Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over high heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until cooked through, about 4-5 minutes.

  2. Add the barbeque sauce, mustard, molasses and bourbon to the onion mixture. Bring to a simmer and let simmer until sauce thickens, about 10 – 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  3. Season the chicken drumsticks liberally with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  4. Prepare grill for medium heat. Grill drumsticks until skin is crisp and juices run clear, turning to cook on all sides, about 20 – 30 minutes.

  5. Transfer about ½ of barbeque sauce to a bowl and reserve. Brush drumsticks with remaining sauce and cook until glaze forms, about another 3-4 minutes longer.

  6. Remove from grill and serve immediately or at room temperature along with the reserved sauce.


Recipe Notes

You could make from-scratch BBQ sauce, but why bother when you can add just a few ingredients to your favorite bottled version and get a delicious homemade-tasting result? The secret ingredients? Onion, garlic, mustard, molasses and bourbon! We love this recipe on chicken drumsticks.

Instructions
  1. Prepare grill for medium heat.

  2. Season turkey with salt and pepper and form into 2 two-inch patties. Place a scant tablespoon of cheese in the middle of one patty and top with the other. Gently press the edges of the patty together to create a seal. Repeat with the rest of the ground turkey to make 12 burgers.

  3. Grill burgers until cooked through, approximately 5 minutes per side.

  4. Place on buns and serve immediately.


Recipe Notes

Filling a turkey burger with cheese instead of placing the cheese on top is a great way to keep the burger juicy and keep the cheese from burning! We love this recipe with Monterey Jack cheese but you could use any cheese you like.

Instructions
  1. Add the lemon and sugar to a large pot of water and bring to a boil.

  2. Add the corn and cook until just done, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from boiling water and cool in the ice bath to stop the cooking process. Remove from ice bath. Cut the corn from the ears and place in a large mixing bowl.

  3. When cool, add the grape tomatoes, green pepper, and red onion to the corn. Add the blue cheese, fresh thyme, olive oil and red wine. Toss to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.


Recipe Notes

Instead of serving plain corn on the cob, make a great salad with the kernels by combining them with tomatoes, blue cheese, thyme, green pepper and red onion. A quick dressing of olive oil and red wine vinegar really makes the summery flavors come to life.
