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!
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.
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…
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…
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….
Grilled Pork Tenderloin 2 Ways
I never used to look at pork tenderloin as a meal to get excited about. It was always ok, a little lacking on flavor, but ok. This summer I decided to change this, and I found two incredible ways to do it. The best part? One way is home made, and one way is store…
Smokey Barbequed Baby Back Ribs
I’m going to say it: These are the best ribs ever. Now, you don’t have to believe me, but if you’re going to doubt at least give them a shot to find out. If after you eat them you still think I’m wrong, well, you’re crazy. Certifiably nuts. These ribs and tender and juicy (thank you brine), they are…
