The New Year is upon us and we’re starting out by cleaning up the house, organizing the garage, and donating what we don’t need. The weather has warmed up a little. We’re making the best of it and getting outside. And grilling outdoors, because one of my favorite things to whip up is my Brown Sugar Mustard Grilled Chicken. It’s packed full of flavors, with just the right touch of brown sugar that caramelizes as it cooks. Serve this yummy chicken on a toasted brioche bun or over a garden salad.
As a food blogger, I’ve had to figure out how to make this all work. Work from home and yet still bring in an income. Fortunately I’ve been freelance recipe developing for a major grocery store chain, full-time. That’s helped me pay bills and definitely think outside the box on unique recipes. Which brings me to the subject of ads on food bloggers websites. For me personally, I am distracted by ads. I hate how they clog up my screen, bounce around, and slow my browser. So, as long as I am able, you will not see a bunch of ads on my blog. Just a few affiliate links for Amazon. By purchasing from Amazon with those links, you help me earn a little income, at no cost to you. I certainly do not mean to offend any other food bloggers, this is just a personal preference. So go on and enjoy great recipes without the clutter of ads! I really hope you enjoy my Brown Sugar Mustard Grilled Chicken. It’s a keeper!
