Grilled Pound Cake with Honey Vanilla Apples

This year, Chef Shamy was one of our delicious #CookoutWeek sponsors. Well, let me tell you, I am still enjoying their yummy flavored butters on pretty much everything. Thank goodness their butter comes in huge tubs! We were grilling recently and I wanted something sweet for dessert. But of course it has been so hot […]

Tortellini Salad #CookoutWeek

Lemonade Cupcakes #CookoutWeek

I love lemon-flavored desserts during the summer. There’s just something about lemons and other citrus fruit that screams YAY SUMMERTIME to me. When I was thinking about doing a lemonade cupcake recipe for #CookoutWeek, I originally was considering raspberry lemonade or strawberry lemonade or some other fancy flavor. But you know what? My favorite thing […]

I was very tentative, because I have tried some products masquerading as bacon that are… well…definitely not […]

Mini Hasselback Potatoes with Garlic Butter #CookoutWeek

We all have those go-to recipes when we don’t know what to make. For me, it’s these mini garlic hasselback potatoes. They get tender and slightly crispy, and you can make them on the grill in the summer and in the oven year-round. I used to make them with a sprinkle of garlic powder… but […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Cookies

My mom makes the BEST chocolate peanut butter cake. The cake itself is chocolate, but then she tops it with peanut butter icing…. omg, SO GOOD y’all. And I’m not usually a big cake person. When Better Body Foods sent me some PBfit powdered peanut butter to try, I immediately thought about that cake. I […]
