It’s that time of year! Backyard barbecues are the perfect way to spend time with family and friends AND minimize the indoor mess your sweet little banshees children are sure to make. With Memorial Day fast approaching, we’re excited to share some recipes we created, with the help of our friends over at Sprouts Farmers Market! I was given the specific challenge of coming up with some original burger sauces and I have to admit, I was skeptical. I’m a bit of burger purist- I like a salt and pepper patty, medium rare with lots of American cheese. But, I confess, I had no idea what I was missing out on! These sauces created a whole new burger experience for me and my boys– and I love that I can throw them together in a pinch to make an old tradition something new and fresh! So without further ado, here are 3 easy burger sauce recipes to spice up your Memorial Day and get you crowned Queen of this Summer’s barbecue season!

Dani is a loud, Italian, New York transplant who came to Colorado for college and never left. It was there she met the love of her life and very best friend and put down roots in Denver. Mama to the wildest almost-2-year old little boy in town, she is a retired therapist (at least for now), works full time as a mom, and works part time as a floral designer out of her home. She’s a home body, loves to cook, and defines cleaning as making sure everything “looks pretty.” Motherhood has pretty much blown all of her expectations out of the water and she’s still trying to figure out where, how, and when to come up for air. Dry shampoo has become a way of life because showers have become nearly impossible. Her husband, houseplants, and life long girlfriends keep her sane on this incredible (and at times, bewildering) adventure.
