When I was 20 years old, I participated in the Walt Disney World College Program. I was a quick service hostess at the Disney-MGM Studios’ Sunset Ranch Market. While I was there I met a lot of people. Molly and I were co-workers who spent a lot of time together during the four months we were down there.
My boys and I love a tall glass of lemonade. My favorite lemonades are from Chick-Fil-A and Wendy’s. When I order a lemonade from my Wendy’s I usually order the strawberry lemonade. This is at home version of the strawberry lemonade from Wendy’s. Continue reading Quick Strawberry Lemonade→
We love our ice tea and lemonade at our house. When we go out to eat at a restaurant called Bob Evans, I almost order a flavored ice tea. Yum!
I decided I needed to recreate the flavored ice tea at my house. Especially since summer is going to be here before we know it.
My iced tea is made in my coffee maker. Last July, I got rid of my Keurig. I loved it for a long time but had been using my own grounds in little reusable coffee filters the majority of the time so I decided I would just bite the bullet and go back to a traditional coffee maker. I ended up with a Hamilton Beach Brewstation. Instead of a glass carafe, there is a removable reservoir. It has a setting on it for iced coffee. I used it for iced tea instead. Hey, it works and is delicious. Just make sure you wash the reservoir out before and after brewing the tea because you don’t want it the tea to taste like coffee and vice versa.
Now onto the raspberry simple syrup.

My favorite smoothie from Tropical Smoothie is the Blimey Limey. I decided to recreate it but there is a lack of recipes for copycat “Blimey Limey” recipes. Eventually I found one recipe so I adapted the recipe a little bit by removing the sweetener. I loved it without the sweetener.
If I could describe this creamer, I would say yum!
I made a batch of this on Monday evening. The next morning, my coffee maker decided not to work. 😦 Finally my husband was able to get it to work on Wednesday afternoon. We don’t know why it stopped working and why it began to work once again. Crazy.
Wednesday evening, I was able to have a cup of coffee with this creamer. It was even better then on Monday.
