It's difficult to toss around superlatives when it comes to food. Too many delicious dishes to consider. But I feel confident in saying that food that has been grilled is among the best. Burgers, ribs, chicken, fish, fruits, vegetables, you name it. There's just something unique about the charring of the food's exterior, the sizzle of searing, that unmistakable smoky flavor, the way the high heat brings out the gentle sweetness in an otherwise savory food.
Summertime grilling deserves a special kind of attention. Since it so often occurs at cookouts, beach vacations, gatherings of family and friends, the meals that emerge from those blackened grates are that much more meaningful. They're a shared experience. Memories made not only around the taste of those thick juicy burgers, but around the company you grilled them with.
With the Fourth of July in sight, it's time to wrangle some grillable recipes. Ones that will make the holiday as delicious as it is fun. This week, the blogworld has been abuzz with summery fare. Everything from pork to pizza to peaches. Here are a few tasty recipes to consider when planning your weekend festivities!
