Turkey Burgers w/Bacon Jam

The gauntlet has been thrown down for the week…in the struggle of what to make for meals for the week, a challenge was thrown down to create a different burger every other night…can I do it? Can I make up my own burgers? Do I have enough ideas right now? To be clear, the challenge…

Sriracha Lime Chopped Chicken Salad

There is something truly fun about living in the midwest – when the seasons start to change, the weather releases the last bit of over night frost and SUMMER has arrived! Grilling becomes second nature during these months. I’m often envious of those who have outdoor kitchens in warm climates who can grill and entertain…

Grilled Cod with Citrus Browned Butter Sauce

This recipe is more about the sauce than the cod.  There isn’t anything special to say about the seasoning on the cod, but the brush of canola oil and sprinkling of salt and pepper.   The winner of this is the sauce.   This citrus browned butter sauce is fantastic with the richness of the…

Grilled Stuffed Brussel Sprouts

Hint here – this recipe is not going to be much different than the Stuffed Mushrooms recipe.  Making this the same night gave me the same base stuffing for the ingredients, with very few adaptations. One thing I have realized lately is that I would post a recipe almost every week on a Brussel Sprout…

Grilled Asparagus

Are you ever looking for a super simple side dish while the burgers or chicken are grilling?  Look no further with this four ingredients + tin foil  + grill = easy and delicious! My trick with the tin foil is to double layer both top and bottom portions creating a half inch lip around all…

Grilled Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

I don’t know how many times I will say this throughout the life of this blog, but I LOVE GRILLING SEASON!!!   It seems like every year I get really excited to grill and share – as evidenced by the Lamb Burgers, Vietnamese Shrimp Pops, Grilled Romaine Salad, Pineapple Salsa, Grilled Mozzarella Bread …and so many…

Grilled Romaine Salad

I have always believed in hard work, especially when it comes to my career and definitely when it comes to my cooking.  Where I may have had a shortcoming is with my eating….I’m sure you’re all aware at this point that I LOVE FOOD!  And, not just the actual food, but the concept, the presentation,…

Grilled Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple is always and sweet and healthy way to sweeten up any dish, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner….and this salsa could play a part of any one of those three meals.    Originally made for my birthday, it was later requested at further family functions because it combines just the right amount of heat and sweet…

Sesame Ginger Chicken Shish Kebabs

Kebabs have always been a fun way to cook your whole meal in one shot.  It involves simply the time to chop the food, marinate, skewer and grill.  It wasn’t until I did a little digging that I found out just how old this tradition is and that almost every culture in the world has…

Grilled Vietnemese Shrimp Pops with Peanut Sauce

 I finally have made it out to grill and taken photos to post.  Now, I admit, I have grilled quite a few times this year already, but it’s been a lot of the standard – burgers, brats, hot dogs, veggie packs with potatoes, onions, bell peppers…the usual.   Here is something new and fun.  It is…
