Here are some of my favorite foods to grill that are away from traditional meats and vegetables.
1. CHEESE: Provolone or halloumi, when seared on each side, adds extra flavor to that cheese and fruit tray when entertaining.
Memorial Day is the first holiday of the year that brings out our inner professional griller. I love to grill but we have our favorites and it is time consuming to experiment with new sauce recipes during the busy week.
Holidays and summer vacations with family and friends challenge us, though, to be creative and step up our grilling game.
It’s that time of year when outdoor grilling makes its debut. May is considered grilling month and over Memorial week the highest volumes of grills are sold.
When considering which meal to prepare on the grill, don't be scared to try out some fun and easy vegetable recipes as well. Fresh corn in the husks will impress your guests and keep the menu light and colorful. Corn in the husks or in aluminum foil can be prepared easily in less than 35 minutes.
