Quick Tip on Grilling: Non-Stick Grill Grids!

Instead of our usual Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial, today The Dads’ wanted to share with you one of their Quick Tips for Grilling!

At last, Spring is in the air! The flowers are blooming and the birds are chirping! And that means, its time for grilling and outside eating! 

Have you ever tried to grill vegetables or shrimp only to have them fall between the grates? Well we found the perfect (and most stylish) solution: Non-Stick Grill Grids from Sur La Table!

These are a must try if you haven’t already. We love them, as they are not only functional but also a beautiful addition to the grill. 

Dave demonstrates in his love for the product in this Quick Tip, one minute video below:

Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial: Simple Syrup

We’re back! After some relaxing in Key West, we are very excited to share with you this week’s Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial: How to make Simple Syrup. Spring is in the air and we are ready for cocktails! Simple Syrup is an ingredient in so many of our favorites, but we can’t figure out why so many people buy it in the store.  Not only is it very inexpensive and quick to make, simple syrup can be stored easily in your fridge. And the best part? You will only need equal parts of sugar and water! Simply heat on the stove until the sugar has dissolved, then store in a Mason jar.  Watch the video below and you will be making mint juleps and mojitos in no time!

Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial: Roasted Garlic

We love roasted garlic! It’s super easy and healthy! So why not make some tonight? In fact, why roast just one knob? Why not two or three? That’s what we do!

For this week’s Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial video, Dave demonstrates how to roast your garlic- The Dads’ way!

Roasted garlic is great for garlic bread, garlic mashed potatoes, anti-pasta and so much more! When we took ours out of the oven, we couldn’t help but take a clove out of the knob and smear it onto a piece of olive bread. Delish!!!!

In our photo below, you can see our roasted garlic after having been roasted in the oven for a full hour at 350 degrees. Look how easily a single clove pulls out of the knob. If you need the entire knob, simply squeeze from the bottom and push all the cloves out at the same time.

Roasted Garlic, fresh out of the oven!

Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial: How to french a Rack of Lamb

This Tuesday’s Two Minute Tutorial is all about how to french a rack of lamb. And we’re not talking about kissing a cut of meat!

Frenching is removing the membrane between the rib bones of the lamb. The result are those fancy, restaurant-style, lollypop lambchops. And it is so much easier than you might think! This is one of those tricks that can turn a simple meal into a meal fit for a queen!

We shared the video on how to cook a rack of lamb yesterday, but this tip is a go-to when you need to cook to impress!
