Lemons, wearing a hat of sugar, then roasted with water and vanilla bean added -- should morph into the most delectable lemonade ever, yes?

Iced tea, anyone?
I cook, bake, eat chocolate, and sneak out to Starbucks from northern California, where I live with my family. I wrote a book, Queen of the Castle: 52 Weeks of Encouragement for the Uninspired, Domestically Challenged or Just Plain Tired Homemaker, because I think running a home and loving your family is one of the most important jobs in the world. And some of us? Could use a little help.
