I have some very exciting news to announce...our air conditioning is finally working! Yes, I'm actually sitting here in a very cool and comfortable house. We can finally enjoy the time spent in the house instead of being incredibly irritable as we try to find ways to escape the heat.

Thankfully, the repairman was able to fix the broken unit just in time for us to comfortably enjoy the upcoming weekend. As we enter into this long holiday weekend, I can't help but think about all of the delicious food that I'll be eating. Labor Day always reminds me of boating, beer, burgers, and...hmmm....what's another "b" word...barbecues. How could I forget such an important word?

I know that we'll be firing up the grill a lot over the next few days and I cannot wait to experiment with some new and tasty recipes. Our days will consist of grilling meats, sipping wines, relaxing with family and friends, and enjoying the outdoors.

To help you celebrate the holiday, I've compiled a list of some of my favorite recipes that I like to prepare when we have family and friends over for a barbecue at our house.

I also wanted to share with you a simple and delicious wrap that is perfect to serve at a picnic, on a boat, at a barbecue...or wherever your plans take you during this holiday weekend!

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  5. Is 15 min enough to heat the tenderloins through?
