Have you seen those tea commercials (I think it is Luzianne??) where they portray tea as the drink of the summer (with a scene where a grandma and little boy are sitting on a porch swing sipping iced tea). Since I didn’t grow up drinking tea, lemonade is that drink for me. The symbol of a comforting lazy summer day sipping a drink sitting on a porch swing.
All the recipes I shared this week as part of my lemonade themed week capture that essence, that comforting feeling. To me that is a sure sign of a successful week!
This Crunchy Lemonade Chicken was juicy and tender, full of lemon flavor but not overwhelming.
My family could not get enough of this Lemonade Fruit Dip! The tart lemon flavor pairs perfectly with just about any fruit, making for a light summertime snack.
Who knew that I could incorporate lemonade into two main dishes this week! But this Crock-pot Lemonade Chicken and Broccoli was defiantly another keep, even with its more pronounced tart lemon flavor.
I love these Luscious Lemonade Cupcakes! They are tart and tangy! A cupcake flavor I have indulged in for years.
And last but not least, these Lemonade Cookies are what sparked the idea of a whole week centered around lemonade. I don’t know why it took me so long to finally make these cookies but once I did they didn’t last long!
