Hibiscus Lemonade Recipe

With Mother’s Day, holidays and the warm weather approaching, there’s nothing like partaking in a refreshing drink.  Recently on one of my grocery shopping trips I picked up a pack of dried hibiscus flowers to use in the near future.  The future is now and I’m sharing this revivifying Hibiscus Lemonade Recipe with you.

Hibiscus Lemonade 1

Ingredients:

4 Squeezed Lemons

2 Cups Sugar (Feel free to use less if you’re sugar conscious. I’m not 🙂

Water (add to taste)

1/4  cup Dried Hibiscus Flowers

Tools:

Pitcher

Lemon Squeezer

Cheesecloth

Large Spoon

 

Hibiscus Lemonade 2

 

First let’s slice and squeeze the lemons.

Once all your lemons are squeezed add the lemon juice to your pitcher.  Next we’re going to add in our sugar and fill our pitcher with water half way stir and add in the rest and stir until sugar is dissolved.

This is a 36 x 54 piece of cheesecloth.  You’re going to cut approximately a 4 x 4 piece ( I left it doubled to make sure less hibiscus pieces fall through) and you’re going to cut a strip as well and use the strip to tie up the cheesecloth.

Now, place your dried hibiscus in the center of the cheesecloth.

Pull in all four corners of the cheesecloth and tie closed with the cheesecloth strip.

Drop the hibiscus pouch in the lemonade and stir.

Place your Hibiscus Lemonade in the fridge for 1 hour.

Take it out the fridge, stir well.

Now you can remove the Hibiscus pouch, but be sure to squeeze it and remove the excess  flavor.  We don’t waste no FLAVOR!

Place back in the fridge to chill until time to serve.

Serve it up and enjoy.

The Cooking Channel: Enchilada Chicken Bake Recipe

This past week our air conditioner went out.  I was suppose to cook this dish Tuesday, but there was no way I was turning on the oven.  No way.  Today, I was able to make this Enchilada Chicken Bake, a simple quick meal and so many things you can use to substitute these items if you don’t have them on hand.  Here’s what you will need to make this dish.

6 – 8 pieces of chicken tenders (cut them into strips)

1 Packet of Enchilada Sauce Mix

1 Yellow Bell Pepper ( cut into strips)

1 Green Bell Pepper (cut int strips)

1/2 Onion

1 tbl spoon Minced Garlic

Handful of Basil

Shredded Cheese

Preheat your oven on 375 degrees

Cut up and prep vegetables.

Pour Olive Oil inside oven safe dish

Lay chicken strips inside dish.  Depending on how much fat your chicken has on it make sure to remove it. I do leave a bit on for flavor.

Now, we’ll pour on the enchilada sauce mix and after we’ve done that mix it all together well.

Now it’s time to lay on the rest of the ingredients.

Begin with the basil, minced garlic, onions and bell pepper……

Place in oven for 1 hour.  15 minutes before it’s time to remove from oven, top with shredded cheese and place back in oven for 15 more minutes.

I served mine over brown rice.  It can be served over jasmine rice, quinoa, kale, spinach…….  or inside corn or flour taco shells.
