We own a gas grill, and it has its own merits. It's perfect for when you want to grill a quick burger or chicken kebabs. However, when it comes to flavor-- to us, nothing beats the flavor of charcoal and/or wood chips.
Wait. I take that back--just a little. The very best barbecue, in our opinion, is with a fire pit and real wood. But, that's for the reaaaaaaaaaaally serious pit-masters. So, we have been working on learning ways to work with charcoal and wood chips to make our faves--like brisket, and baby back ribs, to name a few.

We'll be traveling to Bavaria, Austria and Switzerland in October. So, this summer, we're working on giving out master bedroom a facelift. My husband still works, but I'm spending my free time doing some much needed deep cleaning and de-cluttering. It's almost finished, but it's been very time-consuming. Also, I haven't been working on savory recipes as much. Instead, I've been using Blue Apron to ship ingredients and recipes to make sure that Craig and I are eating healthy and delicious meals. I'll talk more about Blue Apron, at a later time. I will say that having three meals, a week, that are quick, flavorful and easy to make has been a blessing.
Raspberry Lemon Shortbread Tart. But, then, I remembered that it has been a while since I've baked this super easy Raspberry Buttermilk Cake-- only I used our home grown Olallieberries.
