I try out a lot of recipes from the Food Network, magazines, Pinterest, make up my own, etc. Sometimes they turn out, sometimes they don’t. Sometimes I like a recipe, but I don’t love it. I will only post my recipes that I really enjoy, and only after I have had time to tweak them to what I think is shareable. That means that sometimes our guests will get to try things that I may never post. I made some lemon sugar cookies the other day that I thought were good but I was not overjoyed by them, so unfortunately you will not see those. If you stayed with us though and really love them, let me know and I will share the recipe with you.
This next recipe is one that I got off of Pinterest, but had to work really hard at tweaking. It just was not working out for me, but I knew it had potential. So, I added a few a things and minimized a few others and I have to say, I think they are pretty darn good and very summery, which I am trying to make happen. I hope you enjoy.
