Grilled Chicken Spiedies
First, I'd like to say that I live in the area that this recipe comes from & they are a staple food at most restaurants & family bbq's. Usually, I just buy a jar of Lupo's or Salamida Spiedi sauce, but wanted to serve it at a party for 30 & was trying to keep costs down, so decided to make my own. The recipe handed down by my family is very close to this one, so I melded the 2 recipes together & got nonstop compliments from my guests, who are all natives & KNOW their spiedies. My tips: Any type of meat will do, but works its magic best with tough and fatty cuts - the tougher the cut, the longer you should marinade (2-14 days optimal, shaking it once/day- don't worry, it will keep!). Use as many fresh ingredients as possible, but it will still work if you cannot. The ratio of vinegar should be equal to the fresh-squeezed lemon juice- 1/4 c each. White wine vinegar is good, but red or plain old white will do. 1/3 c. Olive (or any veg) oil. I use 4 cloves and 1 t. garlic powder, add 1 T. dry parsley, 1 T. dry basil and 1 t. of dry oregano. Add the salt to the marinade instead of waiting until its on the grill, which, if possible, should be a wood fire, as it adds so much depth to the flavor. I hate skewering & have a grilling pan with drip holes in it that works better. The hoagie rolls are nice, but most families use a nice, soft loaf of crusty Italian bread & skip toasting it. A delicious addition is cooked mushrooms, peppers, onions with melted cheese.

Beef and Spinach Curry
Made this just as written, except I used stew beef and no peppers because I didn't have any and I was trying to make it more kid-friendly. This was really good, although quite mild without the peppers (perfectly since the kids ate it). When I make this again, which I certainly WILL make again, I will wait to add the spinach until I've simmered the meat to the perfect tenderness -the stew meat turned out a little chewy when only simmered for 20 mins. Thanks for my first, homemade curry dish! It was a success!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs
If you have the opportunity to cook these over a cherry or apple-wood open fire -DO IT! I used my own ranch "packet" recipe, followed the directions, and cooked over an open fire and WOW! Very good.
