Wine Jelly
I just made it and it's currently in post-processing as I type this. I couldn't resist a lick of the ladle after I got the jars into the boiling water and I have to say, even if it doesn't set for some unforseen reason, its's going to be DELICIOUS! I had to reduce the recipe since the bottle of Red Diamond Merlot I was using had EXACTLY 3 cups in it, but it made 6 beautiful 12 oz jars of what I'm certainly hoping is going to be a delicious addition to breakfast.

Fudge Meltaways
I first made this recipe last Christmas, for a family get-together, and they disappeared. I always omit the nuts, though, because I'm not a huge fan and a number of my family members are allergic. Also, even though 1.5 oz of chocolate for the topping seems too small, I've found that it still spreads over most if not all of the dish, and the thinness makes it nice and crispy.
