Summer Grilling Tips

By

Grilling is hard, man.

At least I think so. If you want it medium rare, you must time it just right.

If you like very little pink inside, well, you have to time it right, too.

It’s a lot of pressure.

But the end result is so worth it.

That’s what I like this handy dandy grilling chart. It helps me figure out how NOT to mess up the meat.

Plus, you can see some great grilling tips from a real-live chef here. That’ll help the summer grilling become epic around your house.

Happy cooking, mates! And may the magic touch be with you. And also with me.

Summer Grill Fiesta

By

How was your Father’s Day?

Ours was pretty good, I must say! And I wasn’t even the one being celebrated!

My dad and the hubby got sufficiently feted and fussed over. And steaks were on the menu as you can see. It was a regular SUMMER GRILL FIESTA!

Someone was using his noggin when setting the permanent date for Father’s Day in June when the sun is shining and the grill is smoking.

I hope all you dads out there felt as cherished as ours did. A steak always says “I love you” at our house!

Grill Safety

By

It’s that time of year when we all venture out and take advantage of the glorious sunlight and grill away.

But how many of us have stopped to think about giving that grill a tune-up and brushing up on our grill safety?

I don’t know about you, but I’m just so giddy about grilling I usually just want to dive right in. But my husband always stops me – and does it the right way.

The grill is thoroughly cleaned, we use different plates and utensils for different meats and so on.

Are you up to speed on grilling best practices? Well, click here just to make sure. The folks at United Healthcare have put together some tips for staying healthy while grilling this summer.

That way, we can all keep grillin’ on in good health!!!
