With the 4th of July around the corner, I’ve been looking around for some unique grilled vegetable recipes. So often we just go to grilled zucchini and squash or veggie kabobs, but there are some really different ways to prepare and serve grilled veggies out there. Here were some that I’ve either tried or definitely want to try!

Above: Portobello + Peach Burger

I LOVE portobello burgers and we have been grilling them for years, but until a couple of weeks ago when we had dinner at a friends and she made grilled portobello’s, I some how totally missed how important it is to let the mushrooms marinate before you grill them. It makes a huge difference in the level of flavor and definitely not a step to skip. This recipe suggest delicious grilled peach slices and homemade guacamole as toppings, yum!

Grilled Artichokes with Yogurt-Dill Dipping Sauce

Once I had artichokes grilled, in my opinion, it’s the only way to eat them. The slight char and grilled flavor adds so much and I love them paired with a tangy yogurt dipping sauce. It’s also a lot healthy than the traditional butter sauce and in my opinion better. I haven’t tried this specific recipe using dill, I normally add lemon juice, lemon zest and chopped capers to my yogurt sauce and it’s so good!

Grilled Cabbage Wedges with Spicy Lime Dressing

Cabbage is definitely not something I’ve thought of to grill before but this recipe looks amazing. I really like cabbage and can imagine the grill adds a lot of good flavor and keeps the cabbage just the right consistency, cooking it but not causing it to become to soft and soggy. I definitely want to give this one a try.

Whether you are looking for a more informal self-help type book or just want a good laugh here are a few of my favorite picks for summer reading.

It’s definitely been a while since I’ve done a Baby Style post and earlier this week when we took the pictures, I remembered why. Trying to get a toddler to cooperate while you take their picture is quite the challenge. Then, add to it being almost 8 months pregnant and outside in Atlanta’s summer heat and you’ve got a fun task ahead ;). But we did it! Porter is 20 months now and becoming quite opinionated with everything. It’s getting more and more fun (and frustrating at times) to dress her as she’s starting to have preferences of what she does Read more…
