While the first day of summer is still 2 weeks away, I’m ready for the summer salad season to begin! The weather here in Chicago has been unfortunately chilly for June but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying delicious grilled food and cold brews indoors! With family in town all last week, my fridge was an empty sad sight and I felt like I hadn’t been grocery shopping in ages. Instead of...

I hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day! We had incredible weather in Chicago for the holiday. I went on a bike ride, met up with some friends at the beach, and had everyone over later for a cookout by the pool! Lately, Will and I have been obsessed with making onions on the grill. You can put these grilled onions on a hotdog, bratwurst, burger, or just eat them plain (they are that...

Tonight I grilled some steak and veggie kabobs outside while enjoying the rest of this weekend’s beautiful weather! I was able to get out to the pool for a bit this afternoon, went for a 7 mile run along Lake Michigan in the blazing heat, and then made kabobs to grill for dinner! Kabobs are so easy, you can put just about anything you have available in your kitchen on a kabob stick! Last...

Sunday night was the perfect night to grill out here in Chicago! I had put a slab of ribs in the fridge to marinade Saturday afternoon, but this was not your typical marinade. Per a recipe in Cook This Not That, I used Dr. Pepper soda to marinate my ribs! I thought this was such a clever and unique idea that of course I had to try it! Here’s what you do: Dr. Pepper Ribs gluten-free,...
