Veggie Grilling Basics

This morning we went back to the basics! Chef Sara Schoenberger from Whole Foods Market joined David in the kitchen to provide some helpful “do’s and don’ts” of grilling fruits and vegetables. Her suggestions?

  • DO get more flavor from the flames. Cutting veggies into slices provide more surface area on the grill, which gives more golden-brown goodness.
  • DO give ‘em some space. As you remove veggies from the grill, spread them out on a large baking sheet instead of stacking them, which can cause them to steam and get soggy.
  • DON’T “flip out.” Once it has hit the grill, handle your food as little as possible. Flipping or turning too soon can result in sticking.

 

Also, try grilling some halved peaches or pineapple rings – these make great salad toppers and desserts. Just drizzle with balsamic vinegar or sprinkle with cinnamon and your guests will be begging for seconds!

Dresses That Won’t Crash a Wedding

Wedding season has officially started and with so many rules: Casual, Black-tie, Daytime, Evening, Weekends, etc. it’s hard to know which outfit is appropriate. Here to clear up the confusion was Danielle Mason, manager of Dress Barn.

One of her tips? If the invitation doesn’t specify, look at the invitation itself! If the invitation seems formal, your attire should match.
