Getting Grill Ready
The weather is perfect- it’s time to start grilling. If you’re like me, your grill has been sitting outside un-covered for a few months.
The first thing I do is hose off the outside of the grill- this removes most of the larger particles and debris. Then, I fill a bucket with hot, soapy water and begin to hand-wash the outside of the grill. If the surface of your grill is stainless steel, or has a painted coating, use a non-abrasive sponge to avoid scratches and permanent blemishes. Carefully wash off the soapy water and hand-dry with a cotton cloth.

I’m a big fan of chili, especially during the cold winter months. I don’t make traditional chili too often because I find ground meat too fatty, and kidney beans waxy. This Chicken Chili recipe is delicious, nutritious, and satisfying.

I met a friend out for dinner last night. Initially I was in the mood for deep-fried goodness, so we ventured to D’s Six Pax and Dogz. Unfortunately, D’s doesn’t serve food after 10pm on the weekends. Luckily, The Map Room was open, and the kitchen was still making food.

Traditional chicken salad is good, but my favorite recipe has pecans and grapes in it- the added texture and flavors go together perfectly.

Chicken Parmesan is one of my all-time favorite dishes. It’s easy to make, and everyone loves it. In this recipe I use Italian-style panko breadcrumbs. These breadcrumbs make the chicken extra crispy and delicious. Give this recipe a try- your family and friends will devour it!
