Grilled Chicken Satay

I can’t even remember which magazine I clipped this recipe from a few year ago, but I have been craving Chicken Satay with a nutty dipping sauce, so I dug this out of my pile of clipped recipes this week. There has been been slight chaos going on lately with all the coronavirus craziness. I…

Jerk Chicken

Attention to all my trager friends. I swear this is a recipe for you. This is another great Cook’s Illustrated favorite of mine and has instructions for how to smoke the chicken on the BBQ grill which is what I do because I don’t have a trager. So I guess this is really a recipe…

Carne Asada

My husband announced yesterday that he is trying a low carb diet. And right after that, I announced that I don’t cook low carb. Enchiladas were on the menu for dinner tonight mostly because I made some really good Spanish rice the other day that I wanted to reuse as a side. However, all day…

Grilled Lemon Chicken with Rosemary

I love any recipe in the summer that keeps the heat outside and this is a nice change up from regular ol’ BBQed chicken.  I found this gem in a Cooks Illustrated magazine.  This chicken stays moist and has a great flavor.  Plus, left overs sliced up taste great even cold the next day. GRILLED…

Thai-Style Basil Shrimp and Coconut Rice

I had a half used jar of Thai red curry paste in my freezer and saw this recipe in a food network magazine that used red curry paste to season grilled shrimp.  I’m a sucker for using up ingredients in the fridge so decided to try it one hot summer day when I wanted to…

Thai Grilled Cornish Hens

It got to be about 100 degrees today.  I pulled out the blow up pool for the kids and put it under the swing set slide.  All the neighbor kids were over to join in on the fun, and I decided to keep the heat outside today and cook dinner on the grill.  My latest…

Hoisin Glazed Grilled Pork Kebabs

I love the idea of pork, but often times find it bland and kind of dry.  I was flipping through summer issues of Cooks Illustrated and saw an article with a recipe for grilled pork tenderloin kebabs.  They boasted tender meat with a great flavor.  The reason for the kebab was to get bite size…

Teriyaki Flank Steak

This is so simple I’m not even sure it’s considered a recipe.  I’m not sure who came up with this first my Dad or my Grandma, but I remember having it at her house the first time I got a taste for it, but she had my Dad cook it.  This is honestly one of…

Grilled Glazed Baby Back Ribs

I must be slightly weird because I don’t love fall off the bone ribs.  I actually prefer a little chew to my ribs.  Anyways, I love this recipe because it makes ribs just the way I like them, and I can cook them start to finish in 45 minutes!  I saw this recipe in a…

Grilled Pork Chops

I’m genuinely not overly impressed with pork chops.  They are often dry and bland and just not my favorite.  I want to like them and have tried cooking them over the years, but am usually disappointed.  But, Cooks Illustrated published the most wonderful BBQ pork chop recipe a while back that is just delicious and…

Grilled Chicken Souvlaki

My step Dad is Greek and we’ve been introduced to a host of amazing traditional Greek dishes at family gatherings.  Souvlaki is traditionally meat and vegetables grilled on a skewer, then served in a pita wrap with a sauce.  My step Dad claims that the traditional souvlaki and gyros are served with french fries wrapped…
