was gonna be well water, sweet iced tea or a chilled mason jar packed with old fashioned, homemade lemonade!
My great grandfather would down sweating glasses of lemonade back to right back while sitting on the porch, swatting flies and spittin' tobacco. That was one of his favorite ways to activity.
A pitcher of trusted old fashioned, homemade lemonade was among the first drinks I learned how to make as a child. I pretty much taught myself. I am talking about how hard is lemons, sugar and water, ya know. The hardest part is getting that perfect balance of sweetness and tartness.
Simmering the zest creates a really pretty yellow color without having to use a powdered mix or food coloring looked after add a nice tang to the lemonade.
This homemade lemonade recipe is such a classic. It creates one amazing pitcher of sweet, tart, and refreshing lemonade!

1½ - 2 cups sugar
6 cups water, divided
Wash lemons thoroughly.
Roll lemons firmly on a hard surface until they become soft. This is likely to make them easier to juice.
Zest 2-3 lemons. Set aside
In a pot over medium heat, add sugar, lemon zest and 2 cups of water.
Simmer lightly for about 5 minutes or until sugar has dissolves and the mixture has a light yellow color. Do not boil.
Remove from heat.
Juice the lemons.
Add in 4 cups of cold water.
Taste to make sure it's not too sweet for ya, if so add more water.
Fill chilled glasses with ice and pour in the lemonade!
Garnish each glass with sliced lemons.
Store in the refrigerator.
~TIPS~ Serve in glasses filled up with ice! Garnish the individual glasses with slices of lemons as opposed to floating the sliced lemons in the entire pitcher since this can give the lemonade a bitter, peel taste if left too long. Lemonade ice cubes certainly are a great way to keep the lemonade from getting watered down, although I have never had lemonade to last that long in a glass.
