Recipe:

1. Bring blueberries and lemon juice to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; pour through a wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, using the back of a spoon to squeeze out juice. Discard smushed blueberries.
2. Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a saucepan (if you have two saucepans you can start this while you smush the blueberries); add 3 family-sized tea bags; let stand 5 minutes. Discard tea bags. Stir in sugar and blueberry juice mixture. Pour into a pitcher; cover and put in the fridge for 1 hour. Serve over ice.

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or sugtgseions? Thank you

      Hi Trudy, It depends on the platform. Blogger is really user friendly and if you’re starting out all on your own with no web designer, you may want to start there. WordPress is what we use now. It gives you more options, but it’s much harder to navigate. Hope that helps! xo

  • Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s
    simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that
    “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!
