Labor Day is this weekend and I’m sure many of you are looking for some fun new recipes for your weekend get together. So I thought I’d share some easy, delicious, crowd pleasing recipes for you:

Queso Bacon Burgers with Avocado Salsa is my new favorite burger. It’s a juicy, messy, burger, loaded with great Mexican flavors.

Bacon Wrapped Cheese Hot Dogs

Bacon Wrapped Cheese Hot Dogs – come together in no time and are a great way to kick it up a notch if you’re grilling dogs this weekend.


A taco bar is a great way to feed a crowd and lets everyone make their taco just the way they want it. Pressure Cooker Chicken Taco Filling, Shredded Pork Tacos, Carne Asada Tacos, Cafe Rio Sweet Pork Barbacoa Salad.


Chicken Apple Salad with Candied Walnuts – the candied walnuts are easy to make in a skillet and take the salad from ordinary to wow.


Perfect Pasta Salad – a guide to creating your perfect pasta salad.


Strawberry Mango Salsa and Cinnamon Tortilla Chips – a great appetizer or side dish. I’ts fresh, colorful, light and refreshing.

Fresh Strawberry Pie

Fresh Strawberry Pie – my daughter’s favorite pie. She always wants it for Thanksgiving, but pick some strawberries up at the Farmer’s Market and see how amazing a strawberry pie can be.


Good For You Chocolate Pound Cake – this super easy, delicious recipe starts with a cake mix but its’ doctored up with applesauce to make it moist and healthy. If you prefer to make your cake from scratch, try Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake and Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Frosting.


Lemon and Berry Swirl Mini Cheesecakes – you can never go wrong with cheesecake for dessert. These mini cheesecakes already have the topping swirled on top, so they’re easy to make ahead and serve.

Have a great weekend!
