Hello Patti,

See below.


Raspberry Bounce

1-quart raspberries (may be frozen)
2 cups white granulated sugar
1 fifth vodka (inexpensive kinds work best)
1 gallon wide mouth jar

Wash fruit and remove stems. Place fruit in jar, breaking the skin of the 
fruit as you do. Add sugar by pouring directly over fruit. Pour vodka into 
the jar. Do not stir. Tightly cap jar. Set in a cook dark place for about 
2 months. Shake the jar a couple times a month to redistribute the sugar 
and juices. Strain liqueur off the fruit into a bowl. Discard fruit. Filter 
through a 
coffee filter and pour into bottle.  

Try this with other fruits like cranberries, cherries, plums, or peaches

Dawn adds this :

Hi Uncle Phaed,

I was just browsing through your archives and found a recipe for Australian scones. 
I am an American that moved to AUS 12 years ago.  The liquid in the recipe is actually 
7-Up or Sprite, that what they call lemonade.  They donít commonly (rarely) have or 
serve the lemonade that Americans drink.  This recipe is very easy and the results are 
tasty,  best served with jam and unsweetened whipped cream.   I donít know how they 
would taste with the Ďotherí lemonade though.  Just thought this might help your readers.

Love the site Ė only 5 more years of archives to read.

Hi Julie,

The below recipe is the only one that I can find.

Chi Chi's tortilla chips may have been made by Casa de Oro. It's difficult to find Casa de Oro chips, because they mostly make chips that are sold under their customers' names instead of their own.


Chi Chi's Chili Con Queso copycat

1 pound Velveeta
1 4 ounces can chiles
4 ounces chopped pimentos
Tabasco sauce, to taste
half and half- equal amt. to melted cheese

Take a pound of Velveeta and melt it until it becomes stirrable. You can 
use a microwave for this. Combine an equal amount of half and half and mix
 thoroughly. Add one 4 oz can of chilis and an equal amount of pimientos. 
 Microwave again until the mixture is hot. Iy you like a little more spice,
 add a dash or three of Tabasco at this point. Pour into small bowls and 
 cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator overnight. Do not skip 
this step. Take a bowl out and place into microwave, heat, stir and eat.
