About The Author

Alison

The kitchen is definitely my favorite place in any home. I love cooking but I also love how it brings people together. Although we lived in different cities growing up, I consider Sugar City, Idaho to be my hometown. Now, my husband and I live in Meridian, Idaho with our three not-so-little kids. My life is filled with good food, friends, and family—and it’s even better when I can find a great deal!

    We do a lot of barbecue especially now here in the Philippines where summer is almost ending and this post is a way to tweak some of the usual stuff we do. Thank you for this! I’m excited to barbecue tomorrow. Haha

    I can’t do BBQ or grilling where I live, but I sure can get ideas on which food and I know exactly the friend I can go to to hangout and have fun grilling! Nice resource here and posts!

    I am moving to a house with a garden, having a BBQ, will be something to look forward to. It is great cooking in the open air.

    BBQ is a great outdoor activity here in Geneva with almost every house having a backyard and with so many gardens where BBQ is allowed. You have great resources and information. Thanks!

    Grilled Mojo Chicken sounds amazing! all the dishes sound lovely. I usually make my own coleslaw and the red cabbage slaw sounds and looks great! I’ll be pinning this post 😀 Thanks for sharing.

    I would so much love to have a garden and make BBQs every weekend. Unfortunately I live in a flat without a balcony, and my only closeup to a real BBQ is the electric grill, but it doesn’t compare.

    I just can’t read these delicious posts of yours 😀 I so want to start grilling but there’s no place for it, That’s the downside of living a city centre. Just heard that it might not be allowed to bbq in your own garden if you have neighbours just beside you in Finland, because some people have been complaining the smell – I do hope this is a joke!

    Reply
    • Alison

      I hope that is a joke too! Can you BBQ in your public parks there? Otherwise you need to make friends with some people in the country! 🙂

    I love BBQ! I have a yard, if only I also had the time to do that often. But next time, I will definitely try some of your recipes. All great ideas, very inspiring! I will start with that GRILLED CHICKEN WITH PEACH CHUTNEY GLAZE! Thank you for sharing so many great recipes. 🙂
