    Haha! Congrats on being recognized! I haven’t washed my hair in three days so I’d probably be mortified if someone recognized me.

    I’m so effing ready for grillin’ weather. It’s still absurdly cold here and it’s really demoralizing. =)

      Oh I had a huge zit and was having a bad hair day. It was definitely not what I’d call “my shining moment.” Of course. At least I wasn’t in sweat pants….

    Hi! It was awesome to see you in the building. I was *starstruck*! I know it was probably weird to be accosted by adoring fans while at work. Keep up the great bloggin’. I’ve lost 80 lbs so far and your blog always motivates me to continue on this journey.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      It was nice to meet you Rachel! And your friend. I was taken aback at the whole thing and didn’t know what to say. But congratulations on losing 80 pounds. That is so great. I’m glad my blog is helping you!!

      Have you tried growing your own?

    We are FINALLY getting to some grilling-appropriate weather!! By Monday, we’ll be in the 70’s, and I can’t wait. Your glazed chicken looks fabulous. We will definitely need to try this recipe.

    Yum I love grilling! especially chicken, and I’m always looking for a recipe to flavor the meat without the store bought sauces that have a lot of sugar and sodium in them, this sound simple and delish!!!

      I much prefer to make my own marinades or glazes. I agree, the store bought stuff usually has a bunch of extra junk in it.

    Chicken thighs are delicious! I’m all about the dark meat.

      Me too. It just tastes better!

    I’ve got to try eggshells in my garden. We don’t get slugs often unless we have a lot of rain at one time. Thanks for the tip!

    I love marinated meats also. For me, putting the chicken or meat in the marinade right after I bring it home works best. I then freeze the packages of meat with marinade and when I’m ready to cook them I just take them out of the freezer the night before, let them defrost overnight in the fridge and then cook them. The marinade has plenty of time to soak in and make great tasting meat!

    Yay for grilling season!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      What a FANTASTIC idea!! I’m totally doing this.

    I heard that the weather has been nice in Portland recently! You’ve got me looking forward to summer, for those grills look incredible!

    I honestly can’t wait, thanks for sharing, and I hope you continue to have fantastic weather, Lisa!

      I am looking forward to summer, too. It looks the rain is returning this week. 🙁

    I used a glaze very similar to this, but I think it also had some cayenne in it. I put it on grilled eggplant. Came out awesome.

      That sounds really good! Love the idea of grilled eggplant.

    This looks amazing. I wonder if it would be much different with agave nectar?

      I think agave would work just as well. I often substitute honey with agave in a lot of recipes I try.
