    I would assume you could use this recipe for almonds too.

    Recipe #1157

    This make excellent gifts as it is quick and easy but very tasty jelly.

    Recipe #3752

    I love this recipe because it is so easy to make and yet it always gets 'oohs' when people see the candies and 'aahs' when they taste them! I've gotten several z-mails asking about the candy coating. They are wafers that you melt to then dip candies into to coat them. They are usually sold in the candy section of craft or baking stores. I've seen them in the candy making section of Wal-Mart also. If you look at the ingredients photo on Recipe #104941, you'll see a photo of them. They are a different 'stiffness' than white chocolate chips but some reviews have successfully used those when they can't find the candy coating. Hope that helps!

    Recipe #4075

    This is a crumbly, sugary old fashion fudge....from the back of the Hershey's Cocoa can. Cook time is cooling time. If you are having trouble with it "setting up", you probably didn't cook it long enough. I have learned (the hard way!) to not trust my candy thermometer and to use to soft ball stage water test to make sure it is the right temperature. Even under cooking it by 2-3° will result in a soft, sticky mess. It still taste good though. :) Some good suggestions from reviewers: (I highly recommend reading through all the reviews before making this fudge!) - don't try to bring up temp too quickly - a large shallow saucepan works better than a deeper one

    Recipe #4573

    My mom got the recipe for these from my great aunt Grethel. She always makes them for Christmas and New Year's breakfast but they are good all year round.

    Recipe #92075

    I got this years ago from the lady in our church who canned it. I've never made it but I've eaten lots of it! It's the best salsa I have ever had. Especially good with lime tortilla chips or on taco salad (recipe #102234).

    Recipe #97428

    These are different from the other recipes on Zaar for seasoned oyster crackers because they don't include dill and they do include parmesan cheese. My mom always makes these at Christmas and they can be very addictive.

    Recipe #100227

    This is so easy and yet it is probably the best fudge I've ever had. I usually omit the pecans. My niece used this recipe, substituting 3-4 drops peppermint extract for the orange zest, and earned a blue ribbon at the county fair. Even my 12-16 year old 4H girls had no problems making it. Note: make sure you use fresh orange zest. Dried will make the fudge bitter. Also make sure you don't get any of the bitter white part of the rind when you are zesting your orange.

    Recipe #98783

    These are amazing! Better than York's because the chocolate is so much thicker. The yield is a guess as the recipe is from a friend who made them at Christmas and gave them as gifts. Fortunately, I was one of the recipients. This recipe has been updated to add more details after questions from reviewers. Cooking time is really drying time for the centers.

    Recipe #101027

    This makes an excellent gift. Make sure you make some for yourself too though because it really smells wonderful. Please note, you need to use whole cloves. Ground cloves are much stronger and will definitely overwhelm the other scents. If you aren't a fan of cloves, feel free to leave them out entirely. I do sometimes.

    Recipe #102950

    I've had this recipe for at least 8 years. It has always intriqued me but I never got around to trying it. Attended a meeting where we were supposed to share homemade gift ideas and decided to take this as one of mine. I'm so glad I did!! I loved it! It smells wonderful brewing and it made a lightly spiced coffee that was just so comforting. Make sure to use the blender to mix it to help keep it from clumping in the coffee pot and not letting the water run through properly. Response to reviewer's question about using dried orange zest: I suspect it would make the coffee bitter. I have only used fresh & have never received any complaints about bitterness even from people who take theirs black.

    Recipe #104662

    These are so easy to make that the kids can help me prepare them. It is just as easy to make a wide variety of these fancy morsels which allows you to set forth an impressive candy tray. Also makes an excellent gift. I prefer to work in small batches but the recipe can certainly be doubled or tripled.

    Recipe #104941

    These are kid loving bars! Well, even us adults can love them too.

    Recipe #71730

    An old Playcentre recipe...kids love it and keeps them entertained for hours. DONT eat it!...lol

    Recipe #9845

    This is a delicious orangey tea that just smells wonderful! I portion out some of the mix in little holiday ziploc baggies to give as gifts at the holidays. I am always surprised how many people have never had this tea. I have used this recipe for 8 years and have had many positive comments. A nice way to present this tea is to fill a zip-plastic baggie with some of the tea mix and place in a gift mug. This is an instant version of the real Russian tea, which is more like a hot fruity tea punch. Imagine a warm, sweet spiced apple cider, only with a citrusy/orange taste instead. This will not taste like a brewed black tea. The lemonade mix called for is one tiny packet, enough to make a 2 quart size pitcher (although you only use the mix dry). If you are subbing in sugar-free versions of any ingredients (which do work just fine) be aware that they will weigh less than anything made with sugar, so measuring by volume (such as US type cups and spoons) is key here if you are converting the recipe.

    Recipe #16632

    This delicious recipe came from my sis in law and turns out perfectly every time and is soo easy to make! I get many requests for this recipe.

    Recipe #84828

    I've been making these for years as they are easy to whip but have and excellent flavor. What colors you make them and how you decorate them depends on the occasion. Originally from a Philadelphia Cream Cheese booklet.

    Recipe #134636

    I first had chimichurri at an Argentinean Steak House in the Canary Wharf district of London. When I got home I had a friend help me figure out how to make it for myself. This is the recipe she came up with. Chimichurrri is traditionally a condiment for beef or other meat but it is also wonderful on bread or toast as an appetizer.

    Recipe #143533

    My grandmother used to make these every year and mail them to us. They freeze really well and ship beautifully. May favorite are the ones rolled in nuts.
