hey there! this recipe is the latest and greatest from my recipe swap club. This month I partnered with The Culinary Taste to bring you this oh so summer perfect ribs with a Jack & Coke marinade. This particular collaboration was extra fun because I got to interview the chef behind the recipe as well as see one of my recipes come to life on his blog. For those of you who may be new to my blog the recipe swap club is a group in which I collaborate with a new blogger each month to try out one of their recipes and vice versa - I love it because it helps me learn and try new things, which in turn I get to share with you!
hi y'all! Some of my favorite recipes I make tend to be a mix of what I have in the kitchen that needs used up ... it's amazing the creativity that sparks when you're feeling lazy. I had some leftover mozzarella and pesto from the naan flatbread I made last week (so yummy) and had my eye on these totally delicious pretzel buns the bakery had made up so sliders it was. I know these aren't anything super complex but they were so darn good. I can't believe I hadn't tried this combo before. I got a "you will totally need to make these for us again" from my man which is always the tell tale sign that the recipe was a winner. We ate these up for dinner but they would be a great party appetizer, barbecue addition, or game day recipe to serve. Enjoy!
Why are sliders so much more fun to eat than a regular sandwich? Maybe because they're mini and everything's cuter mini, or maybe because I get to eat 3 not just 1. Not really sure, but I know I can't get enough of them and can't wait to make many more combinations. These pulled pork with toasted buns & coleslaw were the absolute bomb.com. I made them up for dinner but these would be a perfect appetizer to put out on game day or a party tray as well! I also love that the slow cooker does most of the work on this one so it's a fairly effortless but totally tasty dish... but don't worry, if you don't have time to slow cook and just want to put some sliders together I'll give you the short cut!
I think a good slow cooked meat is one of those recipes everyone should have on hand, I can't speak up enough about how much I love a good crock pot meal. There is so little effort required for such a flavor packed and tender meal. I mean seriously you throw everything in there, let it cook and then just add a few final touches. It's perfect if you have day time plans or just know you won't feel like making dinner but have some time on your hands in the morning. I especially love slow cooking meat in the fall and winter. Football season is around so I can toss everything in in the morning, enjoy the day and a few beers and have a delicious meal waiting. I also love how yummy the house smells and the great BBQ flavor you get out of this meal on a cool cozy fall day spent away from your grill and indoors.
Hi y'all! Summer may be on it's way out for the year but football season is rolling in which means grilling season is still in full swing! In my opinion corn tastes miles better when grilled vs. boiled or baked and is such an easy go to side dish to add to any meal you may be firing up the grill for. Most importantly it's super easy and low maintenance meaning you can pay attention to your game, your company, or maybe most importantly, your game day beverage. Don't get me wrong, this recipe is great and easy for any night of the week, I've just got football on my mind today! My boyfriend and I love dinners on the grill because not only is it tasty, but it's fun for both of us.I love nights when I season and prep dinner and he takes on the BBQ - date night team work! Anyways, enough about me and why I love grilling, let's get to it so you can enjoy too!
If you've never had beer can chicken I'm just going to say it right now. You. are. missing. out. Cooking the chicken whole allows all of the juices to stay in and keep the meat really tender. Adding the can of beer inside allows carbonation and steaming to hydrate the chicken from the inside out. You can season it and add other flavoring to the beer can to infuse the chicken and really make the flavoring your own. Point being this is really darn delicious ... and good news is it's easier than it looks to cook and I will walk you through it step by step!
So tossing pizza on the grill was a total test, and I'm so glad I gave it a try! Before we get any further I"ll forewarn you that this makes a crispy bottomed crust, like really crispy, with a great BBQ flavor so if crispy thin crusts or wood fired pizza aren't for you this may not be up your alley, but I have to say... it was so different and so good! My boyfriend got some grill stones set up on his outdoor grill recently and I'd been excited to try this ever since. While I have read online that you can cook directly on the grill, I was starting with raw dough and wanted to make sure I had a smooth surface to work with. Try finding a good pizza stone or granite slab that is grill safe. I'll keep this recipe pretty simple and focused on the how to of cooking the pizza and let you top however you desire!
I have to admit, after all the good food I enjoyed over MDW it is time for a good healthy week this week. But all the deliciousness was so worth it, including these amazing beer infused burgers. It doesn't take much beer, but it makes them so tender and so good!!! Also, it gives you a reason to crack open a beer to accompany you by the grill. You can totally top them however you want, and use any kind of bread you desire (this fresh from the bakery brioche was pretty darn perfect) ... so I'll just walk you through how to season & cook the meat and let you get creative with how you serve it up!
Y'all, these are so addicting! If you've got a party or event to make up an appetizer for I can't recommend this enough. It takes about 5 minutes of my time to put together and then the crock-pot takes care of the rest. Recipes that are so little effort & ingredients, yet are big hits are the best, am I right?! The flavor is incredible and they are so tender from being in the crock-pot. Enjoy!
I made these for a family gathering appetizer and I'll start by saying there are zero leftovers. I'm talking people just hanging by the crockpot and saying these are going to need to be a staple thing I make for events. This shouldn't be much of a surprise because bacon wrapped anything is delicious - especially when you add sauce, sugar, and slow cook it! These would be perfect for superbowl or game watching parties as well as an addition to any sort of finger food or appetizer offering!
