Eggplant Parmesan I
This is an outstanding recipe. I doubled it though and still cooked it in a 13 x 9 pan for 40 minutes. Every flavor is distinct and absolutely compliment one another. I kept the measurements exact and would not add a thing. I used bottled classico marinara with burgundy.

Mexican Casserole
Really great base. I used Rotel Mexican Tomatoes with cilantro and lime instead of salsa. Also, I coated the chicken with one tbsp. of the oil then seasoned with salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, and a hint of red pepper. I also added 1/2 onion and garlic. Served it with sour cream and guac. Everyone loved it.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili
This is by far one of the best, if not the best, chili recipes ever. You taste all of the ingredients and the heat from the peppers follow but don't overwhelm. What is also really great about it is that it is easily scalable to meet the taste of your guests without dramatically affecting the overall taste. I lke it a little thicker so I drain one of the cans of tomatoes. ALLWAYS picked as the best at cookoffs.
