Bacon Cheddar Cheeseburger with Onion Jam and Garlic Aioli Recipe

We are well into the summer season, and that means its time to get our #GrillNGear.  Many of us love attending a good BBQ, but often times we shy away from hosting because it can seem daunting and overwhelming.  If that's you, FEAR NO MORE!  Today I'm partnering with Giant Eagle to show you that with a few store bought items, quality ingredients, and some simple homemade tricks, you will be hosting the summer soiree that everyone will be talking about and my Bacon Cheddar Cheeseburgers with Onion Jam and Garlic Aioli are why!  I'm sharing all my secrets, so get ready!

First things first though, let's head to the store.  

Many of the items I purchased at Giant Eagle, in the grocery aisle.

Even though Giant Eagle is sponsoring this post, I'm not lying when I say that I feel they have one of the best meat departments in my area.  I can always find fresh, quality, cuts of meat as well as creative things such as these gorgeous Certified Angus Beef Gourmet Bacon Cheeseburger Patties.  The chunks of cheddar and bacon in these things were huge, and I KNEW it was going to make a great burger.

After that I grabbed some Pepsi, Hellmann's, Pepperidge Farm Farmhouse Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies, and a few items from the deli.  That's the beauty of a great BBQ, you don't have to have anything fancy, just one show stopping item, and yummy things for everyone to munch on.   Now its time to head out and get this #GrillNGear show on the road!  I can't wait to share the recipe with you so...

I find inspiration for recipes from everywhere.  For example I was on the phone with my friend Zak, and we were talking about the restaurant at The Greenbrier, and luxury resort in White Sulphur Springs, WV.  He was telling me that they have these Horseradish Mashed Potatoes that are out of this world!  


As soon as the words came out of his mouth I KNEW this was something I had to try, and I immediately went to my kitchen to start creating.  I can't wait to share this with you so...

Studhub's Steakhouse Meatloaf Recipe

There's an ongoing joke in my house that if my husband isn't nice to me, I won't cook for him.  However, the reality is my husband is actually a very good cook.  One of the things I love most about him in the kitchen is that he's so adventurous!  He loves to explore and experiment with different things, and I am always BLOWN AWAY with what he comes up with. His greatest triumph to date is this Steakhouse Meatloaf.

People LOVE a good crock-pot meal, but I have a confession to make.

This Crock-Pot Peppers and Steak Recipe is a new family favorite of ours.


Big on flavor and relatively inexpensive to make I know you and your family are going to love this meal so...

Perfect No-Oil Oven Fries Recipe

I've never met a potato I didn't like.  Seriously, I love them.  In the words of Samwise Gamgee "fry em, boil em, put em in a stew." Yeah, I'm there.  And if you're someone who doesn't like potatoes I think we may need to reevaluate our friendship.  I'm kidding, but honestly?  ANYWHO, back to potatoes.  At the top of my potato love list is fries.  Yes, I LOVE a good fry.  And now I can indulge in these naughty treats absolutely GUILT-FREE with my Perfect No-Oil Oven Fries.
