I, too, use the recipe example...so I can't give much help with a different 
  For limiting reactants, I use the "sandwhich" example.  If it takes 2 pieces 
of bread, 2 piece of cheese and 3 pieces of meat to have a sandwhich, how many 
sandwiches can you make if you have...(and then give a bunch of examples).  Or 
you can use the brat example (brats come in packages of 5, hot dog buns in 
packages of 8...what's the limiting reactant).  Those two have cleared up 
limiting reactants for most any student I've explained them to...but that's 
assuming you've already worked through the "muck" of stoichioemtry to begin 
  Maybe somebody will have another idea.
