how to make grilled pizza on the bbq
For a fun spin on a typical BBQ night, grilled pizza is a fun and delicious idea, for your family or for a creative night in with friends. Put out a topping bar and let everyone create their own custom pie — guaranteed belly happiness. We did this a few years ago at my husband’s parents house with their friends and have been meaning to replicate here. Lucky for all of us, TAGG’s food contributor Libby beat me to it, snapping these gorgeous shots along the way. Keep reading for a step-by-step photo tutorial how to make your pizza on your grill, and warning: don’t read while hungry.

pinapple whipped cocktail
I hate to overuse the word obsessed but this drink calls for it. Get ready: make plans to create this super simple drink and then have the best time sipping. If you haven’t tried Pinnacle’s Whipped Vodka, you and I (well me until recently at least!) clearly have been living in hiding. When I mentioned to a few friends I’d be partnering with Pinnacle this summer, no less than three went nuts over their love for the whipped vodka. I can see why.

street corn // the average girl's guide
From Alyson: Food contributor, Libby, and I were exchanging emails when she refereced this amazing corn she just made. I probably haven’t shared it here but the perfect creamed corn — or corn on the cob — might be one of my all-time favorite sides. So good. I insisted she make it for us, just in time for a weekend full of casual 4th of July BBQs. Add this rich side dish to anything you have grilling — chicken or steak, some roasted veggies. Delicious!

From Libby: It started with a trip to Tacos Al Carbon in South Florida, which sells some of the best tacos and Mexican food. While waiting for what felt like hours on a busy Friday night, we noticed a side stand selling corn in soda cups. It sounded irresistible to me so I excitedly approached. Keep Reading —>>


Baked brie is one of my favorite dishes; it’s my go-to crowd pleasure… it’s always inhaled!  I mean, how can warm, melting cheese not be insanely delicious? Check out Libby’s summery take here made with filo dough — hello there flaky pastry! — that’s an update to the more traditional iteration with preserves & nuts like I shared a few years back (ignore the pics!). Libby’s is so perfect for your next girls brunch or casual dinner party. Enjoy!  - Alyson


Everyone has that one recipe that always comes out at almost every party. It should be ridiculously easy, require almost no special ingredients and be made so often it’s commited to memory. I have two – a very easy artichoke-cheese dip and baked brie.

In the winter, I top the Brie with jam and nuts. But during the summer, I slip out to my overgrown swamp that I fondly refer to as my garden and snip off a few bunches of rosemary, and then douse the round of cheese in high-quality extra virgin olive oil and wrap it in filo sheets. It bakes for about 20-30 minutes and voila. Messy, creamy, cheesy delicious and the easiest going guest at any party. Keep Reading —>>
