{Giveaway} Jerk Chicken with Grilled Pineapple Salsa

I have been in full on grilling mode recently. I can’t seem to get enough of recipes made on the grill! So as the end of summer continues to creep closer, I am trying to get in all of the grilling I can. As much as I would love to grill in the colder months, I’m a wimp and know I just won’t stand out in the cold.     I’ve used indoor counter top grills in the past and really wasn’t thrilled with the cooking results — it didn’t seem to heat up enough to get proper grill marks, all of the juices would flow out of the grill making for a very dry protein, and I’d always under or overcook the meat.     So when I was contacted to test out the T-fal OptiGrill as part of T-fal’s OptiGrill Blogger Bash, I had some reservations about if this grill would really live up to expectations.

Blueberry Breakfast Bars

I have a coworker who absolutely loves blueberries. She is retiring this week, and I wanted to make her a blueberry treat before she left. I adapted this recipe for Blueberry Breakfast Bars on The Kitchn, with the original recipe coming from the Whole Grain Mornings cookbook by Megan Gordon. My version uses quite a bit of substitutes and including using sprouted spelt flour instead of whole wheat flour because I could not find my whole wheat flour when I went to make these (I guess I need to clean out my pantry!) I also have more blueberry filling in my version, and used a different sized pan. Be sure to check out the original version on the kitchn to see if you prefer their method! Ingredients: Blueberry filling: 4 cups fresh blueberries, divided 1/4 cup natural cane sugar 3 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract the juice and zest of 1 lemon 1 tablespoon water Crust: 1 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup original wheat germ 3/4 cup sliced raw almonds 1/4 cup raw sesame seeds 1 cup sprouted spelt flourĀ (or whole wheat flour) 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon kosher salt … Continue reading
