Easy Grilling: Jamaican Spiced Flank Steak

I do a lot of grilling in the summer, but honestly, I am grilling year-round. Every year, I work on so many grilling recipe projects for food clients, magazines and cookbooks, and my kids love almost anything that is cooked on the grill. Flank steak is always on the top of my list, and I love this Jamaican Flank Steak recipe. The marinade is really fabulous, made with orange juice, lime juice, fresh ginger, brown sugar, pepper and cinnamon. One of my friends tried it, and she told me she only cooks flank steak this way now. Serve this with a tossed salad, fresh fruit or grilled asparagus, and dinner is fresh, healthy and simple.

Easy Dinner Idea: Grilled Pizza with Basil, Mushrooms and Mini Pepperoni

99808-1

I recently saw a pizza grill pan last week in the window at The Cook Store, a wonderful neighborhood cooking store where I live. I thought to myself, “I want that!”. I received one for a present shortly thereafter, and I was very excited (thanks @jon_lewistwitter handle). I used it the other night when I was in a pinch as I was testing recipes for my upcoming book (Chipotle Pork Wraps with Slaw).  My kids didn’t want that for dinner so I threw this Grilled Pizza with Basil, Mushrooms and Mini Turkey Pepperoni together for them. I ended up eating both (of course) because it turned out so great!

Balsamic-Glazed Pork with Grilled Nectarines

Grilling season is here, and it’s so fun to be outside cooking on the grill while the kids are enjoying summertime. I am still in the midst of summer all-star baseball, so me being in a hurry is an understatement. Sometimes, I even use a grill pan indoors just to speed up the process. Balsamic Pork Chops with Grilled Nectarines is an awesome recipe. It is so quick and easy and incredibly flavorful. All my kids ate it, and we even ran out of food. This is perfect for Father’s Day, Memorial Day or any weeknight this time of year. This recipe was adapted from Clean Eating magazine.
