Right around this time each year, I get a yearning for nightly grilling. Summer nights sound so appealing already. Do you get this way too?
The Preacher's dad, my dear father-in-law, gifted us his specially formulated blackening spice mix at Christmastime. A dusting of this fragrant mixture transforms fish and meats alike. A ubiquitous, modest chicken breast starts tasting a bit like something served up at the neighborhood bistro when "blackened" on the grill, and served over a crisp cobb salad. And because he's a generous kind of guy, Dad is sharing his recipe with all you lovelies today...enjoy!
