We made a pact with each other that we will try to use the grill at least 3-4 times a week. We love grilling because it is SO easy and convenient and you can cook so much at once! Plus, it just tastes like summer any time you use the grill. It also reminds of us summer barbecues and being with family and friends.

Our favorite parts of summer are spending the big holidays like Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, and most importantly, our birthday outdoors with our family and friends by the pool and grilling out. We usually try to stick to healthy, but easy recipes that donā€™t take hours of preparation. Who wants to be the one cooking when everyone else is outside enjoying the sunshine!
Coffee and Honey Barbecue Ribs with KC Masterpiece | adoubledose.comCoffee and Honey Barbecue Ribs with KC Masterpiece | adoubledose.comWe love grilling pretty much anything, but once in awhile, we will grill some ribs and get really messy šŸ˜‰ I just love eating meat off of bones! I know some people have a real issue with people munching on bones, but Sam and I just love it, haha.
Coffee and Honey Barbecue Ribs with KC Masterpiece | adoubledose.comThis past weekend, we made some barbecue baby-back ribs using KC MasterpieceĀ® BBQ Sauce & Dry Rub. What is so neat about this dry mix is that you can customize it so many ways! All you have to do is add any type of liquid to the dry rub such as coffee, like we did, or fruit juice like pineapple juice, or even a summery beer. Two packets make 16 oz of BBQ sauce, so thereā€™s plenty to go around.
Coffee and Honey Barbecue Ribs with KC Masterpiece | adoubledose.com Coffee and Honey Barbecue Ribs with KC Masterpiece | adoubledose.comYou can use it to make a barbecue sauce, a dip for veggies or chicken, a marinade for shrimp or meat, or even just use the dry rub directly on meat before grilling.

Southwestern Chopped Salad with Crockpot Beef - this mexican-inspired salad is loaded with protein, fresh veggies, and fiber | adoubledose.comBesides Mediterranean food, I could eat a salad every single day. I will be honest, though. If you’ve seen my salads on snapchat {alexis.belbel}, you’ll know that mine don’t look this pretty. They are pretty much thrown on a plate because I am almost alway in a rush and H A N G R Y! Shocker, right? This salad, though, is so easy to make and requires almost no work if you make the meat ahead of time!

If you haven’t prepared chicken or meat in the crockpot, it is a game changer. All you have to do is literally put the meat in, spices, and water, and you’re done. After 5-6 hours, you have all your protein prepped and ready for the week. I used to make chicken in there every week for all of my meals for work when I worked my corporate job at EY and it was so easy. Of course, I got so sick of it, but I can always go for meat! You could also add fresh lime juice or salsa to bring out the flavor even more.

For the greens, I used Organicgirl’s Sweet Pea mix, which is a blend of baby greens and sweet pea shoots. The sweet pea adds a little bit of sweetness to it, but not overwhelming that it’s weird to combine with vegetables, if that makes sense?
