Steak and Mushroom Kebabs

Steak and Mushroom Kebabs

We are officially one week into our 100 Days of Barbecue and we haven’t missed a day! We’ve also gotten into a pretty good routine with prepping the grill, and the clean up after as well. This is the first kebab recipe I’ve made this […]

Kansas City Style Pork Chops

Kansas City Style Pork Chops

Once you start researching the different kinds of barbecue sauces there are, and where they come from and the traditional recipes they’re made from, it’s like information overload. Actually, it’s part information overload and part opinion overload. I’ve tried to get to the root of […]

Day 5 of 100 Days of Barbecue – Top Sirloin Gyros

Day 5 of 100 Days of Barbecue – Top Sirloin Gyros

I know better, I really do. Gyros are made with lamb, not beef. I know people make them with beef, but usually I would never be a part of such a travesty. However, I had already started preparing the sirloin, which was actually sliced very […]

Rosemary Chicken

Rosemary Chicken

I didn’t fire up the grill on day 3 until almost 9pm because time flies at my bestie’s house. 😉 We didn’t let that get in the way of the 100 Days of Barbecue though! I had already been marinating the steaks all day, so […]

Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

I have attempted to do this crazy summer of barbecue idea before, and I failed. However, the last time I tried I was an overscheduled dance mom and this time around I am a pretty laid back homebody so I think it’ll work. The recipe […]

Oh my gosh you guys! I have been so busy working on a log redesign behind the scenes, and in the middle of all of that, we moved back to LA from Salt Lake, so it’s been a hectic time around here. Beautifully hectic, but […]

Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate Cupcakes

I usually choose a cookbook every January to cook and bake my way through over the year. This year my youngest, Daphne, asked if she could pick one to work through as well! I told her that her brother and sister have baked their way […]

Periodic Table Battleship

Periodic Table Battleship

What a neat idea this is! I believe original credit for this game should go to Karyn over at Teach Beside Me. There are a lot of cute and fun educational ideas in the subscriber section of her blog, totally worth a look! When I […]
