Single-Serve Ice Cold Lemonade

July 07, 2015

Is there anything more refreshing on a hot summer day than a tall glass of ice cold lemonade?  That's what's served at our house on days where we are working in the garden or with the animals and we need a refreshing break.  Skip the instant powdered version and make this quick and easy fresh treat!

Single-Serve Ice Cold Lemonade
Makes 1 quart of lemonade

1 large lemon
3 Tablespoons extra fine sugar {can use regular, just shake it longer}, or more to taste

In a quart-size canning jar squeeze the lemon, discarding seeds.  Add sugar, water and ice.  Put the lid on the jar and make sure it's tight.  Shake, shake, shake, and shake some more.  Once the sugar is dissolved, take the lid off, add a straw and drink.

Alternatively, if you have simple syrup in your refrigerator, substitute that for the sugar and you'll just have to give it a quick stir - no shaking required.

My Story: Building A Soap Business To Earn Six Figures In 3 Years

October 10, 2017

As promised, here's a little bit about the business we've created from the ground up.

When I started  Cobble Hill Farm Apothecaryin 2013, it was meant to be a "someday" retirement business. With all of the other soap & skincare companies out there, we honestly had no idea that it would even be a possibility of doing as well as it did so soon. But it has, and for that we are incredibly grateful. (I...

How To Fail At Homesteading.....

October 06, 2017

Ok, so the title is a tad bit dramatic.  But friends, it's simply reality.  I could teach a course on how-to fail at homesteading, particularly this year.


Probably not a good thing since this is a homesteading blog. It seems that the attempt to keep all balls in the air whilst one also tries to also craft a homemade life is, um, not possible. At least not on this small homestead. And at...
