Why is it that even the best recipes don't turn out when I have company? I stumbled on a great marinade for chicken in an old Taste of Home magazine (olive oil, lime juice, garlic, spices) that made the most tender, best tasting chicken on the grill. I only had 2 hours, vs 8, to marinate the chicken for dinner tonight, but it turned out dry and without the flavor it had the first time around. I suppose I could blame the failure on my hubby's grilling skills..but I think the fault lies in my lack of preparation. :-) At least I made up for it with some VERY yummy brownies. Quick tip from my mom-in-law--frost brownies with chocolate cake frosting. YUM!
