I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Peach Slushi (Julie Lloyd)

3 c water
2 c sugar
½ c lemon juice or juice of 3 lemons
20 oz can crushed pineapple
3 c mashed peaches (~7 peaches)
Sprite or 7-Up (¼-½ c per serving)

Bring water and sugar to a boil to dissolve the sugar. Pour lemon juice, pineapple and peaches into a large blender.* Add sugar syrup. Blend well. Pour into quart Ziploc bags (~3-4 c per bag). Freeze. Bring out of freezer about an hour before the meal to soften it (don’t want it rock-hard). Mash with a potato masher or re-blend. Add Sprite or 7-Up. Stir.

*The original recipe stirred the lemon, pineapple and peaches into the sugar syrup. Frozen portions were divided into bowls, Sprite poured on top, and served with a spoon. My family liked the blended version better.
