It's still grilling season!

I thought I'd highlight the still-wonderful days of summer while they're lasting and share some grilling recipes that we really enjoy!

I'm just curious, do any of you girls reading this know how to man a grill? I guess there's a reason why it's called "man" the grill. I have never grilled a single thing before in my life! I can prep all the stuff, but it's my hubby who gets the grill ready, grills the food, cleans up afterward. Sound familiar to anyone else? We have a small gas grill that fits pretty well in our tiny little patio area we call a backyard, but we would love one of the nice electric grills when we get a house with a bigger yard, for sure!

For a fresh and yummy dinner on the grill, you should try out the recipe for Chili-Lime Mango Chicken Skewers!
{I'm not a big fan of mangos, so I prefer my skewers with pineapple instead. You could cook up some of both for a colorful, delicious dish!}

These would be so great to take on a camping trip! Just do all the prep work before you go, wrap the skewers in plastic bags in the cooler, and then stick them on your portable grill!

This recipe comes from Our Best Bites, one of my very favorite food blogs. Everything I have made from these girls so far, I have loved!
They have a few other very useful grilling tutorials on their site, plus tons of other recipes for the grill! Here are a few of my favorite resources:

*How to grill pizza on the BBQ here
*How to grill corn on the BBQ here
*How to grill the perfect steak here (still need to try that one out!)

So get out there and enjoy a few more grilled meals before fall weather starts rolling in! And visit if you're looking for some great deals on new grills!


  1. We haven't grilled with you guys at all this summer (for obvious reasons). We must do it soon!

  2. My husband always mans the grill! Lol. I SO know what you are talking about. I've never taken the time to learn how to work the thing.


Comments make me happy :)
