With summer upon us, it is time to start enjoying some refreshing cocktails out by the barbecue. Nothing says barbecue like bourbon, so we created a cocktail that is a twist on a classic. We substituted bourbon for the gin in a Tom Collins and came out with a winner. If you are looking for a light and refreshing bourbon cocktail, this is your recipe.

For Christmas I received a Blackstone Griddle. It is the most used gift that I have ever received. I cook everything on it, from Japanese steakhouse fried rice to smash burgers. We love fried rice so much that I decided to come up with a recipe to go along with some Fajitas. I combined some tomato sauce, chiles and seasonings to make some of the most delicious fried rice that I have ever had. It is a huge hit at our house!
Every holiday season, my neighbor bakes us a delicious rum cake. While I am not usually a fan of rum cake, I really love this one. I had to ask my neighbor the secret to her awesome rum cake. She said the key was to use “the cheapest rum you can find”. This is totally my kind … Read moreRum Cake

This dish utilizes a fully cooked ham that you smoke and reheat on your grill or smoker. It is so delicious!

The one that jumped to our attention first was the Apple Rum Sauce. Who could pass up a combination like fruit and alcohol?! You know we love our fruit and alcohol here on the blog…well without the fruit, haha. The thought of a sweet apple flavor with a nice kick from rum sounded like a winner! Check out our review below.
