Synopsis: Lemonade stands have become big business. Kids have been running them for decades, whether to raise money for a new bike, for a charitable cause, or simply to conquer boredom. Inspired by dozens of kid entrepreneurs from all over the country, Kathy Strahs pours her expertise as a food writer, entrepreneur and mother of two into the ultimate guide to setting up one’s own lemonade stand. Step-by-step illustrations and full-color photographs of each recipe (lemonades and snacks) and many creative crafts make each page easy and fun for budding entrepreneurs.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: Yes, I really would like to read The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook.  Of course my sister would love any cookbook!


One (or more) Sentence Summary: OMG - LOVED IT!  I remember (just a few years ago) my sister and friends having a lemonade stand in our neighborhood. We had so much fun.  If our parents had The Lemonade Stand Cookbook, we probably would have spent our summer making drinks, sweet treats and crafts. Our stand would have totally been the one to stop by and make a purchase!  The Lemonade Stand Cookbook is filled with great drink recipes and even includes classic lemonade.  The drink recipes are easy to follow with great photos to assist in the process.
My sister and I have made a list of the sweet treat recipes we can't wait to make.  A few of our favorites are the Polka-dot Blondies, Applesauce Oat Muffins, Zucchini Walnut Bread, and Double Chocolate Mini Muffins.  Just like the drink recipes, the directions are easy to follow with pictures to help along the way.  

The Lemonade Stand Cookbook even has a section on snacks.  We have made the No-Bake Trail Mix Bars for our volleyball team and we all loved them.  It was a perfect and health snack during our long summer practices.  

My sister loves all the baking and making, but I am more the crafty twin!  The No-Loom Rubber Band Bracelets and Friendship Bracelets and Necklaces are so fun to make.  Just a few years ago, we use to make these all summer long.  My mom loves crafts too and she ran out to the store to buy supplies. We had to hear all the stories of her and her friends making similar bracelets growing up (not the rubber band ones - they didn't have those in the olden days!).  I really liked the Fingerknit Scarves.  My sister and I learned how to finger knit at school during Colonial Day - we raided our mom's yarn stash and had so much fun.

Thanks for reading my review!  Have a great summer.


  1. My kids and I would use this to no end.

  2. I have always lived way out in the country so never had a lemonade stand. But the grandkids would love this. Thanks for the chance to win.

  3. My cousins had a lemonade stand one time. Only problem - they forgot to add sugar. Too funny.
