I was literally stopped in my tracks when I came across this recipe on Pink-Parsley. The name alone made me pause, then I saw the pictures of those colorful, grilled skewers of juicy, glazed pork.

So when I was asking him what some of his favorite game day foods were we started chatting and he mentioned something about the infamous meatball sub. But when you think of game eats, a big sub with a healthy dose of marinara isn't really ideal for a tailgate when you're standing around and holding a plate.

While s'more in their classic form are probably, by far my favorite I do love making s'mores inspired creations in the comfort of my kitchen. Dreaming up different s'more concoctions never gets old.
Now I've made s'mores brownies in the past; a graham cracker crust, layer of brownies and topped with marshmallows. Those were good and were a huge hit, but I'd have to say those have nothing on these bites.

These little crackers are so simple. So easy to make and so dad-gum good. These little crackers make my mouth happy.

Sometimes, however, a big board of cheese, crackers and meat just really isn't in the equation. But, layering those ingredients on a skewer and making them an easy to grab snack that only requires one hand is perfection.

This summer has been a summer of outdoor cooking for us. We've used the smoker and smoked I don't know how many times and we've also fired up the grill more times than I can count. I've grilled the norm; steaks, burgers, brats, and dogs. I've also ventured out to the garden snatched up some peppers and tomatoes and thrown those on the grill to make some pretty awesome dips and sauces.
Like with roasting, broiling and baking; grilling vegetables adds a whole other depth of flavor to a dish. It takes those delicious, refreshing veggies and really enhances the flavor. Which is the case with this dip.
The dip. Um, where do I start?

The Hawaiian chicken sandwich from Back Yard Burger was one of my favorite sandwiches ever. There's not a lot to it; a sweet and salty marinated grilled chicken breast, cheese, pineapple and a leaf of lettuce. That's it. But it's soooo stinkin' good.
Every single time I went to Back Yard I'd get that sandwich. Kind of ironic since it's a burger place and I think I may have gotten a burger once or twice the whole time it was open. Anywho; I loved this sandwich but I didn't love the dent it put in my wallet. It was pricy. So, I didn't have my beloved chicken sandwich nearly as much as I'd like. But every time I did drive thru, it was guaranteed I would get that delicious chicken sandwich.
