Try to say that five times fast. It’s a mouthful and so is this burger. Just don’t try to say it while eating this burger. That wouldn’t be pretty. No wants to see that. Amiright?

Inspiration for recipes comes in various forms. The inspiration for this burger came from a burger joint. I was eating at Red Robin a few weeks ago. They had a bacon brie burger on the menu. I’m a sucker for brie so I ordered it. Not going to lie, the burger went to flavor town and took up residence. In case you’re wondering, this is NOT a sponsored post. Red Robin has no clue who I am (other than a satisfied customer). I paid for the burger and enjoyed it SO much that I knew I had to create my version of it.

I’m super happy I did and I think you will be too.

Keto Chocolate Chip Fat Bombs

Me and cookie dough go way back. I’ve been crushing hard since childhood on that sweet dough. I can never yield exactly how many cookies a recipe calls for because I’m forever snacking on the dough. It’s a price I’m willing to pay. If you love chocolate chip cookie dough like I do, I think you’ll love these Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fat Bombs.

These fat bombs are even egg free, for those that are concerned about eating raw cookie dough. Did I mention they’re NO BAKE? As if they couldn’t get any better they just did. Just a little mixing and scooping and you’ll have snacks that are perfect for grabbing when you’re wanting something sweet to satisfy cravings.

I think I may actually like these a little too much as I’ve made this recipe so many times I can do it from memory now. Good thing they’re high in healthy fat and low in carbs so I don’t have to feel too guilty about it.

Bourbon Cherry Cobbler

Aug 27, 18 Bourbon Cherry Cobbler

Bourbon Cherry Cobbler is an easy Southern skillet dessert that takes advantage of fresh summer cherries. It’s given a little extra kick in the pants with my favorite brown water, bourbon. I like to serve my Bourbon Cherry Cobbler warm with a scoop of fresh vanilla bean ice cream. How do you like your cobbler?

Bourbon Cherry Cobbler

I’ve often wondered how many cobbler varieties there are, apparently I got sidetracked every single time because I still don’t have the answer. Something shiny on Amazon was probably the culprit. I happen to love cobbler and love experimenting with different flavors.

Cobbler is a down home dessert that’s easy to put together, goes with almost any meal and is perfect for feeding a crowd. The first cobbler I fell in love with was my MOMMA’S PEACH COBBLER. It’s the standard that I measure all cobblers from. It’s also the base for this bourbon cherry cobbler recipe.

This post is sponsored by The Frozen Garden. Opinions are my own. NOTE: In case it wasn’t obvious with the word boozy in the title these popsicles are intended for the 21 and over crowd. If you’d like to make a family friendly version you can omit the alcohol.

Smoothies are something we’re all familiar with. They’re delicious and filling. Problem is though, sometimes you just don’t know how much of which ingredients to combine together to create that perfect combination. It’s all about balance.

Keto Avocado Stuffed Chicken

Jul 23, 18 Keto Avocado Stuffed Chicken

Keto Avocado Stuffed Chicken could just as easily be called guacamole chicken. Juicy chicken breasts filled with creamy avocado. Rolled, dunked then dredged in crushed pork rinds making it low carb and keto friendly. It’s all topped off with a creamy cheese sauce that brings the whole dish together. Easy enough for any weeknight meal and elegant enough for entertaining.

Keto Avocado Stuffed Chicken. That’s what’s for dinner. It’s a low carb, avocado lovers dream dish. I give bonus points because you get to use the mallet and pound out the day’s frustrations, or you know, a mini arm workout, you decide. Giving extra meaning to winner winner chicken dinner if you ask me.

I’m one of those people that would live on an avocado farm if I could. I LOVE them. Ah to be able to have unlimited avocados every single day. Goals. When avocados are reasonably priced, because I’m not a Rockefeller, I buy as many as I can.

Then I need to be creative in the ways I use them, because I can only eat so many avocado toasts.

There’s just something about a grilled cheese sandwich, amiright? Grilled cheese sandwiches have come a long way from the plain grilled cheese of my childhood. Not that there’s anything wrong with those. They still hold a place for dunking into tomato bisque when I’m not feeling so hot. But these days so much more than just cheese is going into a grilled cheese sandwich.

A lot of thought goes into the bread, butter, cheese and yes the extra add ins. They run the gamut from mushrooms, to sun dried tomatoes to anything and everything in between. Grown up grilled cheese if you will.  If you can dream it (and it’s edible) chances are it’s been placed into a grilled cheese sandwich.
