Did you know the official first day of summer was LAST week? I don’t know about you, but it has felt like summer here in Chicago for about a month now. I’ve been absolutely loving the heat, the longer days, and the chance to hang out on the patio with Tony.

We also have a bird feeder, so Milly likes to come plop her belly out and watch the birds too.

Did you know you can make grilled sweet potato fries in no time at all? Try this amazing recipe for sweet potato fries with a hint of garlic and sesame flavor! Served with a yogurt curry dip. 

I’ve decided that one of the things I love most about living in Chicago is that you get to experience such greenery in the spring and summer. It’s a little surprise that hits you with joy after wind whipping and snow for a good 6 months.

Now that summer is here, the outside of our condo is completely covered in beautiful green vines. I love opening my windows each morning and seeing the birds hang out amongst the vines, chirping as early at 4am.

Juicy grilled jerk chicken drumsticks with a delicious Caribbean Rice & sweet mango salsa. The perfect healthy grilling recipe for summertime!

When I was a wee little nugget aka a little lady, my favorite kind of chicken was chicken drumsticks. My mom grilled and baked them all the time for us, usually slightly coated or sometimes in zippy Puerto Rican spices with creamy beans and Spanish rice on the side. The chicken was incredibly juicy, so much more so than regular chicken breasts.

Now I wonder why I don’t eat it more often.

As you can see via Instagram, Tony and I have been grilling up a storm this summer. In fact, we been grilling on our deck nearly every night while our adorable little cat Milly watches and meows outside the window. We call it family night. Hah.

If you’ve been following AK for a while now, you know that my boyfriend is in love with meat, fries and pizza. On the other hand, I’m fond of spinach, avocados and nut butters. It’s an odd little combination but we love and accept each other’s need for particular foods, often planning meals around each of our individual cravings (like these healthier baked fries!).
