Grilled Bacon Burgers

Whew, I'm back from the brief hiatus.

It felt good to get away from the internet and this crazy fast paced world, to just relax for a bit and not feel so overwhelmed and stressed with day to day life.  BUT, I did miss sharing my recipes online, so I'm glad to be back on track.

I'm going to share 3 recipes this morning/afternoon and I do have a few more coming up next week :)

The weather here has been absolutely beautiful and just yesterday we were sitting at 90 degrees, so up went the Canopy in the back yard, out came the grill and these babies were thrown on.
