It's Officially Sunny Grilling Season!

Now that spring is finally warming up, it's time to pop open that grill and get to work. You're finally able to enjoy your meals outdoors again. There are plenty of reasons to head outside for lunch or dinnner, not just the warm weather. Mother's Day is just around the corner, friends will have Father's Day and June bashes, and there is the 4th of July too; Okay maybe it has a little to do with that warm sunshine!

Make this grilling season a bit more interesting than last year, and impress your family and friends, with this great Home-Made Mustard recipe.

Mustard? YES, mustard! It is more than just a blank yellow condiment from the store shelf. Making mustard at home is rewarding. You can guarantee it will be delicious, fresh, tailored to your tastes, and wholesome (or did I mean awesome?).

Definately try this new recipe as a spread for your sandwich, but think a bit outside the box too! Our recipe is made with Pour Olive's Champagne Balsamic, but replace that with Pour Olive's Maple Balsamic and spread it on pork chops while they grill. It's a great zesty and sweet combo that is SURE to please.
Mix this mustard into your vinaigrette to create a perfect emulsion, toss it with potatoes before they go in the oven and mix them into your mashed potatoes as well. Mix up an egg or pasta salad...the uses are endless, not to mention that mustard and balsamic are a healthy flavor boost to boot.

So conquer the grilling season and enjoy your "wow that was easy" Home-Made Mustard soon!
