As hot weather rolls in, it’s a great time to grill out. Not only is grilling the perfect starting place for a delicious meal, it can also help reduce your energy usage. Grilling keeps the summer heat outside—where it belongs, and, since dinner takes place during peak energy hours, cooking outdoors can benefit your electric bill.
If you’re like me, being at home for the past month has meant cooking more than usual—but it has also meant utilizing what I have on hand. I prepared all of this month’s recipes with ingredients I already had in my refrigerator, freezer or pantry.
Right now is a great time to take an inventory of what’s in your pantry. You might not have everything you need to make a recipe as written, but don’t be afraid to change it up.
This month, we are going beyond the basic buttermilk, to give you a few flapjack inspirations.

Summer is here, and the virus that has plagued Oklahoma, our nation and the world remains active. In one way or another, COVID-19 has left few unaffected. This month, the cover feature of Oklahoma Living magazine tells the story of health care workers who are diligently responding to this health crisis in rural Oklahoma.
I’m fortunate to be in the third generation living on my family cattle farm. I was born and raised in Purcell, Oklahoma, and graduated from Purcell schools. With over four decades of experience in business entrepreneurship and self-employment, I’m a strong supporter of raising the quality of life in rural Oklahoma. That is why I stand behind the electric cooperative movement, and I’m committed to serve in this important industry for the benefit of our local communities, including my own.
