Well, it’s September, and that means summer is drawing to a close. I do love this time of the year, because it’s a little cooler, but also because this is the best time of the year for fresh produce. Not much makes me happier than

Ahhhh Barbecue season. It’s too hot to cook outside, so you just do it all on the grill outside. There are few things I haven’t done on the BBQ… I remember making a dutch baby one time, and it turned out great. There’s just something
