the perfect burger


Nothing like a great burger. Summer’s almost here and most of us will take to the grill. Personally I always think that cooking is all about the tools. A great grill and some handy utensils are always helpful. Just like the tools in my styling kit, the tools in my home kitchen are essential to working with ease. I recently tried these really cool grilling tools by Grill Daddy. They reached out to me and wanted me to try their product. You know I am obsessed with new cooking tools so why not! They sent me a set and I tried them out this weekend.

Super handy, the Grill Daddy heat shield barbecue tools shield your hands from grill heat and splatter. Clever, right?

The detachable heads mix and match on the handle.  The heat shield swivels with your hand for continuous protection while your grilling, a great feature especially with the tongs.


I love that you can change out the heads of the spatula, which includes a fish flipper, basting brush and fork attachment that are perfect for grilling.


Fire up the grill and get cooking. Tell me about your favorite tools of the trade and your favorite burger toppings!!

Pool Party Lamb Burgers

I don’t know about you, but I love burgers and I love lamb, so it seemed natural to add one to my cookbook:  Picture Perfect Parties. This is a burger with a Greek twist. Can I tell you I can hardly wait for summer and this burger says summer to me. Recipe below!



Stylist tip: I love serving burgers in a pita, it makes for a really pretty presentation and a clever twist to something that is perceived as a ho-hum burger. Give your burger a little style lift and serve it in a pita pocket.

Talk about Stylist Tips! Watch for more of my tips on The Today Show tomorrow, Friday May 2nd in the 10:00 hour with Kathie Lee and Hoda. I will show you how to take your basic dishes and give them my food/prop stylist extra style touch. Serve food with some flair, entertain like a pro and please tune in.
