Summer's here and despite all the uncertainties, life goes on. And so do celebrations! OK, granted.

A Seaside Inspired Tablescape and 3 BBQ Recipes

A Seaside Inspired Tablescape and 3 BBQ Recipes

Summer rhymes with BBQ and eating outdoors, so we've been cooking most of our evening meals on the BBQ this summer. It's a bliss not to have the oven on inside the house, and somehow, food just tastes so much better al-fresco, don't you think? So a few weeks ago, we decide on a baked version of the classic shrimp boil. But because it's cooked on a sheet pan on the barbecue...we called it BBQ shrimp.
