So with the Easter holiday approaching this weekend, we decided to do something a little different, we are going to have an informal cookout. Of course there will be all kinds of foods that I don't normally eat and I like to try to introduce a healthier version of a family favorite if I can, so this time I am thinking of these two recipes. I will be putting them out and will provide a review after the family gives them a try.
