It is time to get your home ready for summer and the grill fired up by making these Grilled Honey Chipotle Wings. Sweet with a little heat plus a great grilled flavor your family will love!
Memorial Day is right around the corner and summer is quickly on its way. Are you ready to kick off the summer season?
Summer at my house means grilling and chilling outdoors with family and friends. But to get ready you need to make sure you have all the supplies on hand to keep your grill clean, along with the deck and patio.
You will also want to have a cooler with cold drinks and snacks. Don’t forget the plastic cups and make sure you have plenty of paper towels to clean up those accidental spills.
