Our Blog Ambassador Tiffany of Peanut Blossom shares some of her fantastic recipes, plus colorful food play ideas!


Our girls know that turning the grill on means a family fiesta so they had a blast testing out the new Melissa & Doug Rotisserie and Barbecue Grill Set. Daddy is usually the Grill Master so they loved taking their turn with a kid-safe version of his favorites.


Whole chickens are a huge favorite with both girls. The set comes with a hysterical full bodied chicken that can be turned on the spit and then cut up into pieces for serving. The hamburger and hot dogs come complete with grill marks and buns, and I love that they even included veggie heavy shish kebab items!

As the girls played, I asked them what some of their favorite grilled recipes have been in the past and I pulled together their recommendations for you!

5 tropical grill recipes inspired by the MELISSA & DOUG ROTISSERIE AND BARBECUE GRILL SET!:

  1. Grilled teriyaki meatballs
  2. Rum glazed pork tenderloin
  3. Cuban mojo marinade for grilled chicken
  4. Chimichurri steak — makes amazing sandwiches!

What’s your favorite recipe for the grill? I love playing, “Can you grill it?” with all kinds of fruits & vegetables. A new favorite from our summer experimentation is this grilled peaches recipe. Perfect for your dessert!
