Where I live in Upstate New York, grilling year round is absolutely a thing. Sometimes it involves snow boots, but we're used to such extremes.
However, what feels like an adventure in January is much more of a leisure activty come spring and summer when the grill all but replaces our kitchen.
Of course we love grilling everything from beer butt chicken to veggies to grilled pizza, but sometimes we like to shake it up with something new.
Did you know that in addition to grilling burgers and barbecue chicken you can also grill meatballs?! It's true!
So as an ode to the backyard grill, consider this a love letter of sorts - a collection of easy grilling recipes you should absolutely try sometime soon.

Grilled Stuffed Zucchini with Shrimp Recipe
Making zucchini on the grill is a regular thing for us. It's part of why we grow our own every year! This grilled zucchini recipe takes things to a whole new level though. These zucchini boats are first grilled and then packed with a bright and zesty lemon basil cauliflower rice before then being topped with smokey, spicy grilled shrimp.

Miso Glazed Burger Recipe
Make note, these spicy miso glazed burgers aren't your average burger. And nothing against the average burger, but you might have to break up with your old patty after you try this one. Topped with Asian cucumber pickles and slathered with a rich miso glaze, this twist on a thick and juicy burger is immensely savory and totally memorable. Time to fire up the grill!
Grilled Lemon Kale Ricotta Flatbread Recipe
I'll never not be a fan of homemade pizza made on the grill, so let's get that right out of the way. Make it a slightly crispy flatbread pizza topped with fresh ricotta and kale (yes, kale) and I'll be first in line for my share. The lemon ricotta and kale combination is bright, light and fresh. The kale crisps up on the grill resulting in a pizza that is crispy yet creamy and so so good.
Grilled Cilantro Lime Beef Skewers
Ok, so skewers made on the grilled aren't really anything new. However, these cilantro lime beef skewers served alongside a jalapeño avocado dipping sauce aren't your average skewer. At the same time they are so simple to make with an easy marinade, loads of fresh lime juice and that spicy, creamy dipping sauce you'll want to put on everything.
