Come join me in the country as I navigate life as a working mom with an array of critters, kids and husband in tow! You'll find a little of everything - food and parties, kids and craft projects, gardening and outdoor fun, a top-to-bottom house renovation, family and traditions, community and women's issues. Grab your boots and let's get to it!
We are having what is officially a scorcher here in Michigan, land of the ever-changing weather, and when its this hot and the A/C is running all the time that means those grills get fired up. If you are looking for some inspiration to change up your usual grilling routine, there are a lot of great ideas out there but I am drooling over these offerings being featured at Carole's Chatter...including my Open-Faced Bacon Burger recipe pictured above. If you haven't stopped by Carole's Chatter before, she's got a great site categorized by ingredient or food type such as breakfast. Clicking on the food name takes you to not only tips on what goes well with an item and how to prepare it, but also to a link-up so you'll find a list of tasty recipes posted by all kinds of bloggers to open up a world of new ideas to inspire your cooking! Here are a few more of my grill-friendly recipes for you (some of these were done in the skillet or broiler but work equally well for grilling): Shish-Kabobs Deluxe Grill Packets Herbed Sweet Corn and Lemon Pepper Chicken Drumsticks Blackened Chicken Legs
