Welcome to my cooking blog. My name is Michelle Jenkins. Let me start by admitting that these are NOT gourmet meals, they are NOT fine dining, but they are mine. I have cooked all of these recipes and taken my own photos. They are fairly simple recipes, most of them are quick to prepare and cook and all of them are delicious. I only post my successes! If something doesn't work out, I don't post it. I hope you enjoy this blog.

Easy Iced Tea

I've never been a big fan of Iced Tea because those that I find on the run at a service station are always too sweet. I like my tea strong and all I can taste in the bottled ones is sugar and flavouring. This Iced Tea will knock your socks off. It's very flavoursome and great on a hot summer's day.


  • One pot of leaf tea (I NEVER use tea-bags so don't have any in the house)
  • Extra litre or so of cold water
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  1. Make a pot of tea and let it cool to room temperature
  2. Pour into a jug, add the extra water, sugar and lemon juice and stir well
  3. Refrigerate overnight preferably. If you can't wait that long, place ice cubes in the jug and wait until it's very cold
  4. This Iced Tea is best served really cold.
Note: Everyone has different taste in tea, but the recipe is very versatile...if it's too bitter, reduce the lemon juice. If it's too sweet, reduce the sugar. If it's too strong, reduce the amount of leaf tea. See...so easy!!!  It may take a few times to get it perfect to your liking, but when you do it is...D-E-L-icious  XD
