Italian Shrimp Kabobs

Everything tastes better on a stick!  This meal is super yummy, but even better is that you can throw it together in the morning and then just toss it on the grill when you are ready to eat!  I am sure you can think of plenty of other delicious things to throw on the kebob, so be sure to let me know in the comments how you have modified it!

Tropical Tuna Steaks

There’s nothing better than a perfectly seared tuna steak…. except a perfectly seared tuna steak crusted in coconut and served with a side of pineapple salsa!  Talk about a simple meal that takes very little prep!  I think my hubby was confused when I called him to dinner.  He looked at me like “did you just start cooking 5 minutes ago?!”

Prep the salsa in advance.  It will allow the flavors to blend together, and make it much easier to get dinner on the table later on if you are in a hurry!

Quick and Simple Grilled Chicken

Some days just get away from you. Earlier this week, I had one of those days. It was 7:30, I was hungry, and there was raw chicken in the fridge with no dinner in sight. I threw this together in hopes that it would be good even though it didn’t spend time marinating. Wow, did I luck out! In 15 minutes, there was perfect (and scrumptious) chicken on the table! While it was grilling, I quickly sautéed up some asparagus and we had a delicious healthy meal in front of us!

Herb Brined Pork Chops

Ready to try the juiciest and most flavorful pork chops you’ve ever made? We all know that brining does fabulous things to the Thanksgiving turkey, but I bet you haven’t thought to try the magical potion on a pork chop! Once it is brined, you can cook in whichever way is easiest for you. I will be grilling my chops, but broiling or searing in a cast iron skillet are both great options!
