Ok, If I had been told what was in this before I actually tried it, I probably wouldn’t have let it near my innards.  However, I was only told the name and then assured it had no seafood in it, so I tried it.  It is AMAZING!  I’m not necessarily a big dip/spread person…dont really have much cause for them, but this is easily the best dip/spread I think I have ever eaten!   So before you turn your nose up to it, give it a try.  It is AWESOME.

1-14oz can of Sour Kraut

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup saltine crackers crushed

1 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup chopped ham (or turkey)

1 tablespoon diced onion

1 1/2 cup sour cream

Mix well.

Chill for 2 hours.

Serve with crackers.

This is a recipe from when I was little that I absolutely LOVE.

2 cups orange-flavored drink mix (e.g. Tang)

1/4 cup instant tea powder

3/4 cup lemon-flavored instant tea powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cloves

In a large bowl, combine orange drink mix, sugar, tea powder, cinnamon and cloves. Mix well and store in an airtight container.

To serve, put 3 teaspoons of mix in a mug. Stir in 1 cup boiling water. Adjust to taste.

(I have also just used lemon flavored tea only (not splitting the plain tea with the lemon flavored and it’s basically the same.)

I have been asked and asked and asked for this recipe and have finally decided to send it out into the world.  Hope you enjoy it. 🙂

2 cups Sour Apple Martini Mixer

4 blocks Cream Cheese

3 Eggs

½ cup Sour Cream

3 Teaspoons Flour

½ cup sugar


2 cups ground Graham Cracker crumbs

3 tablespoons butter


Caramel Ice Cream topping


Mix butter and crumbs until it holds together. Shape into spring form pan or pie pan. If using springform, only bring crust ½ way up the pan.


Boil 2 cups of Sour Apple until condensed to ½ cup stirring constantly (appx 30 minutes.) Do not over-boil, as it will harden.

Mix all ingredients including condensed sour apple sauce until well combined.

Pour into pie/cake pan.

Bake on 350 for 45-65 minutes with a pan of water under the cheesecake.

Remove cheesecake from oven when the center of the cake jiggles like well set pudding.

Cover cheesecake with caramel ice cream topping.

This recipe makes one full sized cheesecake or two pie sized cheesecakes.

This can be used for a variety of cheesecakes.  Simply remove the Sour Apple mix for a plain, basic cheesecake.  Substitute 1/4 can pumpkin pie MIX (not plain pumpkin) for a pumpkin cheesecake.  I use a lot of martini mixers for various flavors, many of which have to be boiled and condensed.  Pina colada mixers usually do not have to be condensed though.

When using flavorings, basically flavor to your tastes.  The above amounts are to my tastes and I tend to like things rather full of flavor.
