Isn’t grilling season just the best? From burgers to chicken to fish to kafta… you name it, we are grilling it! In fact, now that the weather has warmed up we aim to eat at least two meals a day outside and I absolutely love it.

We even bought the boys their very own kiddie picnic table to celebrate the season. They think lunchtime is a special occasion because they get to eat outside and I love walking back inside to a clean kitchen afterwards.

With Father’s Day right around the corner, I couldn’t resist sharing a new burger recipe. Second to pizza, my husband loves a good burger and almost always orders them when we go out to eat.

To give this burger a Middle Eastern twist, I topped it with the easy and addictive Creamy Tahini Garlic Mayo. Made with real mayonnaise, creamy tahini, fresh garlic and bright lemon juice, it is the perfect cool, creamy topping for the hot, slightly-charred filet burgers.
