I love the show by Michael Smith called Chef At Home my favorite epsode has to be the one called Lemonade Stand so i thought why not have a recipe (or two) from that epsode so first is the homemade lemonade recipe

Fresh Squeezed Lemonade
4 cups sugar
8 cups water
Zest of 4 lemons
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (4-6 lemons)
4 tbsp grated ginger
Pinch salt


Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

Pour the sugar into a saucepan along with 2 cups of the water. Add the lemon zest and bring to a simmer. Continue cooking until the sugar has completely dissolved. Turn the heat off and stir in grated ginger and salt. Pour into a large pitcher and add 6 cups of water and plenty of ice. Stir well.

Note : to make it pink put a little of gendline syurp ( the stuff you put in shirly temples)

Homemade Doughnuts


For the doughnuts

4 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp ground nutmeg
1/2 stick (2 ounces, 1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons) of butter, melted
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 eggs
For the Cinnamon Sugar Coating
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup ground cinnamon


For the doughnuts

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter, buttermilk and eggs. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir well until combined and the mixture forms a dough.
On a floured surface roll the dough until it's about 1” thick. Cut out doughnuts using a 3” round cutter and then cut out the centers with a half inch round cutter.
Drop the doughnuts into the hot oil and fry until they are golden and float to the top. Flip and fry on both sides. Drain on paper towels.

For the Cinnamon Sugar Coating

Whisk together the sugar and cinnamon and toss the hot doughnuts in the mixture.

The musical Jersey Boys has been playing in Toronto for one year — and to celebrate, they’re giving away pizza slices on Thursday, August 20! It doesn’t matter if you’ve seen the show (or even heard of the show!) the pizza is free either way.

The pizza will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis from 11 AM to 1 PM at Yonge/Dundas Square and at the Toronto Centre For The Arts (5040 Yonge St). Pizza slices are limited and we suspect they’ll go fast, so you’ll definitely want to head over earlier rather than later if you’re interested.
