My cooking tragedies
Once, before I was married, I decided to cook steak, baked potatoes and salad for my future husband. I started the potatoes at the same time he started the steaks on the grill. Needless to say, we had the potatoes for dessert! Another time, after we were married I managed to start a fire in my oven while making Texas sheet cake.

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)
I have just tried this recipe and it did not work for me! Imagine my surprise this morning when I went to dye my Easter eggs after cooking them using this method yesterday and realized that the eggs were only SOFT BOILED AND RUNNY!

Out of this World Turkey Brine
I tried this recipe last year and we all decided the turkey was the best turkey we had ever eaten. Moistm and surprisingly not salty. After brining, we roasted the turkey on the grill according to another recipe found on this site. I will never cook another turkey in the house. Although we missed the aroma of a cooking turkey, nothing beats a turkey cooked on the grill.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Even my brussel sprout hating husband loved this recipe! I've put the sprouts in a foil packet and then cook them on our grill, turning occasionally. I've also started with frozen brussel sprouts, too, just cooking them longer, depending on what else is cooking on the grill.
