A collection of family-favorite recipes, named after our Grandma who used to stand at the porch and call, "Yoo-hoo," to call Grandpa in from the field for dinner.

I love serving a fruity drink with summer dinners. Here are two recipes we've enjoyed lately:
Virgin Watermelon Margaritas
4 c. watermelon, chunks, seeds removed
6 Tbs. fresh lime juice
2 Tbs. sugar
4 C. ice cubes
1/8 tsp. table salt
1/2 lime, cut into wedges for garnish
Combine all ingredients except lime wedges, in a blender; puree until smooth. Divide among 4 glasses. Garnish with lime wedges.
Fresh Strawberry Lemonade
INGREDIENTS: 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 5-8 lemons) - I actually just used the lemon juice you can buy in a bottle 1 cup sugar 2 cups sliced, fresh strawberries
DIRECTIONS: Combine the lemon juice and sugar in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds to combine. Add the strawberries and puree or pulse until the strawberries are at the desired chunkiness. I liked the strawberries slightly chunky but my husband preferred it to be more smooth – blend to your own preference!
Pour the lemon/strawberry mixture into a pitcher and add 4 cups of cold water. Mix well and serve chilled.
