Russian Cabbage Borscht
Been living in Russia for 10 years, and this was one of the best I've tried. There are several types of borsch - sweet or sour, tomato-ey or beet-ey. This is a beet-ey, sweet one which is just the type that I love. Tasted very authentic. I put in two medium sized beets (more than the recipe called for), and about 1.25L of broth (also more). I also added 350g of cubed beef. Simmered for about 4 hours. I would say it could about 4 people. No need to debate the merits of certain ingredients and whether they should or shouldn't be in a "real" borsch recipe. The end result is that this tastes exactly as borsch should.

Caribbean Rum Punch
Simple and decent. Was in the mood for something a bit tangy so only used half the sugar. Worked well, got pretty smashed :). The nutmeg gave it an aroma which reminded me of bananas.

Cranberry Meatballs
These really are something special. The only thinkg I changed was adding a few drops of Worcestershire sauce to the meat. Also, for some reason, out here in Russia you can't seem to get cranberry jam or sauce. There is, however, an abundance of "cowberry" jam, which worked wonderfully!
