Papa Oriold's Spaetzle
This is exactly the taste I was looking for. Paired it with my Traditional Sauerbraten for a home run. If you don't have a press or ricer, the (traditional) way my Grandmother did it was to put the dough on a cutting board and then "slice" small pieces into the boiling water. It's hard to explain, but basically she would cut about a finger's size of dough and scrape it to the edge of the cutting board. Works great with this recipe!

Dead Man's Cheese Ball
Five stars for inspiration, even though I'm likely to change a few things if I make it again. First, I would definitely use the sharp cheddar (I used mild), and less horseradish. I left out the hot sauce, and would not include it, although I *would* put something in to enhance the flavor, especially if cutting back on the horseradish--maybe white pepper? As far as everything sticking together, mine worked just fine. Maybe the type of cheese or temperature has something to do with it; I think turning it into a dip is a good option if needed. Finally, I suggest putting half the sesame seeds in a bowl that's slightly larger than the ball of cheese and rolling it around in the bowl while sprinkling the rest over top. I used a plate kind-of in this fashion and they coated pretty well. If anyone has ideas for getting a more prominent 'port' flavor, that'd be great, too.

Mummy Toes
Great party idea, and my bad for not following the recipe to get the nails to look quite right. I think adding something inside the wrap would make it better (maybe even something a little sweet?). Also, if I do this again, I'll add red food coloring to ketchup (make it really 'bloody') and drizzle more on the 'bandages'. Might even try to find a wrap that looks more 'bandage-y'.
