I am so ready for the lazy days of summer, and these Summer Berry Crumb Bars are the perfect way to celebrate!  There is nothing here but fresh summer berries and an easy-to-make crumb crust.  I used a mix of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries in this picture, but you can use one berry or whatever you have on hand.  Pop it in the oven for a beautiful and delicious summer treat.

Grilled Avocado with Mango-Pineapple Salsa

Memorial Day usually officially opens Grilling Season; however, the relentless rain we have been experiencing in Texas is putting a damper on our grilling season! When you have the chance, and your grill is hot, you must make these Grilled Avocados.  They are so simple, but they incredibly yummy and go with just about anything you’ve got on the grill.

All you need to do is season them with a little olive oil, lime juice, and salt and pepper.
