There’s nothing I love more than firing up the grill for dinner on warm summer nights and weekend BBQ’s!

This weekend we put our first offer in on a house (eeeeek!) It’s so exciting and terrifying at the same time. This house needs A LOT of work, so I’ve been putting some serious spreadsheet skills to use creating a list of all the work that needs to be done, a timeline for the renovation and budgeting.

Even though it seems totally unnecessary, one of the things at the top of my list is an outdoor patio addition. I love entertaining, especially outdoors in San Diego, so this is really important to me! After living in an apartment for almost a year without having a space to entertain outside (or really inside for that matter!) I can’t wait to get in the new house (fingers crossed!) and fire up the grill for that first outdoor BBQ!

Bacon Wrapped Teriyaki Chicken Skewers

Chicken & peppers are wrapped in bacon, grilled & basted with a homemade teriyaki sauce in this simple, scrumptious recipe for Teriyaki Chicken Skewers!

Bacon Wrapped Teriyaki Chicken Skewer Recipe

Three weeks ago, I was a judge at San Diego’s Bacon & Barrels Festival for the second year in a row. (I know, I know, my job does NOT SUCK! 😉 )

This years highlight for me was a Bacon Wrapped Teriyaki Chicken Skewer from Corbin’s Q, a local San Diego BBQ catering company.

Since they don’t currently operate a restaurant in San Diego, I had to come home and recreate their delicious skewers so I could get another taste of the goodness!

Secret confession: I’m also always looking for any excuse to make my super simple, super delicious 10 minute teriyaki sauce recipe 😉

  4. Creating Recipe in the Kitchen
  5. Photographing Recipe
  6. Blogging About Recipe

For this recipe, I skipped straight to #4!

Key Lime Grilled Chicken Taco Skewers

Key Lime Grilled Chicken Taco Skewers

Last week my friend Carla brought me a giant bag of key limes from the tree at her house. Giant bag of key limes, what oh what would I do with all of these little gems!

Obviously my first thought was key lime pie, cheesecake or ice cream, but I wanted to do something different than dessert. That’s when I got thinking about one of my most popular Little Leopard Book recipes ever, Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita Skewers.
