Thanksgiving is officially less than a week away and I am sure you are in full on menu planning mode by now! I know the traditional roasted turkey is usually on everyone’s menu plan, but this year I have a new method for cooking your turkey that will free up oven space and have your turkey ready from start to finish in under an hour! My citrus herb butter grilled turkey is so full of flavor and makes for a stunning presentation for any holiday table!

Who says you have to leave your house to have a little fun in the sun? One of my favorite things to do is hang out with my guys right in our own backyard! A little fun in the sun with all of the comforts of home? Sign me up! I love creating a fun atmosphere with good food, fun games, and family time! Luckily for me, Kroger Marketplace was the perfect one stop shop to create the best backyard BBQ right at home!
I use our grill about 90% of the time during the summer months. I find myself cooking just about anything and everything on it from meats to veggies to pizzas! I love not having to turn on my oven and the flavor that a grill gives food is hard to beat! Skewers are one of those things that you can make out of any ingredients you have in your fridge and are a great way to use up some of your favorite summer vegetables! My grilled lemon and thyme chicken sausage and veggie skewers are so perfect for any night of the week and your whole family will love them too!
Happy almost 4th of July guys! We just got back from the beach yesterday and I am super excited that this week is a holiday week to help me ease back into the swing of things. I am trying to get my mind out of vacation mode and back into working mode after a week relaxation! And while I am trying to get back into the grind around here, one thing is for sure I will be lighting up the grill for the 4th and one of my favorite recipes is definitely going to happen! My easy pork rib marinade is the perfect recipe for fail-proof delicious ribs that would be perfect for your BBQ tomorrow!
Ummmmm, how is it August already guys? The summer is passing entirely too quickly and although I'm ready for the heat to leave, I am not ready for the idea of summertime to go away! I am holding on to all things grilled, fresh, and easy and pretending like we are not officially one and a half months away from Parks turning ONE! Holy moly! That's a whole other subject though, so let's stick to why we are here and that is for the pork! Grilling pork chops is one of the easiest and healthiest ways to prepare the meat and though it can be tricky, my method of perfectly grilled pork chops will give you a juicy chop every time!
I've been back in the kitchen this week cooking for My Diary of Us (finally) and dang, it feels good. With so much going on in my life right now, both work and personal, I have been neglecting this space that I have always loved coming to. I'm jumping back in with baby steps and just kinda feeling my way back into the groove of it all. But, with the said, I am jumping back in with an ultimate summertime recipe that you are going to want to make at your next barbecue...or if you are obsessed with grilling like me, then you will want to whip this one up on any ole night of the week. My grilled apricot and chicken skewers are super healthy and have an explosion of flavors that will have your whole family begging for seconds.
