Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Salad

We grill a lot every summer, but this summer has been nonstop grilling with the heat wave we've had! I can't even bear to turn the stove on, and I even cringe just boiling water for coffee every morning. Luckily there's pretty much nothing you can't grill into a meal. This recipe is nice and simple because the teriyaki sauce ... Read More

Mexican Chipotle Chicken Caesar Salad

We make some sort of Caesar Salad pretty much every single week! It started off as Tyler's obsession, but it quickly became mine as well.

Pesto Turkey Burgers with Sweet Potato Buns

My love of burgers knows no season. But the ripe seasonal produce during the summer months, and the warmer grilling weather always brings me back to making new burger recipes. This particular recipe started with some leftover pesto, and from there became a summer favorite. I still happened to have sweet potatoes around when I made this recipe. But soon ... Read More

Jalapeno Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken

This recipe is very loosely based off a pesto grilled chicken we make. I've never written down that particular recipe because it's basically chicken + pesto = dinner. But for this variation, I went with Mexican flavors, and it's been an even bigger hit! First you whirr together a few ingredients in a food processor into a 'pesto' of sorts. Then ... Read More

Grilled Romaine Salad with Strawberries and Fennel Vinaigrette

But somehow, my favorite of all favorites hasn't been on the blog until now! While I know using the word 'best' seems like a bit or a reach, or even arrogant, I think I can explain. ... Read More

Grilled Eggplant Mozzarella Stacks with Pesto and Tomatoes

This recipe started out as a desperate craving for my Eggplant Parmesan that just wouldn't go away. But it also happened to be 96ºF out, so there was no way I was going to turn on the stove to panfry the eggplant before baking it in a 450ºF oven! Instead I brushed the eggplant slices with garlic herb olive oil and ... Read More

Easy Thai Beef Salad

Do you ever get a preconceived notion in your head before you've even tried something? Well for some reason I've always steered clear of putting steak in a salad until now. My underlying thought being that why on earth would you waste something as delectable as steak by putting it in a salad? Not that I don't love a good salad, ... Read More

Does anyone else feel like summer is simply flying by? As in if I'm not careful it'll be fall, and there will still be so many things left on my summer list! Luckily we were able to do all sorts of fantastic summer things during our vacation, and I pretty much crossed off most of my summer bucket list items. (Still haven't had ... Read More
