  1. BK this was perfect for me during a very busy time of our lives with my DD's wedding! I was able to make it ahead quickly and serve it with breakfast the day after the wedding! IOh I made the Sunrise Cooler!! It was enjoyed by everyone! Thanks for helping me to look good! :) Made for the Gimme 5 Tag Game. :D
  2. Very refreshing, very easy, & a 3-in-1 to boot!!! Have already made the first one for my extended PAC family of kids [Then for some reason or other they didn't come around ~ probably 'cause I forgot to sent out the call to congregate, thus interrupting their play-time!] Anyway, this is a great recipe to have on hand for ANY company of ANY age! Thanks for sharing!
  3. I love recipes with choices! I made the Orangead with ginger ale and it was very refreshing and then I made the Sunrise Cooler with the frozen strawberries, OJ, a little sugar and ice blended in my blender then I stirred some sparkling water into it...very nice and refreshing but will be enjoyed much more in the warm summer months. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
  4. Wow! The orangead is so refreshing! I know it says for the kids but I think adults will be equally satisfied. I used diet lemon-lime soda and you could not tell it was diet. Thank you so much BK.

I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
