Labor Day Recipe Guide

The official end of summer is upon us – Labor Day Weekend – which means a few things: a refreshing break from work and the opportunity to throw one last outdoor party before the weather starts to turn.

Personally, I like to throw more of an “upscale” version of a BBQ. This doesn’t mean you have to stress over an elaborate menu or spend hours decorating. For example, I’ll create a burger bar with all of the ingredients laid out on a table so guests can choose their own toppings. Make little interesting choices and it ends up making your BBQ upscale.

Savor the last few days of summer with some of my favorite recipes below. Enjoy!
