The warm weather finally has arrived which means grilling season has started. My family loves ribs and when I saw this recipe in Gaby Dalkin’s recent cookbook “What’s Gaby Cooking: Everyday California Food” I knew I had to make it. Why – when I already have a few versions for grilling ribs; Ina Garten’s which … Continue reading
Whole Foods had some beautiful, boned legs of lamb recently and I thought about the different recipes I might make. I don’t make a big roast any more as there are not enough people to eat it. I thought about a curry recipe I wanted to try, maybe an Irish stew and since it’s still … Continue reading
It is cherry season in Michigan which is one of our best fruit crops that we all look forward to every year. The season is short and this year I planned ahead and I froze a bunch of pitted sweet cherries to use for pies and such at a later time. Place the pitted cherries … Continue reading

Well, I am finally writing down a recipe for grilled bread, just in time for grilling season. This is a favorite way to serve it and everyone loves the “cheesy” flavor with a hint of garlic.
I never thought about grilling green beans but in a recent Midwest Living magazine there was a recipe. I liked the idea, but changed the directions and ingredients. Besides, I had to use my fresh green beans from my small garden I just planted this year. Green bean plants growing with my antique black crow guarding … Continue reading
