Making the Perfect Single-Serving Homemade Lemonade

While certainly not a necessary thing to learn in life, knowing how to make your own homemade lemonade is definitely an added bonus.  This step-by-step will show you how to make your own tart, yet sweet glass of lemonade.

1. Take 1 average-sized lemon and cut in half (the little knobs should be on either side).

2. Using a hand juicer (or any other kind of juicer you have), press down on the lemon and move it in circles around the ridges to squeeze the juice out of the lemon.  I usually do this over a medium-sized bowl.

3. Pour 1/4 cup of hot water (the hottest water that you can get out of the tap should be fine) into your glass.

4. Add 2 Tablespoons of sugar to the hot water and stir until the sugar is dissolved.

5. Add 3/4 cup of cold water to the hot water and sugar mixture.

6. Measure out and add 3 Tablespoons of the freshly squeezed lemon juice to the glass and stir (I’m normally able to get about 3 Tablespoons of juice from each lemon- if it’s a little less, it should still taste fine).

7. Add ice and enjoy!

Making an Omelette

  1. Break two eggs and add a splash of water.
  2. Whisk until slightly frothy.
  3. Heat the frying pan to a high temperature (you can check if it’s hot enough by splashing water on it; the water should fizzle off).
  4. Add the eggs to the pan, tilting it to get an even spread.
  5. Immediately turn down the temperature and cover the pan with a lid.
  6. Check frequently to see if the top is cooked (make sure that none of the egg is still liquid).
  7. Once the egg is cooked you can add cheese and other toppings to one half (prepare these in advance).
  8. Fold in half and remove from the stove to serve (the egg should be warm enough to melt any cheese).
