I am about ready for these teaser 70 degree “summer days” to turn into the real deal! Last week I enjoyed this delicious grilled flatbread with a glass of red wine on my rooftop, and this week I am battling through the rain in my winter coat on my way to work…

Healthy Pizza’s on the Grill

The idea of making pizza dough might be intimidating or just plain time consuming to some. The recipe below is a one that doesn’t take any pre-planning or overnight rising of the dough. It’s an awesome recipe, that is perfect for the grill!

These cinnamon rolls are definitely not made with bikini season in mind, but even with these deliciously sweet rolls it’s nice to substitute out the fat where you can!
