Smoky Grilled Chicken

Carla DiTondo - Thursday, June 22, 2017

This is a great recipe for a back yard barbecue. The sauce is enough for more than one chicken, so you can easily fill the grill with enough chicken to feed a crowd. more

Grilled Hawaiian BBQ Chicken (Grilled in foil packets)

Carla DiTondo - Thursday, June 15, 2017

These foil packets of chicken, pineapple and summer vegetables will become one of your grilling favorites. I would double the recipe for 8 servings just in case the aroma coming from the grill brings a neighbor or two over. more

Carla DiTondo - Thursday, June 08, 2017

Spiced Chicken with Melon Salsa

Carla DiTondo - Sunday, May 21, 2017

Fire up the grill! The weather is going to be perfect for cooking outside now. The little heat from the crushed red pepper flakes on the chicken is cooled down with a refreshing melon salsa. You might want to keep this one to use over and over again this summer. more

Peach Cobbler Muffins

BBQ Pork Spare Ribs

Carla DiTondo - Thursday, April 27, 2017

Everyone has a favorite rib recipe, and we think this one is worth a try! This recipe asks that you allow your seasoned ribs to refrigerate overnight, so that all of the delicious flavors have time to penetrate into the meat! more

Chicken & Asiago Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Spinach

Carla DiTondo - Friday, April 21, 2017

Let this be the day that we build someone up. Tell someone that they are doing a terrific job, or even a simple hello and smile to a stranger. It can make someone's day. We are all so busy that we forget to just be kind and considerate to others some days. Not today! Let's be thoughtful of our actions towards others! more
