Welcome to the third edition of the Weekend Wrap-Up. Here you can find all of the latest foodie news and other interesting little crumbs I find throughout my journeys. Once again, I’ve wrapped up some good ones this week. The picture above is a small piece of my weekend, which was filled with summer fruit recipes. For your viewing pleasure, the grilled banana split.

Can you every really get enough grilled pineapple, though?
