BBQ Rub

This barbecue rub is out of this world! Now, would I lie to you? This recipe makes a lot, but you will want to use it on just about everything. It is also easy to measure out because everything is in tablespoons. This is meant to be rubbed into your meat before dry roasting or…

Memphis Style Pork Ribs

I like the Memphis style of pork rib because it is seasoned with a dry rub for starters.  Later, or rather optionally, you can choose to baste them with a mopping sauce (recipe included).  Then you can serve with a traditional BBQ sauce if you so desire.  Despite being a bit labor intensive, it only…

Grilled Shallots

  Grilling shallots makes a simple, yet sweet, side dish that pairs with anything grilled. Leftovers are terrific chopped and added to salads,  soups, and other recipes.

Grilled Mussels and Clams

I think mussels and clams must be my husband’s favorite food.  I swear he requests them all the time.  I like them also, but only in an appetizer portion.  I’d also need a nice large tossed salad or something to go with.  For my better half, I just need to make a nice sauce and…

Grilled Chicken Breasts

Grilled Fish with Macadamia Nut Butter

We are right in the middle of the famous Zaar World Tour and I volunteered to do a cooking challenge involving making something that was gluten-free on the barbie.  Yes, we are virtually visiting Australia/New Zealand!  I sort of cheated and used a recipe from the cookbook that was already tagged as gluten-free, but hey,…

Grilled Salmon

Grilled salmon is great because it cooks so fast and is very easy and forgiving.  It comes out equally well on an outdoor grill as well as an indoor grill pan.  Barring either, just an ordinary skillet will work well too.

Tequila Glazed Chicken

We all need different ways to prepare chicken breasts, I think.  It is such a lean piece of protein, but can get boring if prepared the same way over and over.  Here it is marinated, then grilled.  If you do not have access to an outside grill, you should invest in a cast iron grill…
