As a mother, and now a grandmother, family and home are very important to me. Some of my favorites memories are of being in the kitchen and cooking with my own mom. Having a good meal over the dinner table with family is priceless! But, making it happen is hard work. I wanted to share with you some of my secrets, tasty dishes, and cooking wisdom. So, that your dinner table will become a gathering place for your own family that they too will come to cherish.....Yours truly, Mystery Mom.

Fresh Homemade Lemonade

   Who doesn't like a nice glass of cool fresh lemonade on a hot Summer's day ?  Or, try blending  the lemonade with ice into a nice fresh, tangy smoothie.

Fresh Homemade Lemonade
Several Lemons
2 Cups of Sugar
1 Cup of Water
2 Cups of Lemon Juice
1 gallon of Water

Take some lemons and squeeze the juice out of them.

Take the 2 cups of sugar, 1 cup of water, pour them into a small sauce pan and heat on low.  Stir occasionally  until all the sugar is dissolved.

Take the simple syrup and pour it into a jar containing 1 gallon of water.  Then add the 2 cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice.  Stir.  Garnish with sliced lemons, and chill.
