Father’s Day Favorite: Buffalo Hot Wings and Honey-Garlic Wings

img_20101

Since men love buffalo wings and hot wings, I thought I would offer up a wing recipe for Father’s Day. The trick with these is preparing them on the grill. That will save you on calories and fat not deep frying them in hot oil over the stove. I love this recipe for Honey-Garlic Wings which I have adapted from Weber’s Way to Grill Cookbook. For the Buffalo Hot Wings, just combine 3/4 cup of hot sauce with 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1 clove of minced garlic and marinate the wings in that ¬†mixture and continue with the grilling instructions below. Or, I love Moore’s Hot Wing Sauce if you’re in a hurry. Enjoy these during summertime, Father’s Day or Fourth of July.

Memorial Day Dinner: Easy Sirloin Steak-Vegetable Kebobs

I love making kebobs this time of year, especially for Memorial Day. It’s the beginning of summer, and the kids are out of school. The combination of sirloin steak ¬†and vegetables are awesome, and this recipe will work with chicken, shrimp or all of the above. If you don’t have time to make this simple marinade, I love Thomas Marinade (found at Fresh Market) and Moore’s Marinade. Also, most groceries have prepared kebobs in the meat section to simplify your life even more. Enjoy hanging outside and happy Memorial Day!
