Marinated Greek Chicken Kabobs

Rating: 4.41 stars
307

This is a chicken kabob recipe that I would love to share! Plan to marinate for 3 hours. Serve with Greek rice!

Steve's Bodacious Barbecue Ribs

Rating: 4.56 stars
32

These make real mouth-watering 'Pig-cicles'! They take a while to cook, and when you eat them, you'll have pork fat smeared from ear to ear! Mmm! Mmm! I like to smoke with hickory wood, but any of your favorite will suffice.

Best Hamburger Ever

Rating: 4.2 stars
766

These burgers are the best on the grill in the summertime. Jam-packed with all kinds of stuff, and no tasteless bread crumbs!

Beaumont Ranch Potato Salad

Rating: 4.59 stars
78

I have kept this recipe a ranch secret, but I have decided to share it. This is my variation of a French classic garlic potato salad. It is different than the dish that inspired it, but very good and easy as well.

Awesome Pasta Salad

Rating: 4.63 stars
694

This is the best pasta salad I've ever eaten, and people request it frequently. It's a very easy, light-tasting side dish for a picnic or dinner.

Unfurl the red, white, and blue with this beautiful, easy, and patriotic flag cake perfect for the 4th of July, Memorial Day, or any favorite occasion. Assemble and frost the pretty cake and wait for the oohs and ahhs!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Rating: 4.52 stars
3026

Slow cooked, Texas-style pulled pork that is served on a buttered and toasted roll. My family's favorite.

This is a salad that everyone seems to love. I always get lots of compliments on this recipe and it is just a pleasing taste that seems to suit everyone.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Rating: 4.7 stars

I've been experimenting with cobbler for some time and this recipe is the final result. Loved by all. Use fresh Georgia peaches, of course!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Rating: 4.58 stars
2605

This is a simple and delicious recipe. After making them the first time my husband said 'no more' to beef burgers. These are really good - any cooking method may be used, and they freeze very well. The recipe can also be used for meatballs or meat loaves.

Boston Baked Beans

Rating: 4.58 stars
1357

A wonderful old-fashioned baked bean flavor. This recipe has served by family for 29 years and originally came from my mother-in-law. It tastes great served with fresh cornbread or biscuits and honey. Although you need to allow time for soaking and simmering the beans, this recipe is still quite easy.
