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.

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.

Chocolate Bourbon Bundt Cake

Y’all know I’m a bourbon girl. Have been since college and we’re not going to talk about how LONG ago that way. I was NEVER (meaning still to this day) able to drink beer. I just can’t. So while I had my nose in the books in college I met Jack and Jim and so my love affair with the amber liquid began. Our story is a long and loving one and they’ve since introduced me to more of their friends: Mark, Colonel Taylor, and a plethora of others. I’m a social butterfly what can I say.

Lemon Curd Ice Cream

Lemon Curd Ice Cream
Don’t let the word CURD hold you back from this. I know, it’s a horrible word. I mean really, what were those in charge of naming all the things thinking when they said yes let’s call this CURD, insert the rolling eyes emoji here. It just sounds BAD and we know what it rhymes with. I know, but push that to the back of your mind and focus on LEMON instead and ICE CREAM. Better right?

This recipe is sure to float your bourbon boat. Wink. Wink. Did you know that July is not only my birth month but it’s also National Ice Cream Month. Wha? It’s a month long party and I’m completely okay with that. Especially since I make a boat load of ice cream. If you type in ICE CREAM into the search bar right up there you’re bound to find at least one ice cream recipe that you’ll want to make. If you’re into ice cream (and I hope you are) you’re likely to find enough to keep you busy for a while.
