I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

LEMON ICE

LEMON ICE

I love making this lemon ice during the summer. It's a great lower calorie alternative to ice cream. I love the lemon, but also add crushed strawberries to it to make a strawberry lemon ice. And I love the Oh Joy goblets I bought at Target.
Lemon Ice
Ingredients:

3 cups of water
1 cup sugar
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice I usually can get a half a cup with 2 or 3 lemons

Directions:
Boil the water with sugar. In the meantime mix the zest with the lemon juice. After the sugar water reaches boiling, remove from heat and combine the lemon juice with the sugar water in a shallow metal pan. I use a round cake pan. Put it in the freezer and stir every half hour for a few hours. This part is crucial because if you forget to stir it, it will just be one huge lemon flavored ice cube. 

Such a fun and yummy summer treat!
