Before you hand out the drinks, save a little soda to make these burgers. Cola helps soften the texture and kick up the flavor. Used in the meat mixture and brushed on during cooking, it takes this football favorite to another level. —Emily Nelson, Packers Women's Association, Green Bay, Wisconsin
Whether you're grilling a broiler chicken or chicken breasts, consider this lip-smacking glaze. There are only four ingredients in the honey-mustard sauce, so you can whip it up in minutes.—Michael Everidge, Morristown, Tennessee
The marinade makes a savory statement in this all-time-favorite chicken recipe that I served at our son's pirate-theme birthday party. It smelled so good on the grill that guests could hardly wait to try a piece!
A delicate marinade flavors these pork chops with the fragrant seasonings of India and tenderizes the meat at the same time. Writes Linda Lacek of Winter Park, Florida. "The colorful relish would be delicious alongside any grilled entree. It's also a tasty substitute for butter or baked potatoes!"
This started out as a mild sauce that I decided to "spice up". You'll find it's easy to adjust the seasonings to suit your family's taste. I also like to use the sauce on boneless skinless chicken breasts.

This colorful dish is a favorite of mine for entertaining. I marinate the chicken and cup up the peppers the night before. Then the next day, I just assemble the kabobs and grill. —Cindy Novak, Antioch, California
Pork tenderloin gets gussied up with a sweet honey, Dijon mustard and sesame seed marinade in this easy-to-fix low-fat entree. "This is our family's favorite way to fix pork during grilling season," says Barbara Blake from her home in West Brattleboro, Vermont.
"This is my family's favorite treatment for pork," says Donna Godfrey from Cumming, Georgia. "The slices of tenderloin get a flavorful zip from a Mexican-inspired marinade. I often fix the skewers for company, because much of the prep work can be done ahead of time."
