Grandpa's Terriyaki Marinade

1/2 cup water or pineapple juice (pineapple juice is the obviously going to be a lot tastier!)
1/2 soy sauce
2-3 tbls. ketchup
2 tbl. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. ginger

Mix all together in sauce pan until it almost boils. Place your meat in a bag along along with the sauce and let marinade as long as possilble (over night or several hours). Fire up the grill and grill over indirect heat for about 15 minutes on each side for chicken. After eating, you'll feel the comforts of home and love brimming in your soul- this is not only comfort food, but down right "high" in the Yumm-o factor.

Casey's Chicken Wraps

Casey came up with this and I think it's brilliant. Randy was hesitant the first time we had it for dinner, but was pleasantly surprised.

Frozen chicken nuggets- cooked to your liking (or you can use left-over frilled chicken)
Flour tortillas (We like homemade or the Costco, cook yourself tortillas
Shredded cheddar cheese
Ranch dressing

Roll it all the flour tortilla and there you go! With the chicken nuggets, it's easy enough my kids can do it. And if you stuff it full enough, it's a great meal, even for dad!

Chocolate Oat Squares

I found this on Becky Higgin's website (she has a cooking section). They were devoured at the baptism I took them to.

1 c. plus 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened, divided
2 c. packed brown sugar
2 eggs
4 tsp. vanilla extract, divided
3 c. quick-cooking aots
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt, divided
1 tsp. baking soda
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
2 c. (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips
1 c. chopped walnuts

In a mixing bowl, cream 1 c. butter and brown sugar. Beat in eggs and 2 tsp. vanilla. Combine the oats, flour, 1 teaspoon salt and baking soda in a separate bowl; stir into creamed mixture. Press 2/3 of oat mixture into a greased 9" x 13" baking stone (or pan). It's also fine in an 8" x 8" pan. You'll just have taller squares. In a saucepan combine milk, chocolate chips and remaining butter and salt. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in walnuts and remaining vanilla. Spread over the crust. Sprinkle with remaining oat mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool. Cut into squares. Yield: 4 dozen.

Easy Cheesecake

1 graham cracker crust
1 box (8 oz.) cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tub cool whip

Mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth, then add cool whip and whip again until smooth. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Top with fresh berries. Mmmmmm! I've used fresh strawberries sliced and whole blackberries. It is so good that I don't even put sugar on the berries.

I can't post things (I am a kid) but this is a good desert/breakfast. I made it up myself.

(sorry I am not doing real measurements)

1 Strawberry Eggo waffle

a spoonful of whip cream

a handful of chocolate chips

Take the strawberry waffle and heat it for about 35 seconds in the microwave. Then put the chocolate chips on and the spoonful of whip cream.
