Homemade Horseradish
This recipe is great. I made it again recently and gave a jar to my neighbor. She's Polish and has always liked to have horseradish on hand for sandwiches, so I wondered if this would taste authentic to her. She loved it, and now I'm on order to make some for her every time I put together a batch because it's so much better than store-bought. My husband loves this, too--both for its taste and for its "medicinal" qualities. He tends to get sinus headaches, and a spoonful of this horseradish pretty much cures him! It seems to keep well in the fridge, as long as it's in an air- tight jar. (My neighbor suggested turning the jar upside down every so often to keep the liquid well distributed.) We're still using the horseradish I made at Christmas (2+ months ago), and it has stayed hot and tasty. One last thing: We had guests recently and decided to smoke a ham outdoors. My husband covered the ham with this horseradish, and it was terrific--made the outside a little crunchy but didn't overpower the ham flavor. Even the little kids (ages 2, 5, and 7) loved it. Thanks, BOOK_WORM!

Pecan Pie V
This recipe is top of the line. My husband is from the south, and pecan pie has always been his favorite dessert. He says that this recipe makes the best pie he has ever eaten. I've made this recipe many times, and I've never had a problem. I always follow it exactly, including the baking times and temperatures, except that I usually add more pecans, especially to put pecan halves on the top (before baking) so that it looks special, since this is his "birthday pie." If you're looking for an easy, fool-proof pecan-pie recipe, this is it; it's much, much better than any corn-syrup (or other pecan-pie) recipe, and I've tried quite a few. Thanks, Elaine!

Fruit Cocktail Cake
I don't like giving this recipe only three stars, but it really didn't come out well. It was super easy to make and mine took an hour in the oven when I made it for Easter dessert yesterday. But even though I cut the sugar by about a third, it was still overpoweringly sweet. My other complaint is that it didn't taste at all of fruit, just of sugar (and of the cinnamon I added based on other reviewers' suggestions). I don't know what to do to make this cake taste of fruit, so I probably won't make this again. But I'm open to suggestions.
