Floating Island Punch
Got rave reviews on this punch at a baby shower on Saturday. I followed the advice of others and did not use the simple syrup. Used 1 can each of OJ and pink lemonade, ginger ale, Talking Rain Citrus twist water for the carbonated water, and lemon sorbet as I couldn't find a small orange sherbet. Instead of ice, which I think waters it down, I cut and froze rounds of Cara Cara oranges. The first batch of punch was gone about 5 minutes after I made it. I didn't count on this, so had to improve with a second batch without all the ingredients. Thanks for the recipe of an easy to make punch that is very tasty.

Emily's Famous Sloppy Joes
Ultimate to-die-for sloppy joes on a winter night. I've made this recipe for quite some time. Every time I serve it for guests, I'm always asked for the recipe. Ah....if only I could claim it! Thank you for a great recipe. Reading some reviews, sounds like there might be some taste differences going on. That being said, I would recommend playing around with the chili powder, brown sugar and garlic. My husband has had it several times with me and said tonight was one of the best. I did keep the brown sugar as is, I put in two teaspoons of chili powder for our guests (instead of three/one tablespoon) and put in tons on garlic. But then again, I'm one of those people who looked at the first initial 3 cloves of garlic and immediately doubled it! One thing I've found through the years is the way garlic is presented into a dish. I used to mince it, but found a Pampered Chef garlic press at a party I can't live without. Not only is it faster and easier than mincing, but it releases the juices of the garlic into your dishes (a tip for not only this dish, but others as well). All in all, I obviously could go on about it. I had a very particular person at my table tonight and he loved it, so I knew this was the ultimate score. Thank again!!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
To die for!! I've been toying with biscotti recipes for a couple of years, but this is the best. Tart, sweet and salty...all the best flavors. I did the recipe exactly as mentioned (make sure you have unsalted pistachios, or heed the suggestion.) A very good Christmas gift with the colors. One thing I realized: I had some ends that didn't get double baked and they were just as good, but a better texture for those who don't like the hard, crispy, traditional biscotti. Will try as regular cookies as well! Thank you so much for an excellent recipe.
