Chinese BBQ Pork is a takeout favourite for me! Tender, slightly sweet pork slices full of flavour that are perfect on their own, and in tons of recipes!
These turkey gyros combine two of my favourite things in one: a restaurant copycat recipe, and the BBQ. Seriously, nothing makes me happier than replicating our favourite restaurant foods at home. Between the sports schedule of three kids, and the budget we’re trying to stick to, restaurant meals are a luxury. This is why I…
Easy Pork Souvlaki with Grilled Garlic and Herb Pitas
Tender and flavourful bites of pork with a garlicky marinade, these pork souvlaki are just as good as your favorite take out, and can still be a quick weeknight meal. Pair it with some fresh herb and garlic grilled pitas, and you’ll never order in again!
Cajun style stuffed BBQ chicken breasts
Cajun style chicken breasts stuffed with mozzarella cheese and sautéed peppers and onions, then grilled, make for a quick and easy weeknight meal that’s not short on flavour!
Citrus Ginger Chicken with 3 melon and feta salsa
Incredibly flavourful and tender chicken marinated in a mixture of citrus, ginger, and beer. Grilled and then topped with a citrus three melon salsa and crumbled feta, this will quickly become a new summer favorite!
Asian Style Flank Steak
A flavour packed flank steak thanks to a surprisingly simple marinade that you quickly grill for one of the easiest, and tastiest meals of the summer! This is actually the steak I caught my husband with!
Top 5 BBQ Recipes
These are my top five recipes for the BBQ, the ones I go back to over and over again because they never let me down.
BBQ Jerk Chicken Pizza #GrillWithGrace
UPDATE: I’ve included the recipe for regular (non-jerk style) BBQ chicken in the notes section of the recipe as well! There is nothing more that I enjoy in the summer then grilling a meal outside. The kids can go crazy in the backyard, Bo can relax with Sophie on the daybed, and I can stand at…
The Ultimate Guide to Pizza on the Grill (and the best dough recipe for grilling)
Over the last couple of weeks I’ve pretty much read every authority I could for doing pizza on the grill. My obsession with it started last summer, when on a whim I bought a ball of pizza dough and some fresh mozzarella because I didn’t feel like the salmon I was making for Bo. It…
Ultimate Macaroni Salad – Amish style with eggs and cheese
There are a few things that you just can not buy. I was walking around, trying to pick out some easy sides for a BBQ last Saturday, trying to make life easier by not making everything from scratch. I picked up the macaroni salad (it was basically fluorescent orange), I looked at the tiny little…
Buffalo Spice Rub
This is my personal “I put that s*%& on everything”. Because seriously, I put this on EVERYTHING! It started out because I love the Buffalo rub at Buffalo Wild Wings, but I can’t buy it in Canada, and I don’t want to have to shell out money every time I feel like it. This isn’t quite…
Better Than Takeout Homemade Gryos
This was such a fun recipe to make, and I felt so accomplished afterwards because it worked on the first try! That’s always a good sign, when something you think will be hard (after all, we usually pay for take out when we feel like this), turns out to not only be incredibly easy, but…
Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin
Ok, this one’s gotta be short and sweet folks because I’ve got a date with a wading pool and three kids, two of whom won’t stop asking me when we’re going. How about when it opens kids, how’s that sound. Sigh, I really must work on their spatial time knowledge. Ok, this was RIDICULOUSLY easy…
Ancho Chili and Tequila Glazed BBQ Chicken Thighs
You might have noticed from the last couple recipe posts that I live in two seasons. Winter, where I hibernate and seem to rarely cook anything exciting, and BBQ season. I love BBQ season almost as much as I love my kids. Hell, in another few months when I can have a beer while I…
Brushetta Style BBQ Pork Chops
Oh man, am I ever excited to share this recipe with you guys. Hands down, this is my new summer jam for dinner. It was so incredibly easy to whip up, it was AWESOME tasting, and the best part, it made it look like I really knew what I was doing. This is a dinner…
BBQ Style Baked Chicken Thighs
This is one of the easiest chicken dinners that I make, and it also happens to be one of Bo’s favourites. Writing it out for you is probably going to take me three times as long to do as getting this dinner in the oven, and I’ve only got 15 minutes to spare right now….
