This week I’m excited to release my brand new ebook, Easy Homemade: Homemade Pantry Staples for the Busy Modern Family, which is on sale for just $0.99!
I don’t know about you, but for a long time I considered cooking from scratch to be something that only chefs or crazy people did (ha!). I’ve since discovered how easy it is to make from scratch so many of the things we never even thought twice about buying.
And I’ve also discovered a few fun recipes along the way too, like homemade lemonade, which is delicious and refreshing!
Easy Homemade Lemonade
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 6 lemons
- 4 cups cold water
In a small saucepan, combine 3/4 cup water and sugar and heat over medium-high heat, until the sugar is dissolved into a simple syrup.
While that’s cooking, juice your lemons.
TIP: Roll your lemons on the counter, pressing down with the heel of your hand, to make them easier to juice.
In a pitcher, combine the simple syrup, lemon juice and cold water. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.
Add 1 bunch of basil or mint to the saucepan to make a flavored simple syrup. Strain before combining with the lemon juice and water.
Add a pint of pureed strawberries for easy strawberry lemonade.
Yield: (4) 12-oz. glasses
Shelf life: 3-5 days
Discover more than 60 recipes for homemade kitchen staples like these in Easy Homemade, which is available for your Kindle, Nook or a full-color PDF to read on your computer for just $0.99 this week only!

Mandi Ehman lives in wild, wonderful West Virginia with her husband of ten years and four beautiful, spunky little girls. As a full-time work-at-home, homeschooling mom, she runs Life Your Way, a site that blends intentional and creative living, and Jungle Deals & Steals, where it’s all Amazon, all the time.
I’m all for initiatives that support education, so I was really excited to hear about these worthy programs that have teamed up with Walmart to offer special bonuses: Kellogg’s Family Rewards, Box Tops for Education, and Labels for Education.
Perhaps I’m a little biased because I’ve always been a voracious reader myself and encourage my kids to read frequently as well, but my favorite of the three is Kellogg’s Family Rewards FREE Scholastic books promotion. Right now when you purchase specially marked packages of Kellogg’s products at Walmart, you’ll receive a promo code good towards earning FREE Scholastic books. For each two codes that you enter, you’ll receive a FREE book from Scholastic Book Club (up to a $5 value).
- Purchase purchase any two specially marked participating Kellogg’s products (or one specially marked Kellogg’s Tri-Pack) at Walmart.
- Register with Kellogg’s Family Rewards and enter the codes printed on the inside of the packaging. Bonus: get a FREE promo code to get you started from Walmart on Facebook, so you’ll need just one additional code to get your FREE book!
- Once you’ve entered two of the Scholastic-specific codes, you’ll automatically receive an email at the email address you registered with that includes instructions on how to redeem your FREE book. My email showed up immediately after I entered my codes.
There’s no limit to the number of times a household can redeem this offer. With the way my kids tear through cereal, I’m thinking we may need to build a library before the year is over!
Be sure to check out these other programs as well:
Box Tops for Education is a General Mills program donates a portion of product proceeds to local schools. Right now, Walmart have carries over 100 products with 4X Box Tops bonuses on them right now, earning your school $0.40 for each bonus Box Top redeemed! Plus you can score FREE eBoxTops from Walmart on Facebook right now.
Labels for Education, supported by Campbell’s and others, is the oldest of the education funding programs — I remember saving Campbell’s soup labels to turn in at school when I was a child! Look for specially marked packages from Campbell’s and Dannon to earn bonus LFE points for your school during the back to school season.
I hope you’ll consider adding a few participating items from these programs to your cart on your next shopping trip!
