LOADED TACO BURGER

Fire up the grill and cook these Taco Burgers that are loaded with your favorite Mexican flavors.  These are sure to be a hit this summer!


Did you know that May is officially burger month?  Did you know that burgers are my favorite meal? So it looks like it is a win-win today with this recipe.  Those of you know me know that almost every Friday I have a cheeseburger, fries and a diet coke.  It's something that I look forward to all week; I guess I'm an all-American kind of gal!  I'm usually out and about on Friday, will make a stop to a fast food place and then continue on my way - quick and easy.  Today's recipe is also quick and easy to make at home.  You will love the juicy burger mixed with taco seasoning and green chilies topped with crispy lettuce, fresh tomatoes, cheese, avocado and smothered in a creamy salsa and sour cream topping.  Do I have your attention now?

Pull Apart Pizza Rolls


Pizza pull apart rolls make the perfect snack or dinner option. They are little, light fluffy pillows topped with Italian seasonings, cheese and pepperoni tucked in between.

It's Friday night and that means pizza for us but today I'm mixing it up a bit with these pull apart rolls - they are fun to make and you get to dunk these tasty rolls in your favorite pizza sauce!  They are also easy since you make and serve them in one skillet.  I'm pretty sure we won't have any leftovers :)

We are getting into the season of celebrations - Memorial Day, 4th of July and way down the road Labor Day (but hey, let's not rush it).  You can make a patriotic statement with this tasty salad containing lots of juicy strawberries, plump blueberries and crunchy jicama (what's this? keep reading).  Sounds good so far, right?  But be sure to drizzle it with some of the honey poppy seed vinaigrette.  It's a bit sweet and a bit tangy - perfect over these fresh ingredients.

Imagine yourself sitting on your deck or porch gathered with a few friends and enjoying one of these freshly made margaritas.  It can either be Cinco de Mayo, other holidays or just because (I like the just because!)  The weather is getting warmer and it is time to be outside, sitting back and relaxing.  Maybe you've been hibernating all winter and looking for an excuse to connect with your neighbors.  Make a pitcher of drinks, send out an all call to come over and get the party started.

Ba'Corn Cheese Skillet


How does a side dish sound that has bacon, corn and cheese?  Your taste buds will be tantalized!

Are you a fan of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives?  Do you have any places in your town that has been featured?  A few weeks ago the family was together and we were watching an episode where they featured this dish from The Bun Shop in Los Angeles.  I think we were all drooling so I knew I had to give it a try.  What's not to like with crispy bacon, charred corn, gooey cheese and a bit of jalapeno for some kick?  It's easy to make and made a great side dish when the DIY Guy made us some smoked ribs.  Do I have your taste bud's attention?
