Bacon Wrapped BBQ Cheddar Dogs #SecretRecipeClub

Well hello there.  Yes, I am here with my 4th Secret Recipe Club post this month (see the first, second, & third here)!  In SRC members are secretly assigned another blog, make something delicious from that blog and post on reveal day!

Today is a pretty special SRC day!  Since there are 5 Mondays this month, we’re bringing you a SRC Tailgating special!  We’re crossing our usual group lines and revealing mouthwatering tailgating recipes to get you all ready for football season!

For this special reveal, I was assigned Kelly’s blog, Wildflour’s Cottage Kitchen.

Kelly is a stay at home wife with years of amazing kitchen and publishing experience!  In fact, we’re both Taste of Home Field Editors!  Kelly was also just assigned my blog for the reveal earlier this month and totally improved on my recipe for Pesto Meatball Subs!

Kelly has so many amazing recipes on her blog – I was absolutely drooling as I searched for the perfect tailgating treat.  And it didn’t take long until I found Cheese Filled Bacon Wrapped Game Day Barbecue Beefdogs.  It was all over from there!  I adore making Bacon Wrapped Beer Brats and couldn’t wait to try it out with hot dogs, cheddar and BBQ sauce!

Loaded Skillet Potatoes

If you’re following me on Instagram, you might have seen this picture from when I dug up my potato plants.

That’s 10 pounds of potatoes!  We’re a meat & potatoes kind of family, so that is absolutely fantastic! 

Dude & Spud love crispy skillet potatoes (I’ve convinced them that they’re just like French fries) and I love me some baked potatoes, so I came up with a sort of hybrid dish that everyone could enjoy (plus I didn’t have to turn on the oven when it was 95 degrees!)

Crockpot Spicy Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork

I love using the crockpot this time of year!  It’s such a great way to cook those yummy roasts without heating up the house!

Today’s recipe is a super delicious, slightly sweet, a little bit spicy pulled pork!  After cooking all day with the Dr. Pepper and spices, the pork is so flavorful and tender!

Easy Chicken Parmesan


So this isn’t *really* chicken parmesan.

It was just some leftover pasta I was trying to reinvigorate, so I added chicken to the top and called it chicken parmesan to make my kids eat it.  I wasn’t planning on blogging it at all.

Then my boys took their first bites as I finished preparing the salad and Spud exclaimed, “Mom!  This is so yummy!  You have to blog it!”

Well, how couldn’t I blog it with an endorsement like that?!?

Salted Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

Can a person have too many cookie recipes?

No.  No, I don’t think so.

Especially when they’re mega easy and involve chocolate and salted caramel.

There’s really no down side to these cookies.  Come on, you deserve a cookies today, right?

Frozen Dark Hot Chocolate

I’m back for another Secret Recipe Club Reveal today!  Earlier today an SOS went out to help out a fellow group C member who couldn’t post tonight, so here I am!

Today, I was assigned Sashi’s blog, Get Off the Couch and Cook.  She may seem familiar, because I jumped in to help back in January and made her delicious Chicken BLT.  Sashi’s goal is to make homemade foods (without processed products) in the time it takes to order a pizza.

We’re just coming off a heat wave, so I chose to make a cool sweet treat!  Today’s recipe is an amazing frozen hot chocolate!  It uses all those yummy hot chocolate ingredients, but blended with ice for all of the flavor and none of the heat!  Spud in particular was ecstatic about this recipe!  I could barely keep him out of the photo!
