Radio Smart Talk for Thursday, May 23:
For many families, the grill has become an outdoor oven or stove. For some, it would take a major snowstorm to keep the grill from being used to make dinner. They see the grill as an all-year-round part of mealtime.
For most though, the grill is used in warmer weather and even for the majority of those people, Memorial Day weekend may be the first time all year they wheel out the grill. Let's face it -- the grill excites those who see it as an instrument of summer and the outdoor fun that goes along with it.
Thursday's Radio Smart Talk leads into the holiday weekend with our traditional grilling tips and recipes program. Chef Donna Marie Desfor, owner of There's a Chef in My Kitchen, appears on the show with suggestions and ideas for outdoor cooking.
Whether you're looking for a way to spice up the traditional grilling fare of hot dogs, hamburgers or chicken or thinking about something different on the grill, Chef Desfor always gets creative.
We'd like to hear your recipes for the grill too. List them below and enjoy your holiday weekend!
