Dry-Rub Grilled Wings

Father’s Day weekend = BBQ, BBQ, BBQ!

When I think of wings I naturally think of the fried and unhealthy variation from my good ‘ol college days, but that doesn’t always have to be the case! 

 

This week for Healthy Food Friday with American Express, let’s transform this wing party into a guilt-free one! These wings are flavor-packed and grilled to perfection. Plus, they are easy breezy! Perfect for anyone on grill duty this weekend.

 

You’re welcome, Dad!

Maple Glazed Salmon

I am so excited to share this Maple Glazed Salmon recipe. It is hands down one of my new favorite ways to prepare salmon. I love the layer of goodness it coats on the top of the fish, and the flavor it brings.

A few months back  we ate dinner at Mike’s parent’s house. His mom made a delicious salmon dish, and she mentioned it using brown sugar and maple syrup, and having a rub on it. Brilliant. I instantly knew it needed some adaptation! 

So. Good.
