2021 Annual Holiday Gift Guide For Foodies- AND many updates! Including the Modern Farmhouse We Built!
Damn. WHAT A YEAR IT’S BEEN! I wanted to give everyone a quick update to let everyone know that my annual Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies is out as a permanent page on the website and you can find it here. I have so much valuable information in here that I wanted to make sure it stayed live on the homepage of the site for as long as possible. If you want additional ideas, check out my gift guides from previous years as well.
This has been a year for the books so I thought I’d give everyone a quick update in the case you didn’t know all the exciting stuff that’s been in the works! Including the GrillGirl™️ Magazine launch and much more!
So, first- back to the gift guide. If you look at the gift guide, you’ll see Include a section called “What’s the best grill for you?” because many people ask me what kind of grill they should get but there are so many more choices than there were even 5 yers ago. That is why I took all the valuable information from the MAGAZINE I launched this year and put it into the Gift guide so everyone could benefit from this info!
Now, once you’ve figured out what the best type of grill is for your lifestyle, you’ll see the recommendations I give for each type of grill. I did a lot of research to ensure that I was making the best recommendation for each type of grill in the launch of my magazine this year so I thought everyone would find this valuable come the Holidays so they know what to buy when they go to get a new grill.
Sunshine State of Mind Craft BBQ Rub and Cocktail Rimmer
In addition to launching a Magazine his year (you can still purchase a magazine here if you’d like a copy), I also launched a CRAFT BBQ RUB! I launched Sunshine State of Mind Craft BBQ Rub that is totally different than everything on the market. With base notes of Kaffir lime, coriander, orange zest, granulated honey and Himalayan Salt, this rub is an all purpose rub that is amazing on all proteins but especially fish, chicken and pork and is also a cocktail rimmer. You can read the full announcement here and purchase it here.

I’m not sure if many of you guys know this but all while I was working on quitting my job to become Full time GrillGirl, and launching a magazine and a CRAFT BBQ Rub, I was also working on building a house out on 30 acres out in Punta Gorda, FL near the solar community of Babcock Ranch. You can follow along on the instagram handle where we document everyhing here. It’s quite a WILD (literally) ride living out in the country! Lions, and tigers and bears, OH MY!
And because I could never find BBQ t-shirts I like, I decided to design my own! If you love BBQ, check out some of my fun new BBQ tshirts. I also made a shirt dedicated to my love of Margaritas because well, if you know me, you know this shirt says a lot about me lol. Doesn’t everyone have a “margaritas made me do it” story?
Thanks to everyone who has been a part of this epic year and I’m excited to make 2022 an unforgettable year as well. Stay tuned as I’ll be announcing my next WOMENS GRILLING CLINIC at the Ranch after a long hiatus of doing these. They’re coming back and better than ever!
All my love,
