At my house, we are grillers.  We grill.  All summer, almost every night.  It’s one of my favorite things about this time of year.  Nothing quite beats sitting out on the deck, and cooking up a feast of fresh food.

Grilling is also pretty easy, if you have some great go-to recipes.  Well my friends, today I am sharing my two most requested/raved about recipes with you:  Grilled Artichokes with Garlic Mayo and my tried and true Perfect Steak Marinade.  Both of these babies I created, after years of perfected just the right about of everything.  Both I have committed to memory at this point and I can tell you, they’re pretty much fail proof.  But just in case you’re unsure, we’ve put them in pretty visual video form, because we’re fancy like that.


Here are the recipes in written form:

  1. Do you have to remove the center of the artichoke before eating? I have never dared try cooking artichokes because they look intimidating but you have made it look easy.

      Hi there! As you eat the petal bases and with your way to the center, you’ll get to the heart. I gently cut away just the fuzzy stuff and the rest you eat! It’s so yummy! Hope you love it!
