Tortellini Salad #CookoutWeek

I would like to share a recipe from my good friend, Cathy Repp, who caters events at the winery where I work. Every time she is coming, our entire staff looks forward to tasting her food. It is always delicious. She passed this recipe on to me a few years ago and was gracious enough […]

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 […]

Campfire Duck Bacon Pancakes #CookoutWeek

Duck bacon? I know it sounds weird, but this bacon is downright delicious! This year, Maple Leaf Farms is one of our awesome #CookoutWeek sponsors, so I was lucky enough to get some delicious duck products to taste-test. 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 […]

Frozen Root Beer Float Pops #CookoutWeek

Can I just start off by telling you how much I LOVE going to the thrift store? Seriously. The US’s biggest thrift store is not far from me and I love a good deal. Last time I stopped in, I found a set of 6 popsicle molds for 99 cents! On my way home from […]

Salted Caramel Marshmallow Ice Cream (No Churn!) #CookoutWeek

This recipe is sponsored by The French Farm. All opinions are my own. When I was a kid, I went to Girl Scout day camp every single summer. I was so dedicated to it, that I once hid a broken hand from my mom so that I could still go to camp on Monday morning […]
