Blueberry Mint Lemonade

Blueberry Lemonade -  -- Oh my goodness, so delish!

You might remember reading my previous post for Mint Lemonade back in January.  It is still one of my favorite drinks.  I first tried Mint Lemonade several years ago from the Cleveland Airport Marriott.   They even made me a special pitcher just for me on my wedding day!  I can't get enough of it.  Hence, I knew I had to attempt to re-create it.  My version definitely came out a success (even though Marriott's version I will hold very close to my heart. ) Since I had several Meyer Lemons on

Strawberry Lemon Bars

Meyer Lemon & Poppyseed Cake


This week, my neighbor gave me several Meyer Lemons from his friends tree.  I was super excited to make some new "sweet" recipes with these lemons.  This was the first lemon recipe that I made with them.  It was super delicious and had tons of flavor!  I dusted with powdered sugar for the picture, but it also tastes great with a powdered sugar glaze.  This was recipe was adapted from Alaska from Scratch. I have plenty more lemons to make some more recipes with.  I'm definitely open to any
