Snow Cones are the quintessential summer treat. We’ve compiled a list of the essential tools for mimicking the sweet treats from your favorite roadside shack.
Let’s hear it for the boy! Let’s hear it for my man! Let’s hear it for Gygi’s Father’s Day Gift Guide.
Our goal for this year’s Gygi Grilling Gala was to prove that grilling is possible for every skill level, including the little guys! Connie and Candace held a workshop for the kids, where they made delicious grilled pizza.
Grilled pizzas are easy enough for everyone to make! With a little help, your kids can make them, too!
Using frozen rolls, the prep is simple and easy. But feel free to use any dough you prefer! We like using a roll size – it makes the perfect personal sized pizza. It is also easier to handle on the grill. But a larger pizza is totally possible, especially if you’re equipped with a pizza peel!
Once your dough is prepped, go crazy on the toppings! If you’re using vegetables, try having them partially cooked before grilling. The dough cooks quick, which doesn’t give much time for the vegetables to soften.
Another tip for traditional pizza or dessert pizza is to use some sort of sauce to keep your loose toppings in place (I’m looking at you, marshmallows!). A little sauce will keep your toppings from rolling around as your dough puffs while cooking.
Give grilled pizza a try for your next grilling adventure. Then let us know what your favorite combination was. We are always looking for pizza inspiration!
Slow and low cooking techniques require a large amount of time and commitment. They are worth every minute expended in their behalf, but few of us can afford them on a daily basis.
But your Traeger Grill need not sit idle during the weeknight bustle.
Kristin Andrus shared her favorite meals for the everyday chef. She is a trusted expert – she knows her way around a Traeger Grill! But she also knows the struggle of getting dinner on the table – she has six little mouths to feed!
Give these recipes a try this week!
The perfected, tender and juicy rotisserie-style chicken that makes grown men arm wrestle over the last piece.
Turn up the heat and turn down the carbs with these baked bites. Cauliflower is roasted, tossed with a homemade buffalo sauce, and paired with a creamy ranch dipping sauce.
For and easy side vegetable, top asparagus with Traeger Salmon Shake. It’s refreshingly zesty and makes grill roasted salmon taste delicious.
Roasted vegetables paired with leftover pulled pork make for legendary leftovers. Top with farm eggs ad shot of hot sauce and you’ve got a meal for any time of the day.
This crowd pleasing pairing is sure to top your list of favorites. Tender, reverse seared tri-tip is topped with zesty chimchurri, perfect for the everyday entree or the weekend get together.

We just finished our annual Grilling Gala. I’m pretty sure I still have a bit of tri-tip lodged in my molars.
The food was amazing. The instructors were intelligent. The weather was perfection. But most importantly, the interaction with our customers was fulfilling. We love sharing the day with you – meeting you in person, enjoying the moments as we all learn how to better use our equipment.
We strongly believe your kitchen should be stocked with essential tools. They make cooking, cleaning, and eating a more enjoyable process. One tool that serves a purpose in every task is a kitchen towel. The right linen can make all the difference. These three types of towels are efficient, durable, and beautiful – three qualities that make them essential! [Read more…]

It’s April. Happy spring cleaning!!!! Truth be told, I shudder at the thought. The sun’s out. It’s finally warm enough to step outside. The last thing I want to do is stay inside and clean. Plus, I’m kind of scared to see what is under my couch.

We are in full fledged spring cleaning mode over here. Of course we are starting with our favorite room of the house!! The kitchen!!! We love using simple and effective solutions, so we started with our favorite natural cleaners, baking soda and vinegar. Cleaning with baking soda and vinegar have long been used as safe alternatives to toxic chemicals. But we were shocked to learn that when they are used together, they are pretty much ineffective!!! What?!?! Read on to learn more…
