Last summer, while we were building our new house, our grill served as my temporary stove. Among the recipes I experimented with was this crispy thin-crust pizza. It met with such approval, guests were eager to try it in their own backyards.
Grilled Chicken Over Spinach is shared by Michelle Krzmarzick of Torrance, California. "With two young children to keep me busy, it's essential to have a few 'ready-in-minutes' she confides. "This is a recipe I've pieced together and added my own touches to. It really satisfies my family."
"The marinade that seasons these summery skewers has a robust flavor that friends and family love," relates Cheryl Arnold of Lake Zurich, Illinois. They're a breeze to marinate ahead of time, then assemble before grilling.
"I put this combination together one day when trying to serve a side dish other than mushrooms in butter," recalls Susan Jesson of Oro Station, Ontario. "Everyone loves this pleasantly seasoned medley and asks for the recipe."
We love these full-flavored kabobs and fix them often, even in winter. A sweet sauce is used to baste and later serve alongside the colorful combination of sausage, bacon, shrimp, vegetables and pineapple. —Gloria Warczak, Cedarburg, Wisconsin
Living on this beautiful Canadian island, we often grill out, so we can eat while enjoying the scenery. This tempting veggie dish is the perfect accompaniment to any barbecue fare. To make the recipe even more satisfying, I often use my homegrown vegetables an herbs in the mix.
These classic kabobs are a hearty way to use up your garden harvest. At our house, everyone fixes their own skewers for an all-in-one dinner. I sometimes substitute venison for beef.

Juicy chicken, cherry tomatoes, whole mushrooms and sweet peppers make these skewers filling. But it's the fresh garlic, chili powder, cumin and cayenne pepper that give them their zesty kick.
