Skillet Peach Cobbler #CookoutWeek

Nothing says Southern to me more than my heavy cast iron skillet. I have created so many yummy dishes and food memories with it and it never disappoints! To start off this special week- both my birthday and CookoutWeek- I wanted to share one of my very favorite desserts. Peach Cobbler is on the menu today after we picked peaches this past weekend in hill country. This simple yet decadent dessert is filled with fresh picked fruit and baked in a cast iron skillet until bubbling.Top with ice cream for a delicious summer treat!

#CookoutWeek 2018 is here!  

During the next week, I am joining over 50 of my blogger friends to celebrate summer by posting delicious cookout-themed recipes. If you love grilling, frozen treats, picnics, berries, s'mores, campfire meals, and other summer goodies... you are in the right place! This week, we are also hosting a HUGE giveaway thanks to our generous #CookoutWeek sponsors. Enter below to win.

Chef Salad on a Stick


I love fun food and what is more fun than food on a stick, right? We enjoyed dinner on the patio tonight and I made a platter of Chef Salad on a Stick skewers for us to eat. They were simple to make and tasted great- even my toddler was excited to eat salad, y'all! Serve with a side of dressing for dipping and enjoy!

In honor of Buddig's 75th Anniversary they are having a #ThankYouMealMaker video contest. I made this fun dish, Chef Salad on a Stick, inspired by my Meal Makers, my parents, who always made fun food for me to try growing up!
Check out my latest video and see who I thanked for being my Meal Makers.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwiches #MasterSummer

This post is sponsored by Tyson, Unilever, and Ball Park Buns products. 
All opinions are mine.
It is finally warm and sunny outside and that means we spend a whole lot of time in our backyard. Whether we are grilling, gardening, partying, or playing we love being outside in our yard having fun in the sunshine. Today I am sharing my Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwiches, which are the perfect summertime messy but good meal to serve at your backyard parties all season long!

We love entertaining in our backyard and now that the weather is warm and the Texas sun is out we are ready to entertain. We love grilling but sometimes I like to use my slow cooker or oven to bake a simple family meal and we enjoy eating with friends and family on our backyard patio. Then, of course, we have s'mores in our fire pit! That's my idea of a perfect summer meal!
