The secret behind the title

When I first met Jason's family, his brother and sister-in-law, Eric and Barbara, had just gotten engaged. Every Sunday, we would eat a huge lunch at their house. Since Barbara was trying to "impress" her future mother-in-law and I was hoping to "impress" someone who I wanted to be my future mother-in-law, we would always help with lunch. (She was not used to that because she raised 2 boys! so we were really making a huge impression on her.)

Well, when making iced tea, we soon learned that you had to put in EXTRA sugar because, well, "the boys like it syrupee".

Now that Jason and I have been married over 12 years, Eric and Barbara over 13 years, we have both learned how to make syrupee tea. I have also been blessed with 2 boys who like sweet tea!

So, while we were preparing Christmas dinner this year, it just hit me what the title should be for my recipe blog that I wanted to start. I will post new or favorite recipes as I have time or cook them!
