I love cooking almost as much as shopping, and test new recipes on my husband and boys whenever possible. Check out my latest “We’ll definitely be making this again!” favorites.’
Lynette’s Famous Iced Tea
When teenage boys are asking for the recipe so they can have their moms make it too, you know it’s got to be good! I’ve been making this tea for over 20 years, it’s the BEST!
For a 2-qt. pitcher of tea, boil water and then pour over 2 family size Lipton tea bags, 2 Constant Comment tea bags (I use all decaf tea), several sprigs of fresh mint (if you have them). Steep this for about 3 hours, stir in 1 1/2 cups sugar, then fill the pitcher to the rim with cold water and chill. We always have this tea in our fridge!
Ron and I are big smoothie fans, almost every morning we mix up the following in a blender, it makes enough for two people:
1 c. kefir OR soy milk OR almond milk
2 scoops protein powder
(our favorite is Goatein from Garden of Life)
3 T. Barleans High Lignan Flax Oil
2 T. ground flax seed
2 c. frozen fruit
(we mix varieties of blueberries, cherries, mango, raspberries, etc.)
Add a little water if it’s too thick.
