Caribbean Health Drink
Good stuff. Didn't have any pineapples, so I added 1/2 C of OJ, as well as 6 oz of plain yogurt. I liked it enough and so did my 2 yo. I great way to get him to get the benefits of that's good enough for me!

Groovy Green Smoothie
Was looking for a way to get more vegetables in my 2 yo. Success!!! He even asked for MORE! Based on other reviews I pre-chopped the fresh spinach, so my blender would not have to work so hard. I also only used a cup of spinach (since it was the first attempt), used apple sauce instead of apples, and used red grapes for sweetness. I hid placing the spinach in the blender, as well as in a covered cup with a straw. He just wanted "more shake!" I will definitely make again.

Beer Can Chicken
This chicken was moist for sure. I followed many of the tips, but I have to say that we found the flavor lacking. I even injected some seasoned (S&P) chicken broth into it and added onion powder, garlic powder, dried parsley, and oregano; along with adding wood chips! Perhaps the chicken would have done better if I put the spice rub under the skin. I might also try letting the chicken soak 8+ hrs in some seasoned salt water to let it permeate the meat better. Finally, be careful about the size of your chicken. My 5.5 lb bird was pushing up the top of my Weber grill.
