A new toy

  We added a new toy to our arsenal this past week…a Blackstone 17″ griddle. I wanted to get the 36″ cuz bigger is always better, but I reigned myself in as our back porch really doesn’t have the room and I knew if I stored it in the garage, it just wouldn’t get used.… Continue reading A new toy

Soy Vay Island Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

NMT Favorite Grilled Chicken Marinade

     In case you didn’t know, we’re big fans of Chris over at NibbleMeThis (which from here on out will be referred to as NMT).

Elevate Your Burger This Summer

Umami Burgers      We are deep into spring and summer time is almost upon us.For some, that means pulling out the grill, dusting it off and maybe doing a few repairs to it in order to get ready for the summer. And then there are others, like us, who grill all year round.  Regardless of which… Continue reading Elevate Your Burger This Summer
