Sweet Cherry Peppers Relish

Sweet Cherry Peppers Relish

I'm quite the sandwich fanatic. And while I do make them at home, I actually prefer a sandwich that someone else makes for me in a sandwhich shop or deli.

We headed to the grocery store and I looked in the pickle and … [Read more...]

Grilled Butterflied Whole Chicken with Barbecue Sauce


One of my favorite dinners to make for my family is oven roasted whole chicken. But, this is Las Vegas, and in the summer, turning on my oven is the last thing I want to do. I avoid it as much as possible. My solution for enjoying inexpensive whole chickens in the summer is throwing them on the grill. And I don't mean cutting them up and grilling the individual pieces -- I grill spatchcocked (or butterflied) chicken. Okay, okay...I don't actually grill it, my husband does. Must give credit … [Read more...]
