Explore the Lighter Side of Grilling With Michelob ULTRA Light Cider

My body pays attention to two signals that summer is finally here: the smell of grilling and the sound of ice-cold drinks being pulled out of a cooler. When the temperature peaks, the only thing that really, truly cools me off is an icy beverage. Over many summers, I've tried countless drink options that didn't leave me satisfied—beer is too dry, wine is too high in liquor, and fruity cocktails contain way too much sugar for my taste. For years, I've searched for a light, cool drink that leaves me feeling refreshed. ...more

Chipotle Burgers with Cilantro-Lime Crema

As long-time friends, Juliana and I share a lot of our memories about food—like the “urban hikes” we used to take that always led directly to our favorite dim sum joint, the time we tried to cook nopales with soy sauce, or the gut-busting Thanksgiving feast we enjoyed, inexplicably, in the middle of a July heat wave. ...more

Beef and Chicken Kebab Wraps

Grilled Seafood Packets

I used to be very wary of anything that combined seafood with my grill. Oh sure, I had all the stuff that’s supposed to keep it from sticking to the grill like a magnet (yes, I have that grill basket shaped like a fish…somewhere…), but this particular recipe takes a different approach that makes it pretty dang foolproof. In this case, you are not putting your beautiful seafood right on the grill. Nope, you are putting them into nice little foil packets that steam your shrimp and scallops into perfection....more

Grilled Turkey Burgers with Yogurt-Based Sauce

Kid-Friendly Fish Tacos

Pumpkin-Chickpea Burgers

I don’t consider myself a chef, but I think I’m a pretty darn good cook. If you really stretch the term, you could even consider me a reluctant baker, but by no means can you consider me a griller. Aside from occasionally flipping a burger, I have only had one real grilling experience, and it resulted in a near “setting myself on fire” experience (who knew lighter fluid was so flammable?!). But it’s not as if I don’t want to learn. ...more
Love chickpeas, and the addition of the pumpkin gives it the burger a nice color not to mention ...more
