This punch is always great for Bridal and Baby showers! You just can't get enough! You may use different flavors such as lemon lime, orange, strawberry or even a combo of all of them. You can also substitute the soda for a pitcher of powdered drink mix and 2 liters of ginger ale.

For my wedding shower everyone brought a few recipes and this is one of my favorites. It is refreshing and pretty. This salad also travels well, just save the dressing and use it just before serving.

This is a sponge cake that it is perfect for making petits fours. Dense yellow cake that can stand up to the process of being cut into small pieces, and iced individually. Decorate each little cake with a whole nut, some candied fruit, tiny candies, sprinkles or coconut.

Scallops sauteed in butter and garlic will melt in your mouth. Lemon juice gives it a nice kick.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Rating: 4.44 stars

Whenever you make these cookies for someone, be sure to bring along several copies of the recipe! You will be asked for it, I promise! NOTE: I make icing with confectioners' sugar and milk. I make it fairly thin, as I 'paint' the icing on the cookies with a pastry brush. Thin enough to spread easily but not so thin that it just makes your cookies wet and runs off.

Simple Cake Pops

Everyone loves cake pops! They are simple to make, and you can create anything for any occasion. They are also nice small bites of dessert instead of large slices of cake or pie. Can be made up in partial batches and the remaining ingredients stored for a few weeks.
