We are ALWAYS on the hunt for healthy snacks to get us through the day.  I swear that Charlie says ‘I’m hungry’ 50 times a day, and I can’t even imagine what it will be like once Max can talk, that kid can EAT!

Cedar Plank Salmon Burgers

Typically speaking, by the time August wraps up I’m completely over burgers of any kind. That was until we made these Cedar Plank Salmon Burgers. Where have these been all of my life? Now, I’ve had salmon burgers before, but they all pale in comparison next to these (if I may be so bold).
