Memorial Day weekend is the kick-off to summer. It’s three days of no work and all play, three days away from the office, and three relaxing days filled with family picnics, boating on the lake, and enjoying the warmer weather.
The holiday weekend is also the unofficial start of barbecue season. While we tend to associate grilling with burgers and hotdogs, it can be used to satisfy our sweet tooth as well. Try one of the recipes below for a light dessert you can make while the grill is still fired up.
