Addicting. If I had to sum pralines up in one word to someone who doesn't know what this sweet, southern delicacy is, it would certainly be 'addicting.' I fell in love with this insanely rich, sugary and buttery candy in Savannah years ago. The brown sugar just melts in your mouth. I really struggle to stay away from them. So while everyone is busy making their Christmas fudge, I'm working on my traditional pralines (even though there's never a bad time to make or eat them). They also make for nice little gifts because usually, most of our family and friends don't make them .
The summer is quickly coming to an end, so I thought we could say goodbye to it with a proper lemonade. While we may not have been able to do much traveling or beach lounging this year, nothing was stopping us from sitting on our back porch with a cold glass of lemonade in hand. I love making fresh lemonade for myself *ahem* my family. It really does out perform instant lemonade every time! The kids even love helping out with this recipe. They even sat outside and sold this stuff at their first lemonade stand recently (lucky neighbors). They made $20 that day, and it really had me rethinking my life options.
