Ugh- not much time for traveling or partying this weekend. I know most people are grilling on this weekend to mark the

beginning of summer -and, well, May is National Barbecue Month.

Your LA2LChef is having a big moving sale – come by if you’re in So Cal. But I do have some great BBQ recipes you can revisit on my blog – like  Chicken with All South Barbecue Rub

and of course, some great beverages like my delicious Sangria, or a Wild Hibiscus Margarita


And while you have the grill fired up, might as well make this great Grilled Tomato Salsa

  1. I would rather beg on the street than move. I just hate it. So much stuff, no place to put it and everything in disarray. I admire you immensely. You’d be much happier entertaining. 🙂

  2. I cannot tell you how completely stressed I am moving, Maureen, but beg on the street- I don’t think so…

  4. Hey Gisele, I’m one of your fans when it comes to grilling. I remembered that I included your grilled rock cod with thai red curry sauce in one of my menu in the Wedding event that I organized. They really loved it and I just want to thank you for that.
