Mexican chili?
Incredible, I've learned something new!
Chicken parmesan
Does anyone have a good pumpkin pie recipe? Sometimes homemade pies have an awful brown blah color, looking for a pretty one as well as tasty.
I'm with @chefbuba you're using the wrong cut of meat.  I saw a show where Lidia Bastianich made this and I think this is what you're looking for.  http://www.food.com/recipe/italian-beef-sandwich-476780   Chuck needs to be braised slowly on low heat for a long time and then it falls apart.

I'm amazed too but I shouldn't be. Hubby has never liked vegetables until just recently. I've always served them and forced a few on his plate which he ate dutifully but indifferently. He's recently taken a serious interest in his health and has suddenly awoken to the true beauty of vegetables. It makes dinner time so much more pleasant for me.And then there are the people who only eat vegetables one way. It's kinda sad. I can't imagine having a dinner party where none of...
