Hit the Grill this Memorial Day!
Even though the official first day of summer isn’t until June, Memorial Day seems to be the unofficial start of summer for most people. With summer right around the corner, this weekend is a perfect time to celebrate the last few days of National BBQ Month by cooking up some scrumptious grilled dishes. No need to have boring hamburgers and hot dogs on your weekend cookout menu, Wholesome Sweeteners has you covered with three recipes that will impress guests.
