Featuring tasty basil pesto and crunchy French bread, these Grilled Chicken Pesto Sandwiches are perfect for dinner on the grill!One of the biggest changes I had to get used to when we moved from Georgia to upstate New York is the shorter growing season.  We ended up with a larger yard which led to a larger garden.  Awesome!  But, the growing season is much, much shorter up here.  Not awesome.Continue Reading »

Chicken Souvlaki Skewers a shot.  They’re definitely one of our favorites!

If you're looking for fun grilled recipes for the summer, then give these Chicken Souvlaki Skewers a shot.  They're definitely one of our favorites!A few weeks ago, I was out in the yard doing a round of winter clean up.  You know, picking up branches, taking down the Christmas lights, raking out the last few leaves that I chose to ignore in the fall…that sort of thing.  It was the first warmish day we’d had in a while, so I didn’t mind spending a few hours getting the yard ready for the spring.  But as I was cleaning up the leaves near our front door, I looked down and saw a $10 bill up laying up against the house.  What?  A $10 bill?  What was that doing there?  And this was a pretty weathered Sawbuck.  It’d been there a while…in fact, I’d guess it’d been there all winter.Continue Reading »

Glazed Lemon Bread

Saturday morning breakfasts at home!
