The sun is making it’s way back to out warm us and the outdoor decor is making it’s way out of storage. Grilling season is back in business. Cleaning the grill is essential to the flavor of your foods and with a few simple tools and a bit of elbow grease you can have that knocked out in 15 minutes or so. Take a few mins and head over to Real Simple for quick tips on grill cleaning.
Our first BBQ of the season will encompass friends and fam and we are looking forward to opening the deck for the spring / summer with a few cocktails, brews, grilled meats and fab side dishes. The winter seems to have stretched on forever this year and even though the temps here in the Northwest are still a bit on the chilly side, it’s time to celebrate.
I have friends who refuse to marinate their meats, they feel it detracts from the flavor. The trick of course, is use ingredients that do not mask or overpower the meat, but to compliment it. Choosing the right ingredients for the meat you are cooking is key and it’s a very simple process. Using a large zippy bag, combine your marinade ingredients, add your meat and push out all of the air before sealing tightly. Make sure your ingredients are mixed well before adding meat. Place in fridge over night.

There are so many sites and amazing blogs on the web and we do our best to connect you with the best of the best. It takes a lot of time to browse through content to find sites where quality is priority, recipes are clearly written out and the ads and pop ups are at a minimum. When parents work full time, finding the time to “surf for recipes” isn’t always on top of the list. That is why this site is here, to highlight outstanding sites and the people who create them.
The men and women who create these recipes and document them step by step, put a lot of time and effort in to their site. If you share a photo or recipe that is here, please make sure the link to the site or blog where it has originated goes with the “share”. Not all sites have watermarked their photographs, yet, although I am hoping more bloggers will apply this soon, and their imagination and creativity should be celebrated and recognized by all who view the content.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. ~ Karie Engels
