Peachy Orange BBQ Chicken


When your typical BBQ meal becomes average to the same group of eaters, it’s time to think of something new. BBQ is just so easy when I’m in the mood to cook for others but would love to have it little less mess and the help of a BBQ master J

Usually when I’m grilling for more than just me and someone else I have someone on the grill manning the food so nothing burns, while I handle the kitchen duties.

What I LOVE about this chicken is that is has sweetness along with the little zing of the orange. It’s always great to have something you can grill that isn’t a burger or steak. It’s fun to surprise your guests who think they are coming over for a typical BBQ with something that will make their taste buds say “what’s this new bbq taste I’m experiencing here?”. (more…)

Watermelon & Feta Salad


Whenever I look at watermelon all I can think of is the summer camp I went to when I was a kid. The highlight of the summer was our watermelon seed contest. Each group would have to gather as many seeds from eating watermelon as possible. When it came down to judging, if the head of camp thought you cheated, which happened a lot, usually  by putting chunks of watermelon in your cup, he would dump the entire thing over your head. It was a huge mess and enough fun to keep a smile on your face the rest of the day.

Summer and watermelon are just those things that make sense together. Like the phrase two peas in a pod. This is what I think of when it is summer time. What’s summer without a little watermelon in your diet?!

This recipe is great because you can make a lot of it or a little depending on who you have to feed. I made this recipe for a serving for myself. If you want to make it as a large salad then you can triple or quadruple it.

RECIPE:

  • 2 Cups Cubed Watermelon
  • ½ cup Halved Grape or Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 Persian Cucumber
  • ½ of an Avocado – Cubed
  • 1.2 of a Lemon – Juiced
  • 1/2 tsp. Olive Oil
  • 1-2 tbsp. Crumbled Feta
  • ½ tsp. Chopped Mint
  • 4 Basil Leaves – Chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

Combine everything in a bowl. Mix well and eat it right away.
