Grilled Tri Tip

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

This recipe is inspired by one I found here that was very highly rated. My version is scaled down and has my own twists, of course. This turned out quite well, and I'm glad I gave it a try. I can definitely see doing this again over ...

First Grilling of the Season

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

We fired up the grill for the first time this year, finally. Fresh thick asparagus spears, tiny "marble" potatoes, and little thinly cut t-bone steaks, served with some sautéed garlicky mushrooms. :-)

Greek Pasta Salad

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

This is a great recipe for a crowd. I've posted it here before, but I've made a few modifications since then, so here's how I made it today for a potluck lunch tomorrow. If you'd like to make a meal of this, grill up about a pound of chicken ...

Herbed Chicken

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Another of the chicken recipes adapted from this month's Cooking Light. I made enough for the two of us, and altered the herbs to suit us. This was pretty tasty and nice and fast for a weeknight. Herbed Chicken Serves 2 2 skinless boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 lb) For the ...

Beefalo Burgers

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Dinner tonight was some very tasty beefalo burgers. Beefalo (no, that's not a typo) is a cross-breed between domestic cattle and the North American Bison. It's significantly lower in fat and somewhat higher in protein and nutrients than beef. I grilled these up in a grill pan ...

Herb Rubbed Pork Ribs with Cherry Zinfandel Barbecue Sauce

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Tonight's dinner came from the pages of Sunset. I used frozen cherries in the sauce and omitted the mustard, and cut both recipes by about 1/3 to go with the one rack of ribs that I had. I thought this was just okay, kinda greasy, and Shaun didn't ...

Citrus Tequila Chicken

Monday, July 5th, 2010

This Mexican-inspired chicken is inspired by a similar recipe I saw on Cooking in Cucamonga. The marinade works very well and made for an easy and flavorful meal on the grill for the long holiday weekend. I served this with some refried beans and a tossed green salad. ...

Mushroom Burgers

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

Another take on low carb burgers - these I made with 85% lean ground beef, similarly seasoned with salt, pepper, and a bit of Worcestershire; each patty about 1/4 lb and 1/2 inch thick; and grilled for about 4 minutes on each side. To go with it, I sauteed ...

Grilled Buffalo Bacon Burgers

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

This was a tasty and easy summer meal for a lovely sunny day :-) Doing the low carb thing, we used lettuce for our buns, which worked out very nicely. We didn't miss the bread at all, which was a very pleasant surprise. ...

Garlic Marinated Chicken Cutlets with Asparagus and Potatoes

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Yet another good launching point from Everyday Food: Great Food Fast. I omitted most of the oil and all of the butter called for, and I cooked this in the oven, but I think the grill would add a great extra dimension of flavor. We added a little ...
