YOU GUYS! I woke up this morning to walk Jasper, and I NEEDED A SWEATER! Clearly, I cannot contain my excitement. When summer begins to fade and the autumn breeze rolls through our backyard, I start craving the grill!

Now, let’s be clear. I do my best to steer clear of the grill and leave my husband to the “meaty part.” But I’ve found a few side dishes to sharpen my cooking knives on and enhance my amateur chef status! If you’re preparing for a season of fall gatherings like we are, try out a few of these simple grilling recipes – all of which are sure to impress! (Click on the images for a direct link to the recipe!)

In addition to the recipes below, consider adding a few pieces to your pantry. A grill basket allows for easy cooking of mixed vegetables (without all the prep work!) Skewers make for both simple cooking and beautiful presentation – all in one! Last but not least, invest in a spectacular set of tongs. When it comes to flipping and shifting your food on the grill, you’ll be so glad you have the good stuff!

Enjoy the fresh air, and get to grillin’!
