Thank you so much to Revol for sponsoring this cookout! As always, all opinions are my own.
Can we all just agree that summertime is the best? From the pool parties to the camp-outs, napping on hammocks in the shade and watching movies under the stars.
We’ve been having a blast so far, and I hope that y’all have been too.
I feel like I’m getting so old though, when every time I sit down to look at the calendar I think “Already?!”. Like right now, when I’m realizing that we are just days shy of celebrating July 4th. In fact, we just got back from our small town celebration where we get to see fireworks a few days early.
Despite how quickly time is advancing, I don’t mind. We’re knocking off plenty of things from our bucket list and keeping ourselves so very busy and having a blast.
And the food.. did I mention the food yet? This summer is going to be dubbed the Summer of a 100 BBQs because we’re outside every chance we get: using the grill, cooking over charcoal or the smoker. One of the cool things about cooking outdoors so much was it led me to this company, Revol, which makes some amazing products that have streamlined our process. I was especially excited when I came across this brand, which has made our cooking much more streamlined, plus way more attractive!
Now they make way more products than just what you’d grill with, with a beautiful line of kitchen products that you can use for baking, cooking, serving and drinking. Check out their site to see their full line up and see just how dedicated they are to quality!
While they make plenty of products, I was enamored with this lineup of Basalt items, which are basically just the most versatile things ever:
Made from durable porcelain that won’t scratch, chip, or stain, these dishes look like slate but perform much better. Microwave, freezer, and oven safe up to 572 degrees Fahrenheit, these are the perfect dishes to serve hot or cold appetizers for parties. The black porcelain works well at both casual get-togethers and more elegant parties because you can dress them up or down depending on what you serve and what dishes you pair them with. The non-porous porcelain won’t absorb odors or stains, so you can count on these dishes recipe after recipe. [See their lineup of Basalt here]
I love being able to cook right on the platter, then move the entire thing off of the grill to let it cool. It served as the perfect vessel for these smoked chicken fajitas! It meant that we could pre-slice the veggies without having to worry about them falling through the grill, and since these fajitas are so veggie heavy it really saved us a ton of time.
For them we charred fresh broccoli, corn on the cob, red pepper, zucchini and onions. We also smoked chicken. Then it was as simple as throwing it all on a warm tortilla with a side of salsa and eating it up!
