The truth is that I love grilling season for one reason only – most of the work lands on my husband. The grill is his domain and I’m glad to let him have it!

Kabob recipes are perfect for an easy weeknight meal. All you have to do is take whatever fruit or vegetable is in season and skewer it with chunks of protein like these succulent shrimp.

      That brownie recipe really was terrific. I can’t take credit for it – Chocolate Covered Katie whipped up a very versatile recipe. Today I’m making it with bananas and then turning it into a parfait with strawberries and whipped cream. Have a good week!

    Great combo! Shrimp & pineapple take about the same time to grill, and that sauce looks really good. I love grilling season! Meant, fowl, fish, veggies – everything will get grilled at our house one time or another this summer.
