Guinness(R) Irish Stew
This was delicious. Very similar to what we had while visiting Ireland. I cut my potatoes and carrots in larger chunks and added them after 1 1/2 hrs of simmering beef because they take longer to cook than smaller pieces. I think the directions mean cover "skillet" instead of "dutch oven" in step five and then add everything to beef in dutch oven in step six. At least that's the way I made it and it turned out great. I also added extra sprig of fresh thyme and a sprig of rosemary. I think you could substitute tsp of thyme and rosemary if fresh not on hand. Add salt and pepper to taste. I also think this would be a good slow cooker recipe. Gave this to friends for a thank you gift and they raved about it.

Seasoned Turkey Burgers
Very Tasty and easy. 20mins seems too long for grilling these burgers though. 6-7 mins per side on medium/low heat was plenty. I used 2 lbs meat and 1pkg lipton beefy onin soup mix.

Easy Raspberry Lemonade
I used one 12oz can apple raspberry(couldn't find raspberry lemonade)juice and one 12oz can lemonade,6C water, 1 small lime or half of a large lime squeezed and 24 oz or so of sierra mist. For individual cocktails I made the base without the soda, fill 10z glass with ice, one shot of citrus vodka, pour base over to fill cup 2/3rds full and top off with soda(garnish with rasperries and mint for extra touch) They were a huge hit! Great during hot days by pool. For larger party add 2C citrus vodka and soda to pitcher for easier serving.
