Witch’s Brew Punch Recipe

Witch’s Brew Punch Recipe Ingredients:
 2 packages lime Jell-O
 Ice (if needed)
 Lime Kool-Aid or purchase 1 Gallon Green Punch (any brand)
 Cauldron or Punch Bowl
 Ladle

Directions: The night before, using the lime Kool-Aid prepare ice cubes. You’ll need to use the flavored ice cubes as this particular witch’s brew does not do well watered down with plain water ice cubes. It will water it down too much.

In enough time for the Jell-O to set before serving, prepare both packages of lime Jell-O. Place in fridge to set. Make one gallon of Green Punch Kool-Aid or you can purchase a gallon of any brand green punch. Chill.

When ready to serve, using a fork, mash up the set Jell-O into globs. Pour the punch into punch bowl or cauldron. Add Jell-O globs and Kool-Aid ice cubes.

Tips for serving: Because this is a Jell-O punch, do not use a pitcher to serve. The Jell-O will try and sit on the bottom. Make certain you stir the punch well and ladle it into your guests’ cups.

Pumpkin Roll Cake Recipe

Pumpkin Roll Recipe You will need to preheat your oven to 375 degrees and get your pan ready. Using a 15 x 10 inch pan (Texas sheet pan is what I call it) spray it with butter spray. You can use regular but I prefer the butter spray. I lightly flour this as well.
Pumpkin Roll Ingredients:  3/4 c. flour  1/2 t. baking powder  1/2 t. baking soda  3/4 t. cinnamon  1/4 t. allspice  1/4 t. salt  3 large eggs  1 c. sugar  1/2 t. vanilla   2/3 c. pumpkin puree Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice and salt into a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
Beat your eggs and sugar together on high until fluffy (about 5 minutes). You will know when it is enough; the mixture is thick and forms a ribbon pattern off your beaters when turned off and lifted slowly out of the bowl. Next, beat in the vanilla extract and pumpkin. Slowly add in sifted flour mixture you set aside earlier. Gently mix thoroughly. Pour batter into pan, evenly spreading the batter.
Bake for 13 - 15 …
