I'm a sucker for a good skirt steak and this recipe is amazing!! It makes the steak juicy and your palette craves for the salty sweet combinations. I like to pair it with zucchini and orange/red pepper melody. I usually coat the veggies in some olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Enjoy! Let me know what you think.

This is a recipe from a wonderful loving mom whose legendary chicken marinade should be shared for others to enjoy! This is a classic recipe that I have made time and time again for my picky eating family to my carnivorous guy friends. It's classic, tangy and sweet. And most likely you will have all the ingredients on hand in your pantry and fridge. Simple * Quick * Delicious !
1 Cup brown sugar
3 Tbs yellow mustard
3 Tsp liquid smoke
3 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 Bottle of ketchup (32 oz)
Stir together over heat until fully mixed together. Pour over meat and let marinade over night. Save extra as a BBQ sauce and keep bottled in a fridge.
This recipe from Martha Stewart is absolutely amazing! My favorite thing to grill is chicken drummies and this is one recipe that I'm permanently adding to my recipe box. Martha's recipe requires you to bake the chicken, I just marinated the drummies in the sauce and threw them on the grill. Either way I'm sure they're amazing! It goes well with squash or asparagus coated in olive oil and garlic salt. Enjoy and let me know what you think!

6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
1 Package Marshmallows
3 TB Margarine or Butter
Food Coloring (red and blue)
Gather supplies and divide all ingredients into 3 bowls
I like to microwave my marshmallows because it’s easier. I stick them in for a few minutes or until they start to get big and almost touch the top of the microwave. Take them out, stir well and add the food coloring. Then add the 2 cups of Rice Krispies and stir well. Press into well greased 9×13 or 9×9 depending on the thickness of your treats
Do this for all three layers. Blue, White (no food coloring)red
Let sit for 20 min and Enjoy!
These are so unique and yummy. If you like goat cheese this recipe is for you! Enjoy!
3 zucchini (about 1/2 pound each), sliced lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 ounces soft goat's cheese
1 tablespoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon basil
Cut zucchini the long way and get rid of the ends of the zucchini.
Brush each slice with olive oil
Season each slice with salt, pepper and garlic salt
Place each slice on the grill for about 4 min each side, or until tender
Mix together goat cheese, parsley, lemon juice
Take mixture and spread onto each zucchini slice, roll up tightly, spread accordingly so the mixture isn't gooing out.
Repeat with each zucchini slice
Pizza Dough (You can buy it from your local favorite Deli, Easy and Cheap!)
1/2 Cup Sharp Cheddar
1/2 Cup Mozzarella
1/2 Cup Parmesean
1/2 Sliced and already cooked Turkey Pepperonis
1 Grilled/cooked Chicken Apple Sausage
2 cooked Asparagus
Roll out the dough, make sure you do this in flour, so the dough does not stick to the grill.
Place the dough onto the grill and cover over medium heat around 3 minutes each side, or until golden brown on both sides.
Place sliced tomatoes on the pizza and smash until covered like a sauce
Take the pizza off the grill and add all of your ingredients.
Start with Mozzarella cut and sliced, parmesan, pepperonis, sausage, asparagus and end with Sharp Cheddar cheese over all ingredients.
Place pizza back on the grill for 2 min or until all of the cheese is melted.
Let cool for 5 min, and serve!
This is an original recipe that I've created. I'm a sucker for honey, pineapple and red peppers on the grill. It makes for perfect accessories for a skewer! Yumm.
4 chicken breast cut into thick chunks
Pineapple chunks (can w/ heavy syrup)
1 red pepper (cut into slices/chunks)
1 cup ketchup
1 cup honey
1 tsp dijion mustard
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 garlic crushed garlic cloves (I use the minced garlic in the jars)
1 tsp hot sauce ( I like tobacco, but feel free to use a milder hot sauce)
Cook all ingredient in a skillet on low heat until combined and melted down into a sauce.
I buy organic chicken breast and cut the chicken into chunks myself. Feel free to do the same with the pineapple, cutting into chunks yourself. Though I recommend buying pineapple chunks in a can with heavy syrup.
Cut your red pepper into slices and chunks big enough to thread thru the skewer.
Take your skewer sticks and poke thru your chicken, pineapple and red pepper. Combine them every other one, though I like to include more chicken on the sticks!
Once all skewers are threaded, lay them down in a baking dish and brush the sauce over the skewers, drenching them as much as possible.
Cover with tin foil and marinade in fridge for 30 min.
After marinading place skewers directly on the grill, turning frequently and spritzing with water if necessary. These babies can get dried out quickly. When skewers turn a deep brown color you know they're ready! Serve hot and enjoy! FYI Always check your chicken first to make sure it's not pink.
By far one of the best recipes I've found on pinterest! The sauce was to die for and everyone that ate it thought I was a culinary genius! But I must give credit to Mels Kitchen Cafe for the recipe.
