Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope you’ve had a fabulous week so far. Despite the confusing Chicago weather all I can think about is the start of SUMMER. I’m so excited for the upcoming holiday weekend. Tony and I will be grillin’, chillin’, and (hopefully) enjoying some sunshine on the patio with friends.

The best part about any holiday? You guessed it – an excuse to cook up some delicious eats and tasty treats! I put together a list of 23 amazing recipes, from appetizers all the way to desserts, that are perfect for Memorial Day.

I hope you’ll get the chance to fire up the grill and gather around the table with the people you love!

Enjoy! xo
