There is one thing that truly shouts 'summer' and thats the flavourful scents from the bbq's cooking & charcoal burning! It is the sign that summer is finally here and something delicious is in the works.

There is nothing that I enjoy more than getting my family & friends together, and enjoying a delicious meal together on a warm sunny day! Čevapčiči are the perfect way to start off the BBQ season! They are always a hit with everyone!
