    Default Lemonade

    1 cup boiling water
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 cup fresh lemon juice (5-6 lemons)
    4 cups cold water
    2-3 mint leaves


    Mix sugar and boiling water. Add lemon juice and stir. Add cold water and stir. Add mint if you want.

    Way yummier than the frozen concentrate. THe original recipe calls for 1 cup sugar. I found 3/4 cup to still be fairly sweet. I might try 1/2 cup next time I make it.

    Default Frozen Hot Chocolate

    I thought this looked amazing. Haven't tried it yet but my hope is it tastes just as good! Great summer drink idea.

    Default Dried Fruit Rolls

    Add this to the list of things that I should've done earlier!! It's like making your own candy, only no sugar.



    DRIED FRUIT ROLLS
    Basic fruit rolls: puree fruit in a blender, pour onto parchment paper about 1/8" thick, and bake on a cookie sheet in a 200F oven for 2-4 hours until completely dried out.


    I made them last night with apple raspberry - 3 apples, handful of frozen raspberries. Cooked in a pot first, then zipped in the Magic Bullet when they were soft and cooled. Next time I'd put them in strips instead of one big pan of it. The inside took longer to dry out and by then the outside was overdone. Tasted awesome either way though!

    Going to try strawberry banana next.

    Default Homemade Tortillas/wraps

    I think this is from Poor Girl Eats Well as well. Love that site!

    Homemade Tortillas
    Mix together:
    2 c. flour
    1 t. salt
    Cut in with pastry blender or two knives:
    ¼ c. butter (slightly softened)
    When it looks like crumbs, add gradually:
    ½ c. room temperature water
    Toss with a fork to make stiff dough. Knead thoroughly until smooth and flecked with air bubbles. (Just a few minutes.) Refrigerate 4-24 hours and allow to come to room temperature before rolling out.
    Divide dough into 8-11 balls, depending on how big you want your tortillas. Roll as thin as possible on a lightly floured surface. Heat an ungreased electric griddle or cast iron skillet very hot (400 degrees) and drop tortillas on it.

    Cook about 20 seconds, until lightly flecked with brown on one side, then flip until brown spots appear on the other side.

    I poke holes in them on purpose, just so everyone knows they're homemade. Really. If you make square-ish tortillas, people will know they're homemade, too.
    Serve immediately or refrigerate (or freeze) in airtight container.

    Homemade with Whole Grain Tortillas
    Healthy Upgrade

    Half whole grain flour is better than all white flour, I figure. If you only have traditional whole wheat flour, the tortillas are going to be more dense than you’re used to in the store, and they’re not all that easy to roll out.

    This is an old photo of the 1/2 and 1/2 tortillas. The wheat version (left) is rather thick, and "easily pliable" aren't words you'd use to describe the corn. See how it's suspended in midair over the edge of the plate? Tasty, but lacking.
    Mix together:
    1 c. white flour
    1 c. whole wheat flour or cornmeal
    1 t. salt
    (good results with 1 c. whole wheat, 1/2 c. cornmeal and 1/2 c. white flour; half whole wheat/half corn is OK but crumbly; do NOT try even 3/4 cornmeal — way too difficult to maneuver, lots of frustration and a late dinner will result!)
    Cut in with pastry blender or two knives:
    ¼ c. coconut oil or butter or lard (slightly softened)
    When it looks like crumbs, add gradually:
    ½ c. room temperature water
    Follow directions above to cook.

    100% Whole Wheat Homemade Tortillas
    HealthiER Upgrade


    If you get them rolled out thin enough, they might even bubble up!
    I tried a new kind of whole wheat flour with GREAT results! I am so excited! There was no screaming or frustration while rolling these babies out! Regular whole wheat is pretty tough to get thin. Try “hard white whole wheat” which is sold in grocery stores under King Arthur’s brand as “White Whole Wheat Flour”. It is unbleached and unbromated. It’s my new standby (only flour I’ll use) for tortillas.
    Mix together:
    2 c. white whole wheat flour
    1 tsp. salt
    cut in: 1/4 cup coconut oil or butter or lard
    Add 1/2 cup water and knead well.
    Follow directions above to finish.



    I can't find white whole wheat flour anywhere! If anyone knows where to find it, LMK. I used the half whole wheat/half white flour method and they were dense, but tasty! Going to have to roll them extra thin next time, like paper thin. SO much cheaper than buying them!!
