Kevin's Sea Shells
This is my favorite site because of all of the reviews and helpful suggestions. Some say you should only rate a recipe by following it to the letter. I disagree. I think any recipe can be rated on concept. I think that most people that love to cook look at all recipes in this light. " This sounds terrific. How can I modify it to my own family's preference?" Rated on concept, this recipe rates more than 5 stars. We used manicotta instead of shells for ease in stuffing pasta. Italian blend of shredded cheese instead of Swiss. Whole milk instead of cream. Sauteed the mushrooms with 2 tablespoons of finely minced garlic. Cut the shrimp in thirds. Seasoned them with Cajun seasoning and sauteed in a little butter for 2 minutes. Just enough to set the seasoning. Doubled the recipe with same amount of shrimp and used a like amount of imitation crab meat. (Wish we could have afforded the real thing. Maybe next time.) I think the leftovers reheated the next day may have been even better. Kevin, this was a fairly inexpensive meal fit for a king. Thank you.

Grant's Famous Midnight Grill BBQ Sauce
I've been using this for years with rave reviews. Great with anything, but a killer sauce on pulled pork and ribs. I use Masterpiece as a base. I substitute a smooth bourbon or rum for the scotch and omit the sugar.

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
