We can’t have a summer season without talking about the most iconic cooking method of the season: grilling. This week, we walk you through the numerous ways that the grill can make life as the family cook easier, cooler, and more delicious. And also how it will help you make the most delicious homemade pizza. Just saying.

We understand that getting to the grill can be full of logistical challenges (where to put the grill, how to prep food properly, etc), but here’s the truth: getting to know your grill can make summer cooking easier and more enjoyable. Because any time you can refrain from turning on the oven in July, you win big.

This week, we provide a step-by-step guide to grilling with our favorite tips and tricks, including ways that you can make dessert on the grill.

Yes, dessert!

Some highlights that we go over include:

We’re all anticipating the arrival of Stacie’s second cookbook all about chicken dinners, but while we wait, Stacie is dropping some knowledge bombs about marinades, a classic grilling step.

Months of research led to a simple, unexpected conclusion. Listen, because you may be surprised!

Spawned Podcast: a parenting podcast with Kristen and Liz of Cool Mom Picks | Didn't I Just Feed You

Your Next Listen

We may be biased because we know Liz and Kristen in person (and love them!), but Spawned was named a top podcast by The Washington Post, Mental Floss, Business Insider, and Fatherly, so we’re in good company!

Liz Gumbinner and Kristen Chase of CoolMomPicks.com are parents to six kids between them. They’ve got a microphone and more than the two minutes the Today Show gives them, and lucky for us, aren’t afraid to use them. Because they are wickedly funny too.

Every week, you can join them (and some awesome celebrity guests) for candid parenting culture discussions, (mostly) non-judgy tips, and a good dose of that humor we were talking about.
