Italian food is a definite. And Mexican food comes in second. Than kids food.

Southern-Style Barbecue Sauce
By itself, not so good. The vinegar overpowered everything else. To fix that, all I did was add more hot sauce and ketchup. It's super thin so you can always cook it down to thicken it up.

All the times I've made them they have been good. If they turn out rubbery, your only suppose to flip once, if they turn out greasy, add less butter or whatever you use to make it not stick. And I have even made it without the oil and it turned out well. So try it with or without the oil. At the same time you need to add a little more flour to make them thicker.

15-Minute Dinner Nachos Supreme
Me and my husband love this meal. He keeps asking for it whenever we go by ground beef. I recommend this dish to any family that wants a meal that makes families want to eat together.
