25 Nov 11 Betty’s Christmas Cherry-Pineapple Punch Recipe

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a delicious Christmas Cherry-Pineapple Punch. With her special ice cubes, you can having lovely, flavorful chilled drinks! Ingredients: (I am writing this recipe, assuming that no sugar-free products are used; therefore, sugar will be an ingredient. If you want an almost sugar-free drink, please follow the instructions on the video. Also, this recipe makes double the amount shown in the video.) 2 small packages cherry Jello 1 package cherry Kool-Aid 2 cups sugar 4 cups boiling water 6 cups water 2 large cans unsweetened pineapple juice 2 quarts (a 2-liter bottle) ginger ale In a large punch bowl, dissolve 2 small packages cherry Jello, 1 package cherry Kool-Aid, and 2 cups of sugar in 4 cups boiling water. (If you do not have a large punch bowl, you can use large bowls, Dutch ovens, etc., and make the punch by halves, if necessary.) Add 6 cups water, 2 large cans unsweetened pineapple juice, and 2 quarts (a 2-liter bottle) of ginger ale. Stir completely. Chill in the refrigerator. You may store it in pitchers in the refrigerator after it is mixed together. Note: This makes a large amount of punch. You may need to cut the recipe in half, if you have space constraints. I only made half of the recipe in the video. Even though this is a large amount of punch, it will go very quickly, because it tastes great, and it is so refreshing! The whole family will love it! — plus it is great for events, like receptions!

06 Sep 11 Betty’s Chili Cheese Fries Recipe

In this video, Betty demonstrates another simple and great-tasting party food, Chili Cheese Fries. With only three ingredients and a small amount of work, you can have a large dish of mouth-watering Chili Cheese Fries! Ingredients: 26 oz. package frozen French fries, thawed (1) to (2) 15-oz. cans chili (You may use chili with beans or chili with no beans.) 1 to 2 cups finely shredded Cheddar cheese 1-inch of peanut oil for frying French fries Pour about 1 inch of peanut oil in a heavy pot. Cook French fries in oil, and drain on paper toweling. (You may have to do this in stages to ge them all fried, depending on the size of your pot.) After draining thoroughly, place the hot French fries in a large (13-inch bt 9-inch by 2-inch) Pyrex (or similar) dish. Meanwhile, have your 1 to 2 cans of chili heating in a separate pot, until it is piping hot. Drizzle the hot chili over the hot French fries. Next, sprinkle 1 to 2 cups of shredded sharp Cheddar cheese over the top. Bake in a 400-degee oven for 2 minutes, and then turn oven to broil and broil for 2 additional minutes. Remove from oven, and serve immediately. Depending on the amount of chili used, you may be able to pick these up and eat them with your fingers. Otherwise, place a serving on a serving plate, and use a fork. Delish! And great for parties, such as your rapidly approaching Super Bowl Party!!! Enjoy! –Betty :)
