Grilled Marinated Shrimp
I don't eat shrimp...this review comes from everyone else in our house that does. Phenomenal!! Nothing but rave reviews! We only had time to marinate them for a little over an hour but they were reported as "to die for" from my son. We are going to try this again with shrimp and chicken and serve on top of linguine and a cream sauce.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
This is down-home cooking at it's best. It is an excellent base for creative expansion (bacon, cheese, etc) but we love it just as it is written. We usually make a double batch so it will last longer. Enjoy it with a bit of cheddar, bacon and chives on top with a crust of french bread.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men
After reading a lot of the reviews I decided to make this exactly as the recipe directs. I actually used blackstrap molasses as it was all that I had on hand...despite the author's warning. After mixing the dough together I tasted it and almost threw the entire batch in the trash. The blackstrap was very strong, I could taste the iron in it, and it lacked sweetness. I decided to refrigerate it anyway so the kids could decorate cookies that night but didn't think anyone would eat them. Boy was I wrong! I let them roll out the dough between sheets of parchment paper and we didn't have any problems with sticking. They cut out their cookies and we baked them for almost ten minutes. The smell was heavenly and they tasted like gingerbread snap cookies. We decorated them with icing made from a bit of butter, lots of confectioners sugar, milk and a bit of vanilla extract. Even the kids loved these cookies. They weren't soft, maybe if I backed them less they would have been softer.
