One of our absolute FAVORITE things to do in the summertime is grill out!

A few months ago, we bought this little Grill Master baby right here.

Isn’t she a beauty?

My husband and I love grilling corn, hot dogs and brats… but my absolute favorite is:

Honey Soy Chicken Drumsticks


  • 6-8 chicken drumsticks (approx. 2 lbs.)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon of white pepper
  • 1/4 cup of white wine


    1. Combine the soy sauce, honey, onion, garlic, ginger, white pepper and white wine in a saucepan over low heat.
    2. Score defrosted chicken drumsticks in 1 inch intervals.
    3. Place sauce and chicken drumsticks in a plastic bag, place in refrigerator and marinate for 1 hour.
    4. Remove the chicken drumsticks from bag and grill until chicken is tender and juices run clear.  (Use your discretion on the timing here, I’d say probably 20 minutes or so?)
    5. And lastly, ENJOY! πŸ™‚

What’s on your grill?

    I don’t eat that kind of food. I don’t like meat so much and I’m staying vegetarian as long as I can (I wish forever).

    One of my fav things about summer is grilling! I love the taste of grilled hot dogs and chicken. My mom makes a lot of Carne Asada and we make Korean short ribs. MmmmmM

    The number one thing on my grill is pizza. It’s by far my favorite grilled item. And so easy and fast too. I’m a bit sad I had to leave my grill behind in NJ — there’s so many fun things I could make on it here in CA.

    This recipe looks delicious. One of the things I missed most this summer since moving to our place in the city was the ability to BBQ whenever we wanted. It was my only request when we went down to visit my parents that we had a BBQ.
