Up your appetizer game with these easy and delicious glazed Bacon & Havarti Puff Pastry Bites #appetizer #puffpastry #bacon #easyappetizers

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own.


Are you a football fan? Are you getting excited about The Big Game? It’s just around the corner and will be here before we know it. I’ll admit I like to watch the game in the comfort of my own home, or even better, at a friend’s home that just so happens to have a ginormous television. Homegating. It’s where it’s at.

If you haven’t heard of homegating, I’ll let you in on the not-so-secret. Homegating is just tailgating in the comfort of your own home. Did you know that tailgating is an American pastime, dating back to 1869? Yes, it’s been around for a very, very long time.  If you ask, most people will tell you (unless they have season tickets on the 50 yard line) that they prefer to homegate rather than tailgate while they’re cheering on their favorite team.

Tomato Tuna Melt #tuna #tunamelt #glutenfree #lowcarb #tomatoesTomato Tuna Melt.

This is a mash up between a tuna melt and a stuffed tomato. Sometimes mash ups work and sometimes not so much, but this one, it’s a keeper. If you love tuna melts and are looking for a way to cut back on your bread consumption (I know I just gasped typing that – I big puffy heart bread, I just need to eat less of it) we’ve got an alternative for you.

These perfectly plump tomatoes on the vine are stuffed with wild albacore tuna, black pearl rice and a whole lot of gloriously melty Gruyere and mozzarella cheese.

How To Make Champagne Jello Shots

Dec 31, 17 How To Make Champagne Jello Shots

When your early 20's jello shots get a makeover - Champagne Jello Shots #jelloshots #champagne #shots #cheers How to Make Champagne Jello Shots.

You know those jello party shots that you were introduced to in college? The ones that were in the small paper cups that you would squeeze into your mouths. Have too many of because you didn’t think they were strong. Until they snuck up on you and you realized they were indeed strong. These are the same ones just with a more grown up appearance because we can’t all stay in college forever. Well there’s that one friend, there’s always that one friend who doesn’t grow up. Sigh.

Also before the champagne police come around I used sparkling wine for this recipe. Don’t think I could bring myself to make these with actual champagne. That’s for sipping on properly, with your pinkies up. Duh.

Are you looking for an impressive scallop dish? You’ve found it. We’re going to show you How To Make Scallops Coquilles St. Jacques.

The classic French preparation of scallops in a creamy sauce, under a crust of cheese. Nothing about that sounds bad right? These big, bold and beautiful sea scallops are served in small shallow dishes and are the perfect start to a meal. If you’re like me and absolutely go bonkers for scallops you may want to increase the portion and make it into an entree. No shame in my scallop game.

Coquilles is the French word for scallops. Everything sounds better in romance languages amiright? Point. I’m serving Coquilles St. Jacques or I’m serving gratineed scallops. Right.
