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.

If you’re looking for the best new grilling book, look no further. Weber’s newest book, Weber’s Way To Cook, by Jamie Purviance, is filled with incredible recipes, photos, tips and techniques. Actually, I had the opportunity to work with Jamie on this fabulous cookbook, and I want to personally try every recipe myself. In fact, I love so may of the recipes that I couldn’t decide which one to put in my blog, but since so many people ask me for chicken ideas, I thought the Lemon-Oregano Chicken Breasts would be a nice fit. This recipe is so simple, healthy and flavorful and perfect for the entire family. Trust me, on about this book, you will love it.

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!

Low Budget Dinner: Sausage Mushroom Pizza

Instead of using pizza crust, why not try pita bread? This recipe is great topped with Italian sausage, green peppers and mushrooms, but feel free to use your own favorite toppings. These pizzas can also be grilled easily. Grill over medium heat 7 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned. Not only are these pizzas delicious, but they are economical and child-friendly.
