Made this yesterday for a casual dinner party... this easy recipe elevated it a few levels up! Everyone loved it and I actually hid a piece in the kitchen for my dinner tonight.

I made this for a BBQ and it was really great. Loved that there was no mayo in it so we could leave it out a little longer. Ended up not cooking the corn and everything tasted so fresh. "

This ended up being a perfect grilled chicken recipe... with a few additions. I made this for a BBQ and as I was making the marinade I felt that it needed a few more "layers" to it. I added a bit of honey, grainy Dijon mustard and smoked paprika. Not a lot of each but it definitely needed it. Everyone raved about the recipe.

WOW! this was a pretty easy recipe and was well worth the minimal effort needed. My husband said that these were the best pancakes ever! I followed recipe but did add a bit of cinnamon along with the nutmeg. Again I will say WOW!
one note- the batter is a bit thicker than we are used to so don't be put off - the pancakes were incredibly...

Although I did make a few changes to fit my husbands palate - went light on the lemon and added a splash of red wine that I already had opened. I used 8 skinless boneless but think next time I will use the skin on bone in.
We really enjoyed it! I did find that it was a lot of potatoes but my husband is happy for the leftovers at lunch tomorrow....

I make a great brisket but this one is the best I have ever made. It was definitely a lot more prep time - closer to 45 minutes - but worth every second. My husband, the ultimate brisket critic, absolutely loved it. "

this recipe converted the non brussels sprouts eaters at Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone loved them, even my mother in law. Easy to make - I actually got everything cut and prepped in the AM and then just had to make them in the pan. Instead of the dash of sugar, I added a splash of real maple syrup... unbelievably delish!!""
