Tender Chocolate & Potato Chip Cookies



We were all a bit skeptical of the thought of potato chips in cookies, but the taste and texture of these cookies were fantastic. The kids loved them, along with the adults. They may seem strange but give them a shot. Be sure to use plain, thin potato chips. Enjoy!

Barbecue Bacon Ranch Dip


This tasty Barbecue Bacon Ranch Dip is the perfect appetizer for holiday parties. It is a twist on a classic ranch dip, adding barbecue sauce, cheese, tomatoes and lots of bacon. I used my favorite brand of barbecue sauce for this, Sweet Baby Ray's.

Be sure to go with a sturdy cracker like wheat thins for this dip as more tender crackers will break trying to scoop the cream cheese mixture. Enjoy!


Halloween Fudge


Recently I posted a recipe over at Mom Spark for creamy Halloween fudge. Use up all that leftover candy corn! Head on over to check it out.

Barbecue, Monterey Jack & Avocado Burgers #SweetBabyRays


This tasty burger came about when I was asked by Sweet Baby Ray's to come up with a recipe for the football season. Before I start with the recipe, I feel the need to talk about promoted posts.

I am very stingy when it comes to promoting brands. You may have noticed that I pimp out companies....ah... almost never. I only mention specific brands by name if my family loves their products and buys them pretty much exclusively.

In fact, this Summer I made a quick Blueberry Jalapeno BBQ Sauce using Sweet Baby Ray's as my sauce base and it turned out delicious.

This is all to show you that I am a huge fan of this company and their products are the only barbecue sauce our family buys. I was paid to come up with a recipe and post about it, but all the opinions are my own.


Onto the burger! Right off the bat, it is important for you to note that this is a recipe for burgers meant to be made in pan, not on the grill. They will fall apart easily on the grill so please save yourself the frustration and make these in a pan on the stove.

I chose to use a Sweet Vidalia Onion barbecue sauce to flavor these delicious burgers. Also mixed into the meat is shredded Monterey Jack cheese. You can feel free to skip the special sauce if you'd like and top it with more barbecue sauce, but I've included that recipe as well.

If you are ready to make this flavorful burger, you can snag a coupon for a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's by participating in a contest they have running on facebook called "Pass the Sauce." By participating you'll also have a chance to win year's supply of barbecue sauce as well, which is pretty awesome. Grab a coupon and get cookin'! Enjoy!
