brain-tastes-copy1Labor Day has come and gone so that means fall is just around the corner. Bring it on – I don’t know about you, but I am ready for football and tailgating weather! I even went Greek for my post this week. Well, not in the fraternity/sorority way though. If you love burgers and you love lamb, my Greek-inspired Lamb and Olive Burgers with Lemony Feta Aïoli recipe brings them together for you.

These are some of my favorite posts from all over the interwebs from this week. I hope you enjoy them, too!
