Scott's Savory BBQ Sauce
I needed a sauce to please everyone, and this sounded like just the perfect one. I had to make some adjustments to it, but it's REALLY good! I thought the combination of vinegar, ketchup and lemon juice sounded a little too tangy for me, even though I consider myself addicted to anything with vinegar, so I used white vinegar instead of cider vinegar, I used a can of condensed tomato soup instead of the ketchup and eliminated the lemon juice all together. After mixing it all up, I still found it a bit too tangy for my liking so I added 3 tablespoons of molasses. After adding the molasses, I found it just right -- it was so good, in fact, that my 6-year old asked for a bowl of it to dip her veggies in! It's a keeper.

Ham Loaf I
Just like my grandmother used to make. I probably haven't had ham loaf for 20 years or more. What a wonderful treat. Even my picky eater loved it!

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze
Holy Moly! We LOVED this recipe. I took suggestions from others and added a teaspoon of garlic, two tablespoons of brown sugar, doubled the vinegar and cooked the glaze separately. It was just out of this world yummy! I do have to agree with another reviewer that it does stink up the entire house while cooking, so beware. However, it's worth the odor. Even my teen boys, who had their noses stuffed in their shirts while the glaze was simmering, loved it. This one's a keeper. I broiled my meat and served it with caramelized Brussels sprouts (also from this site) Great meal and surprisingly easy.
