...and take advantage of Nature's bounty.
We've all heard the adage about what to do when life hands you lemons. During a visit to my brother's home in Tucson before the New Year's celebration and holiday I was able to take advantage of what nature had to offer and grabbed some lemons, limes and oranges from the trees in the back yard. Something about 'fresh from the tree' lemons didn't seem fitting for lemonade, especially since we had a very strong cold front and some snow after I got home. That, and being a firm believer that you can't get too much of a good thing, turned me to one of my favorites - cheesecake. Two cheesecake variations are highlighted here, along with a simpler, but equally as delicious, shortbread alternative. Shortbread is a marvelous canvas, as you'll discover.
Have fun, and let something besides lemonade be your lemonade.
