One Lovely Blog Award and Iced-Tea to sweeten the deal..

Yay!!! Someone thinks my blog is lovely and has bestowed upon me my very first blog award! Thank you so much Muneeba from An Edible Symphony. An amazing blog filled with yummy dishes that I have cooked in my own kitchen!!! I cannot thank her enough as I am giddy with excitement and now I can show off my new award. Yippe!!!

Ok down to business...The rules of this award is that I pass it on to ten blogs which I have recently discovered. Then, those recipients are supposed to do the same.

The following blogs have tickled my fancy and are truly unique. I love 'em all, and I hope you feel the same way. To kick off the summer, I made some sun-brewed iced tea. Make some now!!(recipe below); then enjoy a cool glass of iced-tea and surf through all the yummy blogs that I am passing this award to.
So here goes:

Sun-Brewed Iced Tea: I made this because we love drinks in our home. Juices, Iced Tea, Lemonade etc. Times are tough, and I can't keep running to the store all the time. So, I decided to make my own iced-tea. This way I get to control the amount of sugar my family is drinking and that I always have an unlimited supply. There are a billion variations, i.e: add lemons,or mint, or peaches. Just try it your way, with this basic recipe.
Very simply, fill up a glass container with water, add sugar. Stir. Use your judgment on the tea bags, you don't want your iced tea to be too strong (unless you like it that way). I put about 8 Lipton tea bags, covered it with saran wrap and let it out in the sun for 3 hours. Discard tea bags, and put the tea in the fridge till cold. DRINK UP and enjoy the summer!!!!
