  • Grilled Lemon Oregano Chicken & Shrimp Skewers: This is a delicious and simple recipe you can use with chicken or shrimp. It comes from Yummy Healthy Easy. You’ll need chicken breasts, large shrimp, lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, and wooden skewers.

  • Brazilian Grilled Pineapple: As an appetizer or a dessert, this blend of pineapple slices, brown sugar, and cinnamon is the perfect addition to a barbeque. This is the description from "Favorite at a Brazilian steakhouse in Dallas. Not sure if this is the exact recipe they use but it tastes very close. Great side for kabobs and steak."

  • Maple Glazed Bacon Wrapped Roasted Carrots: Every descriptor in the title of this recipe has us pulling out the grocery list! Any skeptic of carrots will fall for this savory side. You’ll get a journey of complementary and juxtaposing tastes and textures with the crispy bacon and tender carrots wrapped nicely together. With just three ingredients (and any seasoning you wish to top it with), this luxury side will look like it’s straight from a five-star restaurant.

  • Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream: For a delicious dessert, try out these soft and warm grilled peaches. This recipe comes from What’s Gaby Cooking.
