The best Non Alcoholic Punch for your New Year's get together

If you are having a get together you need some kind of non alcoholic beverage for people that don't drink or for the kids, this one is so delicious, a lot of the punch recipes have ice cream in it, this one doesn't. I promise if you make this, everyone will be asking you about it!!!!!
Here you go.....Raspberry Punch:
1 6oz can Frozen Lemonade
1 Cup Sugar
4 cups Water (Cold)
1 pkg Raspberry or Black Cherry Koolaid
One 2 Liter bottle 7up (Cold)
1 Package Raspberries or Frozen Raspberries
Put Lemonade in punch bowl, put in Koolaid, Sugar, Water, mix all ingredients VERY WELL, you want the sugar to be dissolved. Once mixed then add 2 Liter bottle of 7up, mix well, add Raspberries to float on top (it's better if they are frozen to keep the punch cold).
Enjoy, thanks to Angela who gave me this recipe year's ago!!!!


You can also make a batch of my Homemade Hot Buttered Rum Batter, keep it in the freezer and just pull it out when you need a warm pick me up!

A lot of the items are prime eligible or add on items so you can get free shipping.

Almost time for holiday baking...quick, easy test to see if your baking powder is still good.

If the baking powder in your cupboard hasn't been used since last holiday baking season you might want to test it out to see if it's still good. Baking powder can lose potency over time, there is a simple test you can do to see if yours is still good for baking.

Put 1/2 a teaspoon of the baking powder in a small bowl, pour in 1/4 cup hot tap water. The more bubbles the fresher the baking powder, you want lots of activity otherwise dough won't rise sufficiently. If you're not sure what lots of activity looks like, try this test the first time on a fresh container so you can see what good activity looks like.

I tested mine so I could take the picture, very few bubbles so I need to toss it and start fresh, I should have known, the last few times I made cookies they turned out strange looking and kind of sunken in.

Make your scrubbing sponges last longer = spend less, consume less!

Here's a couple tricks I use to make scrubbing sponges last longer, I usually buy the big pack when they are on coupon/sale at Costco, the pack literally ends up lasting a year or more. It always feels good to save money but I love it when I can consume less and throw less into the landfills, it's a win, win!

Cut them in half, I generally don't use the whole surface area when I'm cleaning, it's usually just a corner or an end to scrub something that is stuck on so I don't lose anything by cutting it in half.



Wash dirty sponges in the top rack of the dishwasher. If the scrubber part is still in good shape but it's starting to get a little sour, just put it in the dishwasher the next time your run it, comes out fresh and good as new.

The best part of Halloween and carving pumpkins is the Roasted Pumpkin Seeds.......here's how I make mine.

MMMMMMMM Salty, Crunchy Pumpkin Seeds.......is there anything better? It should be a crime to just throw away the pumpkin seeds when you carve your pumpkin, it does take a little time to sort through all the pumpkin guts but so worth it. The way I make my seeds is super simple, I'm sure there are lots of yummy things you can add to yours but I like mine just roasted and salted. Just a warning, you can get a stomach ache from eating too many, trust me I've done it.


First step is to separate the seeds from all the guts in the pumpkin, if you don't like touching slimy stuff, I'm not quite sure what to tell you, gloves maybe?

 
Wash your seeds really well, and spread on a cookie sheet, add enough water to cover all of them and sprinkle salt. You can roast them faster at a higher temperature but I leave mine in the oven overnight at a super low temperature, like 150 or less. In the morning all the water is evaporated and they are beautifully toasted and crunchy. Easy peasy lemon squeezy right?

My favorite go to Pumpkin Bread Recipe

I make this Pumpkin Bread every fall and continue making it through Christmas. I can't take credit for the recipe (it's from my Better Homes & Gardens cookbook) sshhhhh don't tell. The bread comes out so moist and delicious, everyone always raves. Enjoy!



Pumpkin Bread-Makes 2 Loaves-Preheat oven to 350
3 cups sugar
1 cup cooking oil
4 eggs
3 1/3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2/3 cup water
1 15 ounce can pumpkin
Grease bottom & sides of 2 9x5x3 inch loaf pans set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat sugar and oil on medium, add eggs and beat well, set aside.

In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon & nutmeg. Alternately add flour mixture and water to sugar mixture, beat on low after each addition just until combined. Beat in pumpkin, pour batter into pans.

Bake in 350 oven for 55-65 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean, (a toothpick is not long enough to reach the center so I use one of my favorite tricks Use uncooked spaghetti to check doneness. Cool in pans for 10 minutes, remove from pans and let them completely cool on wire racks.

Be ready for winter in the Pacific NW or the zombie apocalypse, either one you'll be glad you have it.

Every year when the power goes out, my Husband and I say to each other "we need a generator", we've only been saying that for the last 10 years. We lose power in the wintertime like some people change their socks........ALL THE TIME. I found an awesome deal on Generators at my favorite place to shop online...........woot.com.

If you've been looking for a deal, these are pretty rockin prices.
