BBQ Corn Dogs

There is no magic recipe for this one here. Take some store-bought corn dogs and slap them onto the charcoal grill. Mmmmm! I think this is my new favorite way to eat them. Yum!!

Peach Blackberry Sangria

You have seen many recipes here of my mojitos but we have now perfected a new cocktail....SANGRIA! I had been dying to try making this and we decided to stop looking for a recipe and just throw things into a jug, see how it comes out! And it came out wonderfully :)

Peach Blackberry Sangria

Combine one bottle red wine, 2-3 cups lemon lime soda, cut up peach slices, pkg of blackberries. Mix everything together and let it get happy for at least an hour before serving. When ready to serve, fill a glass with ice and a few extra peach slices before pouring in the sangria. I topped mine with a mini-skewer of grapes :) Enjoy!

Grilled Chicken Fajitas

A healthy dinner on the grill! The other night we barbecued on our charcoal grill some chicken breast (lightly seasoned with tex mex) and peppers. We cut them up after grilling into strips. We also had shredded cheese, corn, and sour cream in our fajita station. The soft tortillas were lightly grilled to warm up and give them up a bit of a crisp. And we had tortilla chips with salsa as a side :)

S'mores on a Charcoal Grill

Everyone loves s'mores, no? But I don't go camping and we haven't invested in a firepit for a backyard yet. Then the other day we had finished dinner and the charcoal grill was still hot... IDEA! And it worked!!! We made our s'mores bundles of crackers, chocolate, and big marshmallow in a pan and on the grill they went.  Soooo good!
