Cook onion in butter until tender then mix in apple juice, vinegar, honey, steak sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.

Boil enough water to cover sausages and add sausage to pot and cover. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes or until cooked through. During the last 5 minutes throw in the onion wedges. Cool for a bit then slice into 2 inch pieces. Heat grill and spray a grill pan with Pam.

Place all sausage, onions and mushrooms in a bowl and put in half the sauce and toss to coat. Place this mix in a hot grill basket and grill 10 minutes stirring frequently. Baste with the other ½ of the sauce and continue cooking 2 minutes longer.

Caramel Latte Pops

Even though I make these pops in a Zoku maker, you can make any of these recipes in traditional pop makers – each pop here is 2 oz. so adjust accordingly. And if you love pops like me, then do yourself a favor and get a Zoku :) Their recipes turn out fantastic pops – I often skinny them up a bit, but I mostly use their measurements and basic recipe and am always pleased with the results.

Asian Grilled Chicken

This sweet and tangy Asian sauce is the perfect summer BBQ meal. The sweet honey chars just a bit and makes these legs super flavorful. Try serving with Asian Sesame Slaw for a perfect meal.

3 T apple cider vinegar
3 T soy sauce
4 T honey
2 T chopped parsley

Par boil the chicken legs for 15 minutes so you don’t have to keep them on the grill too long and they don’t dry out. Preheat grill and spray with high heat Pam. Brush half the sauce on chicken legs and grill 15 minute or until done throughout. Put the remainder of the sauce in the microwave and cook 1 minute (make sure it comes to a boil). Mop the legs with the rest of the sauce when they come off the grill.
