I got this out of Southern Living magazine and every recipe I have ever got from them has been excellent. I have not tried this one yet but I am sure it is delicious!!! I have the lemons bought so I will make it sometime this week. And the best thing about it, there are only 3 ingredients.....YIPPPEEE!!
