"...The Best Lemonade folks spend countless hours hand-squeezing case after case of fresh lemons and limes to keep up with the demand for their refreshing beverages. Regular and strawberry lemonade and limeade are back to keep the crowds refreshed with a dose of energy-boosting vitamin C. Maine Root..."
"...The Best Lemonade folks are back, citrus squeezers in hand, to make regular and strawberry lemonade and regular and strawberry limeade to keep the crowds refreshed. They squeeze case upon case of fresh lemons and limes nonstop to keep up with the demand for the refreshing beverages. Children of the Kettle Corn..."
"...I imagined myself in a clapboard house with a porch festooned with flags and bunting. I would be the consummate host (by then surely I would know someone to invite), thinking nothing of hand-squeezing 50 lemons into a hobnail pitcher or spending the day making my mother's fried pies..."
"...The confusion is indicative of the scattershot approach of the volume as a whole: Many of the essays are only nominally about the subject at hand, and those authors that do stick to the topic are so broad in their interpretation of the terms of debate that little in the way of constructive dialogue emerges. Add to this a few genuine lemons (Laura Kipnis and Jennifer Reeder's it-would-be-offensive-if-it-weren't-so-damned-silly "White Trash Girl," and Mike Hill's hyper-academic "Can Whiteness Speak?"), and White Trash borders on the tedious...."
"...Michi Ramen's owner Fredrick Lee also came to the restaurant industry from tech (website design), as did Home Slice Pizza co-owner Joe Strickland, a onetime programmer for Dell. Jack Mathews is a video-game designer who co-founded a popular food blog called Love & Lemons with his wife Jeanine Donofrio..."
"...1) Love and Lemons (www.loveandlemons.com) Although all of these blogs are marvelous, and all demonstrate the three major attributes of a great blog (regular posting, personality, and useful information), what lifts Love and Lemons into first place is how beautifully designed it is – both a wellspring of great information and a joy to look upon...."
"...2) Love and Lemons (www.loveandlemons.com) Last year's first-place winner has continued to excel throughout the year, helped no doubt by Jeanine Donofrio's career change to "nearly full-time blogger and food stylist." The scope of the blog continues to be expansive (recipes, books, gadgets), and the site is easy to navigate, beautiful, and well-written...."
"...When life hands you lemons make lemonade. Or in this case, when rains close the Trojan Pleasure Cart at ACL, get them to donate the shiny vibes for a Gay Place Giveaway (with vibrators)...."
"...Ray Charles’ opening invocation, “Come Rain or Come Shine,” comes up like the sun, in immediate contrast to Jimmy Ricks’ impossible froggy baritone grounding LaVern Baker on “You’re the Boss.” The Ikettes' tart “I’m Blue (the Gong-Gong Song)” then bangs a gong. The ceremony has begun. The former Betty LaVett (now Bettye LaVette; born Betty Haskin) squeezes lemons for “My Man – He’s a Lovin’ Man,” more Motown insouciance than Atlantic/Stax come-on..."
"...Out of the tub they spill, dozens upon dozens of crawfish, a cataract of crustaceans, their orangey-red rawness set off by the sun-bright yellow corn on the cob and lemons nestled among them. Their shells aren't shiny, but the smooth evenness of the light makes them appear to glow, and the lushness of the colors combined with the precise moment being captured – the instant that boiled-up goodness hits the weathered wood of the picnic table – just calls out to you to come and get it..."
"..."She sold tickets," Allen recalls. "I sold setups when I was a little bitty kid, just walking around selling ice and lemons" to all the folks who had brought their own bottles since Lubbock was dry..."
"...Their latest, April’s When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold (Rhymesayers), finds Ant shutting down the sampling in lieu of live instrumentation, a decision that puts Lemons’ uniformity in stark contrast to 2005’s uneven You Can’t Imagine How Much Fun We’re Having. Lyrically, Slug (real name Sean Daley) veers off from Imagine as well, pushing the attention away from himself by taking a look at the hookers, drunks, warehouse workers, and waitresses he runs into on a daily basis...."
"...The scenery captured by Guy Godfree’s cinematography is always captivating, and his ability to frame so much of the story inside a dark, one-room house without the images becoming repetitive or claustrophobic is truly remarkable. There’s much to appreciate in Maudie, especially if you’re a fan of odd-pair love stories, but don’t expect to learn much about what drives folk artists to create or what makes a woman pelted by life’s lemons squeeze them into lemonade..."
"...1) LOVE & LEMONS Another year of hitting the ball out of the park for Jeanine Donofrio. This blog has kept up with frequent posting, topical recipes, engaging writing, and as always, the graphic design is stunning..."
"...We spent the next few days in the Northern region of Lombardy on the Lago di Garda , one of the largest lakes in Italy, scented with pine and fresh lemons, in view of the gloriously snow-capped Alps. This put us a comfortable distance from Verona, the site of the VinItaly wine expo, one of the largest in the world...."
"...Limonade Tous les Jours: From Lemons, Champagne..."
"...The throngs of Ugly people, a term of endearment to anyone who knows Slug and Ant, soaked up two tracks from 2002’s God Loves Ugly – the title track and “One of a Kind” – before Slug’s first vocal profession of Austin love (a recount of their SXSW debut in 1998 and his exploits with Murs and Blueprint). “Puppets,” “The Rooster,” “Shoulda Known,” “Painting,” and “Like the Rest of Us,” from last year’s When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint that Shit Gold, dove even deeper into the character sketches of beat-up, beaten-down head cases Slug knows too well...."
"...The duo of rapper Slug and producer Ant named their latest LP Southsiders for the neighborhood that raised them. Slug has diffused a lot of wisdom through years of heart-on-the-sleeve raps but none wiser than this: When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold. – Thomas Fawcett..."
"...As the lawsuit grinds through the Israeli legal system, Salma and Minister Navon become a metaphor for the intractable nature of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with Mira caught somewhere in the middle. Riklis, who helmed 2004's equally fine The Syrian Bride, has rendered in microcosm the entire history of the Middle East: land grabs and lemons, sorrow and citrus..."
