The classic burger, seasoned just right, is a fabulous treat. I like to serve my American burger on a grilled onion bun, with American cheese, juicy tomato, some crisp lettuce, mayonnaise, and mustard. No ketchup on my burger! Of course, you can top yours with just about anything.

This super easy and delicious marinade is perfect on lots of grilled foods, but I like it best on pork chops. The savory and spicy marinade makes the meat so tender and adds wonderful flavor. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

This simple recipe is the perfect accompaniment to any grilled meat, whether it's chicken, pork, salmon, or steak. You can use any kind of cheese, but I think that Parmesan has the most robust flavor.

Quesadillas are easy and fun to cook on the grill. You can make any stovetop quesadilla recipe into a grilled recipe. Just cook on the grill instead of the stove! It's important to have a really big spatula to turn the quesadillas. Or you can slide them onto a thin cookie sheet, then turn them, then slide them back onto the grill.
