Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions
Excellent - brought this to a team meet dinner and it was a hit, esp with the adults! I deviated only slightly from the recipe - I placed a large can of diced tomatoes (seasoned with oregano, basil and garlic)in the slow cooker (on low). I browned 16 sausage links (8 hot/8 sweet) as I cut up one very large spanish onion, 1 green pepper, 1 red pepper & 1 yellow pepper. When the sausage was done I sliced them into chunks and put them in the slow cooker. I added a wee bit of garlic into the pan (after wiping out the sausage fat)and sauteed the garlic & onions, then I added the peppers and a few minutes after that added 1/3 cup of red wine. After most of the wine was cooked into the peppers, I added them to the crockpot and cooked on low for 2 hours. The dish smelled AMAZING and at the dinner later I received rave reviews - I can't wait to make again!

Beer Lime Grilled Chicken
GREAT RECIPE!! I've made this a couple of times now and it's a family favorite. I added one beer (Miller Light) doubled the amount of honey and lime juice (also added a couple of squirts of lemon juice), mixed together & set aside. After rinsing off the breasts & patted them down with a paper towel, I scored them and seasoned with adobo (puerto rican seasoning salt - but I think any seasoning salt would be fine), pepper, minced garlic (garlic powder is OK too). I didn't have cilantro either time, but that would also be a great addition. I poured the wet mixture over the chicken and let it sit for 30 minutes, turning the breasts over halfway. My husband grilled them on medium heat for about 9 minutes per side and both times the chicken came out very juicy. The marinade goes thru the entire chicken!! I've made many marinades before but this one is tops because it takes very little time, easy ingredients & perfect result!

Campfire Banana Splits
Really great treat for camfires, but pretty messy - that's part of the fun make sure you have plenty of wipes. For the reviewer with the issue with mosquitos - but a dryer sheet in your shirt pocket - mosquitos will stay away.
