Avocado and Grilled Pineapple Eggrolls

Before we start talking about the insanity of what almost amounts to deep-fried guacamole, let’s talk about safety. Because there are some things you shouldn’t do on a school night. Like drinking most of a bottle of wine all by yourself. And then come the things that you shouldn’t do after drinking most of a [...]

Spicy Salmon and Grilled Pineapple Wrap

I have lost track of the number of pineapples we’ve grilled in the last two months. But that number shot up last week when they were .99 each. Because you know me and how I love to hoard a good produce sale. If you’ve never grilled a pineapple, let me tell you what you’re missing [...]

Grilled Pineapple Margarita

Grilled Pineapple Margarita

Grilled pineapple is currently my very, very favorite thing on the planet. ‘Cause Lord knows, the soccer-hockey-basketball trifecta of worthless sports sure as hell isn’t.

Barbecue Chicken & Grilled Pineapple Nachos

I have been on a major grilled pineapple kick lately. Like, mayjah. Guacamole, burgers, margaritas, and of course – those nachos.

Pineapple-Marinated Beef Fajitas

It’s open-windows during the day, almost-cool-enough-to-consider-a-light-cardigan over a tank top at night. These next few weeks? [...]

Fish Tacos with Cantaloupe-Pineapple Salsa

Back when we were dating, Jason would to drag me to an Astros games a few times a month. He lucked out – he found a girl who loved sports (really, just football) and beer (mostly margaritas) and would listen to three hours of pitching analysis and commentary.

Pineapple Margaritas

Pineapple Margarita

When we were dating, we took our first “together” trip together to Keystone, Colorado. My future husband (I was pretty certain that I had it in the bag by then) grew up skiing. Me? I grew up in Texas. In a classic – and somewhat predictable – display of grace and coordination, I ended up [...]
