The Last Chapter


It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on Simply Southern Baking.  Where have I been?  Here’s the scoop:

Last fall, I decided to take a few months off from the world of food blogging.  I had been posting less often and was at the point where I needed an extended break from the blog.  At first, I was going to write a post telling you I was taking a break; however, the right words just wouldn’t come out (a serious case of writer’s block).  Well, the months have passed by quickly and I’m finally getting around to sharing what’s been on my mind for quite some time.

After much thought and a few heartfelt talks with my two closest blogging friends, I’ve decided to bring Simply Southern Baking to an end and jump off the food blogging merry-go-round.

This two-ingredient Strawberry Lemonade Tea can be served for any occasion. Kid friendly too!

Don’t put away that lemonade yet!  Fall is not “officially” here for a couple more weeks.

Yes, I know, a lot of you probably only drink lemonade during the hot summer months; however, here in the south (especially where I’m from), we could drink it all year long just like we do our sweet iced tea.

Some of you may have had an “Arnold Palmer” before, which is half tea and half lemonade….BUT, I’ve got a new version that might have you heading to the store right away.
