Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
This is really good and definitely best done a day ahead. I skip the sugar and use ginger ale or sprite instead of carbonated water (less chance of the sugar just falling to the bottom). I also skip the maraschino cherries as I don't care for them and they aren't very authentic. Cheap wine is fine here (in fact it's encouraged!). I often use the jugs of burgundy that you can get for around $10.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Very good, although lemons put out a lot less juice than you might think, so buy extras and try to talk your husband into being responsible for juicing them!

Apple Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
This is one of my go-to snacks, and I've been known to eat it straight out of the bowl when I run out of apples. Awesome, and people can never guess what the ingredients are!

Sweet and Spicy Almonds

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
This was fantastic! My only suggestions would be to drain the extra liquid before adding the sugar mixture (to avoid clumps of sugar) and to stir occasionally while cooling to keep the almonds from becoming a solid mass. It was quite sticky and wet at first so I stuck it in the oven at 250 for a while, but in the end it was still wet and sticky until it had cooled. The oven probably wasn't necessary.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
I was just going through my recipe box and realized I'd never rated this recipe. My husband requests these cookies at least weekly, and I have the recipe memorized as a result. His friends sometimes even call to find out if there are cookies in the house and decide whether to visit accordingly. I do bake them at 300 rather than 325 to prevent the bottoms from getting too brown before the cookie itself is done, but that's probably due to my ancient oven and not a reflection on the recipe.

Mom's Cucumbers

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
I'm not super wild about this, but my husband loves it. It's easy enough that he can fix it for himself in a matter of minutes, so two thumbs up!

Garden Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
This isn't so much a recipe as a suggestion of things to throw into a pasta salad, but my husband loves it and will eat an entire batch in a day or two.

Apple Orchard Punch

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
This is very close to the punch my grandmother has made for Christmas and New Year's for as long as I can remember. The only difference is that she garnishes with orange rather than apple slices, which I prefer the look of.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
This is a regular in my house. I mix the dry ingredients in a food processor, add cut up frozen butter until it is in pea-sized pieces or smaller, and then dump it out to be mixed with the rest of the ingredients. Instead of raisins I use frozen wild blueberries (wild blueberries are smaller). I freeze these before cooking on parchment paper and then move them to a tupperware once they're solid. Then I pop them straight into the oven from the freezer with a little sugar on top. They take closer to 25 minutes to cook from frozen.
