Grilled Cauliflower Steak

I'm running about 5 pounds over my "playing weight" this week from all of the Holiday refreshments, so I needed some healthy options for the grill.

Grilled Corn and Black Bean Salsa

We have entered the Summer months, where corn might as well be free.  I just go back from the store where you can now buy 12 ears for $3.  I don't even know how you can ship it that cheap, given the fact that I am in Florida.  My kids love "corn sticks" so we eat a LOT of corn on the cob during t...

Pesto Brussels Sprouts on the Grill
