Sweetie Staff Recipes

From the kitchen of Sweetie-licious...

There is nothing more comforting than an old, worn and stained recipe card. You can truly feel the baked love through the faded handwriting of mothers long ago. 

Pomegranate Blue Cheese Salad

  • 4 medium-size ripe avocados, peeled, sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 4 medium-size pink grapefruit, peeled, sectioned
  • Bibb lettuce
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Blue cheese crumbles
  • 1/3 C. red onion, thinly sliced 

Sprinkle avocado slices with salt, pepper, and lime juice, toss well. Arrange avocado and grapefruit slices on lettuce leaves. Cover and chill for 2-3 hours. When ready to serve, add pomegranate seeds, blue cheese and onion slices. Serve with a good quality vinaigrette



Christmas Punch

This is festive and delicious, and so beautiful with the ice ring! Everyone loves it!


  • 1 liter Canada Dry Cranberry soda pop - chilled
  • 1 liter Squirt or grapefruit soda pop - chilled
  • 1/2 C. orange juice 

Ice ring
Arrange fresh cranberries and orange and lemon slices evenly around a ring mold. Pour Squirt into the mold. Freeze completely before adding to the punch.

Pour all punch ingredients (including remaining Squirt) into a punch bowl. Add the ice ring. For “spirited” punch - add a bottle of your favorite champagne!
