I think that we can officially declare that it is grilling season. With the warm weather and the 4th of July just around the corner I can’t wait!
My hubby claims to be the grill master. I do all of the cooking around here, but when it comes to the grill, that is his territory. But I have yet to find someone that can make chicken so juicy and tender and burgers that are cooked to perfection.
He wasn’t around for the last family barbecue, so I had to make something delicious and grill it. The pressure was on. I made these DE-licious Tuscan Garlic Burgers.
