These Greek Turkey Burgers are so flavorful, and I love that they can be served two different ways. Serve them on a toasted whole wheat bun with butter lettuce, cucumber slices, thin red onion slices, sliced tomato, and a little Greek yogurt or as a main dish without the bread served with rice, tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onion on the side.

The Best Chili Dogs

Chili Dogs are usually what you get at amusement parks or college cafeterias. And who hasn’t eaten one too many with messy hands and extra tissue to wipe off your face. I love them because they really take hot dogs to the next level. And these are incredibly easy to make at home. If you are soaking up all the sun and spending all your time outdoors grilling with your family, these chili dogs should be on your must make list.

These Chili Dogs are such an American classic and with our favorite fast and easy chili recipe, I bet your whole family will love them! Don’t forget the extra napkins!

Easy Homemade Chili:

Start with an easy chili recipe. You can use your house favorite, try out our Chipotle Chili recipe or use my extra easy recipe below. Make the chili a day ahead which really allows the flavors to become better. On the day, just heat it up on the grill if you like (let it simmer while you grill all the other stuff), or heat it on the stove. And you are ready to start layering your chili dogs.

Making Hot Dogs:

Choose to boil, pan fry or grill your hot dogs. Grilled hot dogs are a personal favourite plus those char marks look so good when you assemble your chili dogs.

We prefer our buns toasted most of the time, but there are people in the family who like theirs untoasted too. Toasted buns hold up better under the chili and hot dogs. And you can butter them and throw them on the grill for a minute or two for a quick toast.

Chili Dog Toppings:

I know toppings are a personal affair. Everyone likes what they like.

Choose from:

  • Red Onions
  • Sharp Cheddar
  • Relish and Pickles
  • Mustard
  • Ketchup
  • Coleslaw

Tips for the Best Grilled Chicken:

The bright and tangy flavors of this key lime chicken are amazing!  The blend of flavors make this chicken an instant favorite.  Keep in mind these tips as you prepare this super easy chicken.

  • Serve with: This chicken is amazing sliced and served in tacos.  It also livens up a fresh green salad.  Grilled pineapple and mango salsa are great sides to serve with the citrus chicken as well.
  • How do you know when the chicken is done: The chicken is done when the juices run clear.  To be sure, check to make sure the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  • Rest: Allow the chicken to rest 10 minutes before serving.

Storing Key Lime Chicken:

You may be tempted to think the longer the chicken sits in the marinade the better.  However, do not leave chicken marinating in the refrigerator for longer than 2 days.  The chicken can actually get tough if left in the marinade too long.

Once cooked, allow the chicken to cool completely, then place your chicken in a tightly sealed container with as little air as possible.  Shallow containers work great or you can wrap the chicken tightly with aluminum foil.  The leftover chicken will remain good for 3-4 days in the refrigerator.  If you do not plan to eat it right away, it can be stored in the freezer for up to 4 months.

These Grilled Chicken Kabobs are marinated in lemon juice, olive oil, za’atar, and garlic and served with a cucumber yogurt sauce on the side. You can use either chicken breasts or thighs. I use both depending on what I have on hand. Of course, breast is leaner so that means they’ll be a little drier than thighs, but both taste wonderful. Some other great grilled kabob options are these Grilled Shrimp Scampi Skewers, Grilled Salmon Kabobs, and Grilled Lemon Dijon Chicken Skewers.

Lobster is becoming one of my favorite dinners on special nights. The best lobster tail recipe ever is just as great as this one and makes it just as fun to celebrate!

Close up on lobster tail.

Grilled Cajun Garlic Butter Lobster Tails

For years I have thought of lobster tail as a special occasion only meal.  It just seems so fancy!  Maybe that’s because where I am from it is so rare to see it on a menu.  Not living by the ocean makes this meal so unique to me!  So, when I got a hold of some lobster tails I was over the moon excited to try this recipe!

I was not let down one bit! The grilled lobster turned to be as insanely delicious as I thought it would be!  It felt like it melted in my mouth! The spices were so perfect with the grilled meat and gave it just enough kick without taking away from the amazing flavors the lobster meat had on its own!  I enjoyed this meal so much and it took an ordinary night at home and made it feel like something special.  We all enjoyed it so much and will definitely be making this again soon!

Grilled Lobster Tail Ingredients:

The good news about this lobster recipe is that there is a good chance you already have almost all of the ingredients!  Butter, oil, garlic and seasonings are pretty much staples in most kitchens.  So, that will give you time to find great fresh lobster tails.  It is important that you spend the money and take the time to choose a great lobster tail.  You really do get what you pay for with this and since it is the star of the show it is worth the extra effort.

  • Lobster tails: The
  • Butter: Salted or unsalted are both good, just adjust the amount of salt you add in accordingly.
  • Olive oil: Use a high quality olive oil or extra virgin olive oil because it will taste better in the marinade.
  • Garlic Cloves: Minced
  • Salt and Pepper: To taste.
  • Cajun Seasoning

How to Grill the Best Lobster Tails:

As you know I have recently discovered a love of grilling.  So, now I am expanding my horizons and trying lobster on the grill!  It actually was so much easier than I thought it would be! Once the lobster is butterflied, just whisk a quick sauce and head to your grill.  Allow it to cook on each side and marinate as it cooks and you will have a fresh, buttery homemade lobster dinner that is unbelievable!

  1. Prep: Preheat grill to medium high heat.
  2. Butterfly the lobster: Using kitchen shears butterfly the tail by cutting down the center. Loosen the meat and pull the lobster meat upward. Salt and pepper the meat and set on a baking sheet.
  3. Whisk Sauce: In a small bowl combine melted butter, olive oil, garlic and cajun seasoning. Brush on top of the prepared lobster.
  4. Grill: Place lobster on grill flesh side down until lightly charred about 3-4 minutes. Flip over and brush again with marinade and continue to cook for about 5 more minutes until cooked throughout.

Steps to butterfly the lobster tail and marinate.

How to Butterfly Lobster:

Taking the time to butterfly the lobster tail will make a huge difference in the finished meat.  When you butterfly the tail, the meat is able to absorb more of the flavors from the marinade and the smokiness from the grill.

  1. Cut the shell: Use kitchen shears or a sharp knife to cut the shell down the middle.  Start at the big end where it meets the tail fan, but leave the shell intact.
  2. Pull apart halves: With your fingers, pull apart the shell halves so you can see the tail meat in the shell.

Tips for The Most Amazing Lobster Ever!

This grilled cajun garlic butter lobster is hard to mess up.  Seriously, you can do this! To make it the best ever, I have answered a few questions you may have and given you some of my tips for grilling lobster so that you will feel confident.  Trust me, this lobster dinner is going to be awesome!

  • Close the lid: Its a best practice with any grilled meat.  The heat needs to stay in the grill so keep the lid shut as much as possible.  Lift only to turn the lobster over and baste with more sauce.
  • How do you know when the lobster tails are done? Lobster meat will turn white and be opaque and the shell will turn red.
  • Use a meat thermometer: Lobster needs to cook to an internal temperature of 140 degrees.  If you want the best lobster ever, use a thermometer to make sure your lobster is perfectly cooked.  Pull it off the grill if it is between 135-140 because it will continue to cook after you take it off the grill.
  • How to keep the meat from sticking to the shell? Putting the cooked tail in an ice bath after grilling not only stop it from over-cooking, but it will also help the meat to slide out easier.
  • Grill on medium heat: The only way to make bad lobster is to burn it.  So keep your grill on medium heat so it will turn out perfect!

Storing Grilled Cajun Butter Lobster Tails:

Properly stored, your lobster will save in the shell for up to 2 days in the refrigerator.  If you have removed the meat from the shell it will also store for 2-3 days in the fridge.  If you need to save it for longer it will freeze well for up to 6 months.

  • To store: Allow the grilled lobster to cool completely before storing, but do not wait more than 2 hours as bacteria grow rapidly at room temperature.  Place lobster in a Ziploc bag or container where it is submerged it in liquid.  Saltwater is what I usually use, but you could also use milk or cream.  Remove as much air as possible before sealing the bag or container.
  • Reheating from frozen: Thaw overnight in the refrigerator or for a quick thaw leave the lobster in the container and put it under cool water.  Then, place the lobster in an oven safe dish with a little bit of water or butter and cover it with aluminum foil.  Finally, place it in the oven at 350 degrees until it is warm.

To Die For Ooey Gooey S’mores Bars

Ooey Gooey S’mores Bars

Last weekend we went to a friend’s house for a barbecue.  We roasted marshmallows around their fire pit and everyone made s’mores.  It was so much fun!   Now, you know that I pride myself on being able to make a pretty fantastic s’more! However, my youngest really struggled.  After a few marshmallows dropped into the fire pit and a few caught fire, finally I got the idea to make a more practical version of this classic treat.  One that would still have all the classic marshmallow chocolate and graham cracker flavors without the hassle of the fire.

These ooey gooey bars are so quick and easy.  They are perfect for those of us with no patience for waiting for the perfect marshmallow, and those who want leftovers that can be eaten for days.  And let me tell you, the texture of biting into this ooey gooey s’mores bar is unbelievable!  It has the chewy graham cracker crust, and a warm, rich chocolate layer with marshmallow oozing out of every bite.   Such an amazing dessert that everyone will be craving all summer!!

Ingredients for Ooey Gooey S’mores Bars

These ingredients are all staples in my pantry.  I find that with these basics I am ready to make most of the desserts my family loves the most!

  • Graham crackers: The sweet and crunchy crust of the s’mores bars. (UK readers use digestive biscuits if you can’t find graham crackers)
  • All purpose flour: Combine together with graham crackers and salt.
  • Salt: Adjust to your taste depending on preference and the butter you use.
  • Butter: Softened to easily mix together with graham crackers. If you use unsalted add a bit of salt so the bar is not too sweet.
  • Brown Sugar: Rich sweetness mixed in to the chewy cracker crust.
  • Vanilla Extract: Brings out the other flavors and add its own richness into the graham cracker crust.
  • Hershey Bar’s: Hershey’s is my favorite, but any kind will work.
  • Marshmallow fluff: Sweet gooey marshmallow

How to Make Ooey Gooey S’Mores Bars

These yummy treats are so easy to make and even easier to disappear! The hardest part is waiting for these babies to cool! Sometimes I even put them in the freezer to speed up the process!

  1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 8×8 inch pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  2. Crush graham crackers:  In a food processor, pulse the graham cracker sheets until finely ground without any lumps. Combine it with the flour and salt and set aside.
  3. Make Crust: Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla. Add the graham cracker and flour mixture and mix until incorporated.
  4. Form Layers:Press 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of your 8×8 inch pan. Lay the Hershey Bars evenly across the bottom. Using a small spoon dollop the marshmallow fluff evenly on top of the nutella. Crumble the remaining dough on top. I would kind of pat the dough flat with my hands and lay it on top and spread it on top. Some of the marshmallow will peek through.
  5. Bake: Place in oven for 30-35 minutes until the top is golden brown and toothpick comes out clean. Let them completely cool before cutting. They can still be a little warm and are amazing!

 

Steps to make Ooey Gooey S'mores bars.

More S’Mores Please!

I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create such a sweet, transportable s’mores dessert!  In what felt like no time I was serving these delicious treats up and everyone was amazed at how delicious they were! To make the most perfect version for your friends and family (or for yourself…self care is so important!) consider these things I learned when making mine.

  • Chocolate: Use any chocolate you have.  To me the Hershey’s Chocolate bar is the exact chocolate flavor I am looking for in a s’mores dessert.  However, any chocolate bar that you love will work great!
  • Add Peanut Butter: I experimented with adding in peanut butter and crunchy peanut butter. I have to say I loved the creamy!  I would advise melting the peanut butter slightly so it easier to spread over the chocolate layer.
  • Garnish: Add some chocolate chips on the top for an impressive presentation.  It is totally not necessary for taste, but it looks great!
  • Parchment Paper: To get a great layer of graham cracker on the top of your bars form the dough on a piece of parchment paper then carefully flip onto the top of the marshmallow fluff.  It will be easier than trying to spread it on top of the sticky fluff.
  • Graham Cracker: Be sure when you crush the graham crackers you have no big chunks left.

Serving S’Mores:

Although usually a great sign of a well made s’more is a messy face, this s’mores bar is meant to look a little more put together.  So here are my tips for having great looking s’mores bars in addition to their fantastic taste!

  • Cool: Let the bars cool completely before cutting into them. (I recommend chilling in the refrigerator overnight) Otherwise, you will have a hot mess of marshmallow fluff and chocolate.  Delicious, but not so pretty.
  • Parchment Paper: After the bars have cooled, using the edge of the parchment paper lift the bars out of the baking dish.  Then, cut into small squares.
  • Store: Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-5 days.
