favorite tried and true party recipes. I've shared them before and they are definitely worth repeating. They are both quick, easy and simply delicious!
Sparkling Cranberry Punch
1 bottle champagne or sparkling wine
1 bottle sprite
2 cans frozen cranberry juice
Add ice cubes and frozen cranberries. For a family friendly version, simply omit the champagne or substitute a bottle of sparking grape juice. This recipe is really versatile in that you can change the flavor by experimenting with other flavors of frozen juice and garnish with a complimentary fruit. You really can't go wrong. Cheers!
1 lb. whole pecans (4cups)
1 tsp cold water
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
Use a fork to beat the egg white with water in a large bowl until frothy, then fold in pecans. Mix sugar, cinnamon and salt together, then mix into pecans. Spread out on a cookie sheet and bake for 1 hour at 250 degrees. Stir occasionally while baking and again when you remove cookie sheet from the oven. Delicious warm, perfect for hostess gifts or goodie bags and they freeze well too. I guarantee rave reviews!
Wishing you all good things in 2013!
I hope all your dreams and wishes come true!
