punch bowl
punch ~~~ I used 1 gallon and a half to fill my punch bowl
frozen berries (your choice) I chose frozen raspberries, blueberries and blackberries(1 bag of each)

put the punch in the bowl and add one package of each type of frozen berries 
add ice

this punch will receive RAVE reviews and is out of the ordinary




3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 tsp coarse salt
1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Sanding sugar for sprinkling

  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Put sugars and zest in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed 30 seconds. Add butter; mix until pale and fluffy, about 1 minute. Mix in eggs one at a time, and then the lemon juice. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture.
  3. Using a 2 inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheets, spacing 3 inches apart. Flatten cookies slightly; sprinkle with sanding sugar. Lightly brush with a wet pastry brush; sprinkle more sanding sugar.
  4. Bake cookies until golden, about 15 minutes rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer cookies to wire racks; let cool completely. Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Key Lime Cake

I found this recipe @ the Lettered Cottage click here to give her a visit: HERE

For the Cakes ~
Step 1: Prepare three round 9″ pans by lining the bottoms of each with 9″ circles of wax paper.
Step 2: Grease the wax paper with Pam and then sprinkle with flour.
Step 3: Mix the cake mix, lime jello, oil, eggs, orange juice and water together for 2 to 3 minutes at medium speed.
Step 4: Pour an equal amount of the batter into each of the three lined cake pans.
Step 5: Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
For The Glaze ~
Step 6: While the cakes are baking, knead two key limes against a hard surface to loosen the juice inside of them.
Step 7: Cut each of the key limes in half.
Step 8: Squeeze 1/4 cup of fresh key lime juice into a small bowl.
Step 9: Pour 1/4 cup of bottled lime juice into the bowl of fresh lime juice.
Step 10: Mix in 4 tbsp. of confectioners sugar.
When the cakes come of out the oven, and while they’re still warm, use a spoon to drizzle the glaze mixture onto the entire surface of each of them.
Step 11: Mix the margarine and cream cheese together.
Step 12: Mix in the remainder of the box of confectioners sugar.
Step 13: Add the vanilla, and mix until it’s smooth.
Step 14: Remove the first cake from its pan, discard the wax paper on the bottom of it, and spread a layer of icing on the top of it.
Step 15: Remove and stack the second (wax paperless) cake on top of the first one, and spread a layer of icing on the top of it.
Step 16: Remove and stack the third (wax paperless) cake on top of the second one, and spread a layer of icing on the top of it. Use the remaining icing to cover the sides of the cake.
Place the cake in the refrigerator to keep the icing firm.
Optional Refrigeration Instructions: Immediately cut and serve up several large pieces to your famished family.


I want to put in a little PS here . . . I am not responsible for over indulgence of the above yummies!
