Mediterranean Grilled Chicken and Sundried Tomato Kabobs

Sun dried tomatoes, fresh oregano, garlic, lemons, and  virgin olive oil all remind me of the Mediterranean summers.  When I make this grilled chicken dish, I am transported to the  Sicilian Countryside at a outdoor bbq.  These kabobs are fast and easy to make, have lots of flavor and are great for your  summertime grilling.  Let’s cook!

Thyme-burgers for lunch!! or dinner…

A great lunch or dinner idea these yummy bunless burgers can be whipped up in minutes.  Mix the ingredients, skewer the burgers and throw them on a hot grill.  I love them served on a bed of leafy mixed greens with an heirloom tomato.  Instead of a plain burger give these a try……I bet you will love them too!!!
