Friday's Feature- Grill Charms


I came across a product and site a couple of months ago called Grill Charms, and thought these were so unique! And when I found out they were created by a Mom-Prenuer & Breast Cancer Survivor...I had to learn more about the creator of these Grill Charms!

Grill Charms™ are similar in concept to the wine charm. These dime-sized solid stainless steel charms are placed in your food BEFORE grilling. The stems are serrated to hold securely while grilling, moving and flipping. Grill Charm™ your food PRIOR to cooking to distinguish spices and flavors, steak temperatures, or to avoid health or allergy issues. When dinner comes off the grill everyone knows which one is theirs!

They have lots of charms to choose from.

"Medium" Charm.........
And a fun more personalized charm...
I contacted the owner, Leslie Haywood, and asked her if I could feature Grill Charms and what inspired her to come up with this creative idea!

"I worked for corporate America until I had our first daughter and left a fantastic company and wonderful career to be a stay-at-home mom. I didn't mean to throw myself head first back into business, but I just couldn't help myself.

While sitting down to eat at a dinner party I was hosting, my husband served me an extra hot Jamaican Jerk piece of chicken instead of a mild one because he had forgotten which pieces were which. After this very memorable and very spicy light bulb moment in April 2006 I have felt what I can only describe as a compulsion to insure every American gets what they want - how they want it - hot off the grill.

I have tried very hard to balance family (passion #1) and business (passion #2). I hope to make our two daughters proud one day, and even though I am making some sacrifices now (trying not to make too terribly many as they are only babies once), I hope that in the future they can look at what I have done and know that their opportunities are limited only by their dreams.

Oh yeah... one last part of "who I am". I am a Survivor. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2006, had a bilateral mastectomy in August of 2006 during the middle of all the start-up stuff involved with launching a company, and now, two reconstructive procedures later, I'm better then ever! The scars never let me forget so I feel I must mention it, but it by no means defines who I am; it's just another facet to the ever complex and changing person that is first and foremost "Mommy"."

Leslie has very kindly offered $5 off your box of Grill Charms! Simply go to Grill Charms, shop away, and upon checkout put the code "grilling" in the coupon code box and you will get $5 off a box of Grill Charms!
