Grama's Corn Flake Peanut Butter Cookies
I learned to make a version of these in fourth grade, but the recipe I knew was slightly different. It had 1/2 cup each of sugar and light Karo, but no butter and a whole cup of peanut butter, and then used 6 cups of cornflakes. Those were less sweet than this version would be.

Coconut Ice Cream
I have been craving ice cream lately, but I'm vegan, and the closest source of vegan ice cream to me is 135 miles away, and I can't buy vegan ice cream and get it home. SO... I made this recipe but subbed So Delicious vanilla coconut milk (the kind for drinking/cereal) for the cream and milk. I used the cream of coconut and the full amount of flaked coconut, which I left whole. This stuff is SOOOO good. I couldn't stop stealing bites out of the top of my Cuisinart as it froze.

World's Greatest Martini
This is nearly the ideal recipe for a Perfect Martini, which uses a 50/50 blend of sweet & dry vermouth. A 4:1 gin/vermouth ratio is more traditional, but the recipe gets dryer as time passes. I think originally, martinis were a 50/50 gin & vermouth blend.
