Mushroom and Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos

It’s pigskin season. You know that game that’s plastered all over the television. The one where guys run around in tight pants, running into each other. The one that has all kinds of amazing fun finger foods served at parties. That one. I’m not a big fan of the actual game (gasp) but, hold on, I’m going to redeem myself. I’m a big fan of the FOOD that goes along with it. Whether you’re off to the actual game and tailgating, or hosting a get together around your sectional you need FOOD. These little babies are bound to become a pigskin party favorite. Promise. Well maybe not promise, but they’re day-um good.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Layered Fudge

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Layered Fudge

Tis the season to break out the fat pants, or maybe just work harder on the treadmill. I still haven’t decided. Okay, okay I should just go with balance, I mean that would be the responsible thing to do, right? Adulting isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be but alas, I am an adult. Or so I tell myself. So I’ll make the fudge, eat the fudge and then workout. Eat more fudge, because, hello sweet teeth.

Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta with Nectarines and Honey

Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta with Nectarines and Honey

Disclaimer: This post was sponsored by Buzz + Bloom Honey. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I’ll let you in on a little secret, when I’m hosting people for dinner I’m not big on wanting to make dessert. After I’ve made all the plans for the meal itself I’m kinda spent. BUT, I have a wicked sweet tooth and do want to finish it off with something sweet and EASY. What is that you ask? Panna Cotta. It’s my go to dessert for many reasons. First, it’s creamy and dreamy. Second and probably most important it literally takes 10 minutes of active prep time. That’s it.

10 minutes y’all. It also can be made the night before, which is a life saver when you’re the hostess with the mostess. It’s just a winner winner to go with your chicken dinner.

It’s a simple combination of a few ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge/pantry. Nothing fancy here. The best part, I like to finish it with fresh seasonal fruits and a generous drizzle of HONEY.

Bourbon BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger

BBQ Bourbon Bacon Burger

There is just something about a big FAT juicy (sorry I hate that word too, but if the shoe fits) cheeseburger that gets me going. Now that I’m all grown up I need a little more something something to my cheeseburgers though. Know what I’m sayin’? You can’t ever go wrong slapping on a few slices of perfectly cooked bacon so that’s a given. You also need to give a little thought to the bun. No plain jane sesame seed buns for me. No sir ree. I’m a brioche or pretzel bun every single timer. If I’m going to indulge in carbs, I’m going all the way.

DIY Vanilla Spiced Bourbon

DIY Vanilla Spiced Bourbon

I should probably live in Kentucky with my over the top LOVE for bourbon. I mean it’s only logical. It’s where it’s made and it has some of the best countryside I’ve seen. It’s gorgeous. Doesn’t hurt it has a gazillion barns speckled throughout and I’ve got a hot and heavy thing for those too. Barns, bourbon, and my bike. I’m SO IN. Yes, I big puffy heart you and your bourbon Kentucky. People always ask me what my favorite bourbon is. I have a few that I adore but honestly it just depends on my mood as to what I’m reaching for.
