Grilled Korean-Style Beef Short Ribs
I liked this as it is. But I believe the next time I make it, I am going to substitute the Asian pear for pineapple. The main reason is the pineapple has more acidity and will tenderize the meat a bit better than the Asian pear. All in all a very good recipe. I spent 2 years in Korea and this dish brought me back.

Grilled Eggplant, Tomato and Goat Cheese
I could not find goat cheese at my local market, so I substituted Mexican melting cheese with awesome results. Also I did not add the top slice of eggplant and bbqed the eggplant before adding the tomato and cheese. My vegetarian friends loved this recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
Awsome recipe!!! Of course I had to tweak it.I added 2 cups of ham and since I discovered I had no flour I used a 50\50 mix of wheat flour and Jiffy baking mix.I also subed low sodium chicken stock for the water and bullion. The fiance loved it!
