Refreshing chilled in hot weather and a soothing winter drink when heated up. This lemonade is lemony and mild, not overly sweet and doesn’t make your lips pucker. Let the flavor develop in the fridge overnight. Don’t worry about the seeds, because they won’t get crushed in the blender.

It began with posting a few recipes on line for my family. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has more than 1000 Hungarian and International recipes. What started out as a private project turned into a well visited blog. The number of visitors long passed the two million mark. I organized my recipes into an on-line cookbook. On top of the page click on the cookbook to access the recipes. I am not profiting from my blog, so my visitors will not be harassed with advertising or flashy gadgets. Feel free to cut and paste my recipes for your own use. Publication is permitted as long as it is in your own words and with your own photographs. However, I would ask you for an acknowledgement and link-back to my blog. Happy cooking!
