About this Sister Eden Short
You can grill so much more than meat and still have a great cookout that your guests will enjoy.
We love to grill all year long. Below are links to John’s recipes for fun, simple, great tasting food for the grill. Most of these are pretty straight forward, but for some recipes that include chopped or sliced veggies, a grill basket can really help. Just Google “grill basket for vegetables” and you’ll find dozens of options!
Special thanks to our neighbors the Muellers for appearing in this video.
