Grill Inspiration

This post is dedicated to today – Friday. A day for wrapping up the work week and contemplating all of the chores I have neglected things you’re going to grill over the weekend.

Autumn Arugula Salad with Roasted Butternut and Chickpeas

  The mornings are getting chilly and pumpkins are hitting the shelves at the local farmer’s market and grocery stores. To my husband, this weather change means that it’s hunting season and football season. To me, however, the leaves falling means one thing: it’s time to start cooking all things squash. This weekend, we hosted the […]
