Labor Day Recipe Round-Up!

By Michelle May, M.D.

Chipotle Portobello BurgersI LOVE these holiday weekends! We like to get out of the heat and spend time with family and friends. As many of you know, my husband, Chef Owen and I love to create great food together. I’ve also taken up a new hobby – photography! We are adding about one recipe a week with photos to the I Am Hungry? section of this website. With Labor Day weekend coming up, I’ve rounded up a few of our favorite recipes that would be great for a Labor Day Holiday BBQ.

Before we get to the Labor Day recipes, let’s remind ourselves that the real purpose of these holiday gatherings is the connections. Food is just the background music!

Post your comments please! Did you try any of these recipes or do you make something similar? And what do you think of my photos? It’s a fun hobby so I’ll keep practicing – especially since we get to eat the models!
