Depending on the recipe, you can use a pan or a grill pan to recreate the same amazing taste as an outdoor grill. In order to provide you with some inspiration, here are 8 delicious winter grill recipes, aka indoor grill recipes, to try out:

      Charred onions taste heavenly and when they are mixed with a juicy steak, they make the perfect winter meal. This recipe can be done with lots of different types of meat. But if you do it with pork or lamb ribs, make sure you don’t skip the rosemary, which is going to add a fresh taste to the recipe.

      3. The Perfect Boston Butt

        One of the most popular kind of BBQ is the Boston butt, but when you don’t have a grill or you are too cold to stay outside, you can improvise with the oven. This Boston butt is going to be juicy and tender, just ready to be topped with potatoes and coated in a steamy hot sauce. The best thing about this recipe is that you can use the leftovers to make a delicious sandwich for the next day.

          With this recipe, you don’t have to worry about the ribs being too tough because they will cook perfectly. As they become softer, the fats are going to melt and mix with the spices, as well as the mustard-beer sauce, which will make a delicious glaze for the meat. If you want to have something different for this Christmas, this is the recipe to try out!

          5. Thai-Style Chicken Breasts

            Pork might be the most common meat choice for grills, but there are many other variations. Like this one, for example: chicken breasts. The balanced sweet and salty marinade for this recipe is going to create a nice char on the chicken breasts, without the need for a grill – a pan will do. As for the taste, it will resemble the taste of classic grilled chicken, but with a Thai kick.

              Catfish is going to burn on the pan, thus the alternative name of this recipe is blackened catfish. However, don’t be afraid of this. Blackened catfish has never been a bad thing. The fish is going to become juicy and tasty once the creamy mustard butter is starting to melt on top of it. Serve this with some lemon and you will fall in love with indoor grilling.

              7 Shrimp Skewers

                Before you give this recipe a try, sprinkle the pan with some cooking spray, so you won’t have problems cleaning it. Then, when the skewers are ready, coat the shrimp in peanut sauce or just accompany them with this amazing sauce, which is going to elevate the taste of the already delicious shrimp.

                  Big and white scallops are the perfect dish to accompany with a sauce made from bell peppers. Of course, both the peppers and the scallops are grilled, which gives them a sweet taste. If you prefer to spice things up, you can sprinkle some chili onto the scallops to add another layer to every bite.

                  How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                  How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                  Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

                  You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

                  Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

                  1. Work on the small tasks.

                  When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

                  Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

                  2. Take a break from your work desk.

                  Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

                  Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

                  3. Upgrade yourself

                  Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

                  The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

                  4. Talk to a friend.

                  Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

                  Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

                  5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

                  If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

                  Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

                  Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

                  6. Paint a vision to work towards.

                  If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

                  Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

                  Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

                  7. Read a book (or blog).

                  The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

                  Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

                  Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

                  8. Have a quick nap.

                  If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

                  9. Remember why you are doing this.

                  Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

                  What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

                  10. Find some competition.

                  Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

                  Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

                  11. Go exercise.

                  Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

                  Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

                  As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

                  Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

                  12. Take a good break.

                  Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

                  Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

                  Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
