Mexican Strawberry Water (Agua de Fresa)
Oh my, this recipe is a must try! I've tried making fruit water without much success and clearly letting it sit long enough is the key. What a refreshing treat on a hot summer day and when strawberries are in season. I reduced the sugar to 1/2c, as others mentioned and it was sweet enough for our taste. I was getting impatient at how long it took to strain so I just poured the remaining 7 cups water through the strainer to get every last strawberry flavoured morsel. There was only a small spoonful of seeds left, so I definitely recommend straining it to get that wonderful smooth taste.

Chili I
This has definitely become my family's #! favourite chili recipe over the years! I love the perfect combination of the cocoa, coffee and beer and mixture of spices. The ingredients blend together in such a way that the unique combination gets wild raves from everyone I've ever served it to! The only thing I do differently is chop the beef sirloin into small cubes and brown it first, then add the ground beef, drain any grease and then add the onions garlic and after it's browned. This recipe makes a large quantity and freezes very well - either in plastic freezer bags, or sometimes I also add both rice and corn as well (which accompanies this chili recipe to a T) in the same container for a fully prepared freezer meal to save for later.

Rib Eye Steaks with a Soy and Ginger Marinade
I followed the recipe exactly, but I found the steak somewhat bland tasting. I think it was because of 1/2 cup of beer is too much and offset the flavour of all the other ingredients.
