Liam’s Lemonade

Liam's Lemonade

My son Liam loves to cook!  The other day he asked if he could make homemade lemonade.  I was happy to oblige.  I got out the stuff and he told me to walk away.  He was going to do it all.  I told him that I would need to help as he hasn’t graduated to using the stove or a sharp knife yet.  While he objected, he finally agreed as he really wanted lemonade.  Just to set the record straight, all I did was cut the lemons in half and heat up the simple syrup.

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

The past week the weather has been a little cold.  My son told me that he really wanted some hot chocolate to heat him up. I was too happy to oblige, as I love hot chocolate. I went to all of the stores around me and every single hot chocolate mix that I found, contained sugar and sucralose (an artificial sweetener). I don’t have any issue with people using artificial sweeteners, but my son and I both get an off taste from them. I can’t explain it, but it just does not taste right to us. So after a quick scan of three supermarket aisles, I decided that the commercial brands were out. Therefore, I had to make my own mix. Come to find out, making homemade hot chocolate is quite simple. Mix a few ingredients, add some hot water and boom. Homemade Hot Chocolate!  The homemade hot chocolate mix, is simple and delicious!
