You think you’ve seen it all when it comes to burgers?!  HA!  I’m about to blow your mind and rock your taste buds with this Caramel Infused Apple Cheddar Chicken Burger. It has Caramel Creams® caramel sauce IN THE BURGER (and on top!). Prepare for deliciousness!

This post is being sponsored by Goetz’s Candy Company featuring their Caramel Creams® candies (which are seriously one of the best candies on the face of the planet!).  All opinions of these ABSOLUTELY AMAZING candies are mine.

OMG guys do I have a life-changing burger for you today. Yeah I know, another burger recipe. There are 4 trillion recipes out there but this one, this one here folks is ridiculous. This one here is a game changer. This burger just showed up to your cookout, kicked everything off the grill and said: “No, I’M THE KING OF BURGERS now beat it punk!” Yah, it’s THAT GOOD!  So let me dish for a few about this burger – it has candy IN THE BURGER. Yes, you read that right…

Caramel Creams®. In. The. Burger

Just let that soak in for a second. I took one of my absolute favorite candies and put it in a burger. I know, only I would push candy and burgers to a limit like that. You’re welcome. When I tell you this is honestly my all time favorite burger, believe it. It’s super juicy, savory and sweet and full of flavors.

Carmel Infused Apple Cheddar Chicken Burgers made with Caramel Creams®

So how did this all come about?  About 6 months ago when I was work, one of my co-workers asked if I wanted to talk a walk and get a snack from our little luncheon room. From the vending machine, he ended up getting a package of Caramel Creams®. As he opened the package I smiled as these candies were my Dad’s favorite. My friend offered me one as we walked back to our desks. As I unwrapped mine and popped it in my mouth something happened as I kind of zoned out for a bit. You see that little candy brought back so many childhood memories I shared with my Dad.

Elevate your burger game to a whole new level of deliciousness!

Only 30 minutes is all you need to take your backyard bbq appetizers to a whole new level!  These Peach BBQ Pork Bite Crostinis will be the biggest hit of every cookout this summer!  It’s time to get your deliciousness on! as

Oh, warmer sunny days how I love you. It’s funny how a simple thing like a sunny day can bring a smile to your face and put you in a better mood. The sound of neighborhood kids riding their bikes up and down the streets. The smell of cookouts filling the air. Ah yes, warmer days = toes in the grass, backyard get-togethers, and cookouts. One thing most people don’t think about when it comes to cookouts is appetizers. I mean we serve appetizers during indoor meals or when we go out to eat so why shouldn’t we have them for our backyard cookouts? Granted they don’t necessarily need to be as elaborate as say a Christmas dinner but they still should be there. And please, please, please – while potato chips rock they are NOT an appetizer. lol

This recipe today is for one of my favorite cookout appetizers. Again it looks uber hard and fancy schmancy but please, all you need is 30 minutes and you have a recipe that will be the hit of every cookout. Forget Uncle Tommy’s prized ribs or Jonny’s epic burgers. Pfft!  These Peach BBQ Pork Bite Crostinis steal the show. I’m teaming up with Smithfield® and showcasing their Smithfield Marinated Sweet & Smoky Pork Roast. What I absolutely LOVE about these items is that it’s 100% pork. Period. Pure piggy!  And you all know how much I love pigs. But what’s honestly some of the best points about this is it’s practical. The Fresh pork is marinated! Smithfield® takes care of folks offering a variety of marinated fresh pork options to create easy meals for any night of the week. Simply put you can create “Real Flavor Real Fast.”

Let’s create deliciousness in 30 minutes!

Buckeye Ice Cream Peanut Butter Cake Bomb

If you’re a peanut butter lover I’m about to BLOW YOUR MIND (and taste buds) with this Seriously Delicious Buckeye Ice Cream Peanut Butter Cake Bomb! Creamy peanut butter swirl ice cream, buckeye filling, chocolate cookie crumble and ridiculous hot fudge center!

Ice cream to me knows no seasons as it’s always in my fridge. It’s been there for celebrations, parties, break-ups, date nights, girl’s nights, and those nights when you just want to shut off the world, pop in your favorite movie and curl up on the couch with a big ol’ bowl of creamy deliciousness. Ice cream gets me. It doesn’t judge and is always there to comfort. Just like how I am when it comes to pizza, I’m an ice cream snob. We LOVE Blue Bunny® ice cream. Like if you looked in my freezers right now I have 4 containers there plus a package of their new Bunny Snacks™. Ice cream is no joke in my house. We take it very seriously and even more serious when you touch a flavor that is not yours. While marriage is all about give and take; an equal partnership there is nothing equal when it comes to ice cream. You have yours; I have mine – let the balance stay as that.

I’m fortunate right now as the amazing folks from Blue Bunny® reached out looking for deliciously creative ways to showcase some of their new 2017 lineup of ice cream flavors and treats. Needless to say, I was am over the moon elated. I mean I get a professional reason to go buy (and eat) ice cream!  HA!  Take that yoga pants for judging me every time I eat ice cream! This is a legit reason to partake in deliciousness!

As I mentioned they recently came out with new flavors and treats, one of which I’m going nuts over. If you’re a peanut butter lover you’re going to lose your mind! PB ‘N Cones™ has swirls of creamy peanut butter and crunchy chocolate dipped cone pieces throughout the delicious vanilla ice cream. Wha?! They also came out with Rockin’ Rocky Road™, Monster Cookie Mash, Toffee Brownie Twist™ and Mint Cookie Crunch as well. Plus for all of your cherry lovers, their Cherrific Cheesecake, which had been a seasonal flavor, is now available year-round.  I know Mr. Fantabulous is thrilled about that flavor!

This dessert is a true game changer!

Breakfast Sunrise Bagelwiches

Let’s be real here, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Kickstart your morning deliciously with this Breakfast Sunrise Bagelwich! Toasted bagel topped with avocado slices, crispy bacon, dippy egg and a to-die-for spread!

So I love breakfast foods. Actually no, I lurve them to the point I’ll often eat “breakfast foods” for lunch and dinner. And let me preface that by what I deem “breakfast” food as I now a few that loathe ‘breakfasty’ type things. Sorry but we just can’t be friends…(j/k). Breakfast foods are eggs, bacon, waffles, pancakes, cereal, oatmeal and so forth. While I’ve been known to eat stuffed shells or roast beef with mashed potatoes at breakfast time I still want ‘real’ breakfast foods. However, there’s nothing wrong if you eat the non-breakfasty things but how can you not like the real stuff? This, I don’t get. I mean I get if you hate eggs or pancakes. But bacon?  Dude… that’s just not cool. To say you hate bacon is like saying you hate kittens or babies. But regardless it’s your right to hate it but um, can I have your share?

I’m also going to go on the record that this bagelwich is not something I eat every day nor recommend most folks do either as let’s face it – it’s seriously hearty. For me, this is my “cheat day” breakfast. But if you wanted to eat it every day first off, I’m jealous that you can, but secondly, enjoy! But full disclosure if I’m craving these daily I’ll actually buy the mini bagels or the thinly sliced bagels and eat those. This way I don’t feel as guilty eating a huge bagel every single day. My thighs thank me for this; yours would too I assume.

Get your breakfast YUM on with this delicious bagelwich!

Veggie Sweet Potato Garden Burgers

Whether you’re a veggie-loving beast or full on meat-craving carnivore these Veggie Sweet Potato Garden Burgers will definitely please! Meatless Monday never tasted so delicious!

Veggie burgers are not a ‘new’ thing yet in the past 3 or so years they’ve become a menu regular. Heck, there are some restaurants that only serve veggie burgers. It’s funny how I actually more often will order a veggie burger than a regular burger these days. I’m not a vegetarian and still love meat but there’s just something intriguing about these things. You wouldn’t expect a veggie burger to be juicy or packed with so much flavor yet they are.

I mean just look at my Chunky Portabello veggie burger. That single burger recipe has bridged the gap between salad heads and meat beasts; both teams love them. Vegetarians absolutely love the fact that you have a burger that is hearty, packed with a bajillion veggies and that is seriously the “best damn veggie burger” out there. And meat lovers…don’t get me started!  Their minds are blown by the fact that they are eating a burger that tastes so much like beef (or a real burger as they’d say) but is made with all veggies. I mean I had some guy argue til he was blue in the face that there was no way anyone could make a veggie burger taste delicious let alone tastes like a ‘real burger’. One bite and I shut him up.

Now before I go any further I should disclose that there is one person that doesn’t like this – Mr. Fantabulous. He doesn’t quite “get” the whole non-meat thing and swears if I try to turn him vegetarian he’s moving out.  For him, honestly, it’s a textural thing I thing as most veggie burgers are a tad more ‘creamy’ in the center. Sure you’ll have chunks of veggies but you never get that same texture as you would with meat. Challenge for me? Perhaps but honestly it’s not that big of a deal and hey if he doesn’t like it, it’s just more for me.

Get your deliciousness on!
