Welcome to my kitchen! This is a blog that is evolving as my life does. I like food, but I don't have all the time in the world to cook. So lately, I'm going with simple, easy recipes. I may switch that up occassionally and post something time-intensive, but that isn't what I'm about these days. If that sounds like you - I hope you enjoy some of these recipes.

Our new grill!
We have the little Smokey Joe from Weber that we take to all of our disc dog competitions, camping, picnics, etc. But we only had a gas grill at home. It was a gift from my mom and her husband 4 years ago for our housewarming party, since we were having a BBQ - but had no grill my mom pulled through for us. It is a great little grill, but it is on the smaller side and let's face it, to really grill-one needs charcoal. So for our wedding we registered for this bad boy. And my dad bought it for us! (Well, let's face it, it's for Jeff-the grill master.)
I love food grilled with charcoal. I'm so excited to have this new grill finally put together. We kept it in the box all winter long since we didn't have a cover yet and didn't want to expose it to the winter conditions here. Once summer hit-that grill was built! The first item up? Boneless ribs. :)
Please excuse the fact that we are drinking Twisted Tea.... That's not normally our style. ;-)
We will still be keeping our trusty gas grill, for the days that waiting for the charcoal to heat up just isn't an option. IE: Amy is hungry and therefore grumpy....must eat food NOW to make Jeff's life better. But I am so excited to have this new grill. On the menu soon....spare ribs. 3 racks of them. And they will all fit in this grill! Oh this is happening and I can't wait.
