Having a lemonade stand is a childhood rite of passage. “The Lemonade Stand Cookbook” written by Kathy Strahs offers a treasure trove of ideas for making and selling lemonade for kids of all ages.

Strahs, an award-winning author of the “8×8 Cookbook” and “The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook” features her two kids and their friends making and enjoying the recipes from the book. She also gives little tidbits and tips as well as quotes from kids.
I really love the healthy treats and desserts included in the book. The pictures are mouthwatering and I can’t wait to make them with my own kids. My favorites would be Applesauce Oat Muffin, Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread, and Sunflower Crunch Balls. Making these treats and goodies to sell in the lemonade stand is a great way to earn extra money.
“The Lemonade Stand Cookbook” inspires kids everywhere to open their own lemonade stand.
