Happy Friday to you all!
I am so sorry I haven’t been around for the past few days (well, 12 days, so WordPress tells me). Summer is my busiest season at work, and socially. So as a result, my little blog project has taken a back seat to real life. However, that doesn’t mean I’m not working on some things for you!
As I have been struggling with a creativity block the past little bit, I’ve been looking for inspiration in new places, and have been buying magazines and dusting off cookbooks to try and ignite some ideas. I did pick up a Better Homes and Gardens special edition magazine recently, and it has been a treasure trove for me! I used a few recipes from the magazine to make some side dishes for a recent camping trip, and they were all a huge success.
I don’t believe in messing with a good thing, so I will share some of these recipes with you, straight from the people who created them! These three delicious dishes are easy to make, can feed quite a few people, and don’t take long to throw together. I made these three dishes, plus my Tomato Salad and a Spinach Dip in about four hours (plus packing, etc). I’m not the fastest cook around, so I found that to be pretty good when you considered how much food I made. When you have a fabulous destination to spend your weekend, you don’t want to spend a beautiful day on prepping a ton of food! So, without further ado, here are my three favourite BBQ side dishes!
- Broccoli Salad – via Jam Hands
- Caramel Apple Snickers Salad – via Potpourri Mommy
- Classic Potato Salad – via Better Homes and Gardens
Of course, I can’t go without changing some ingredients in the recipes (you guys know me…) but for the most part the recipes as provided are what I worked from, and left things out/added things as I wanted.
I hope these links make it into your favourites rotation this summer, as I think they are complete summer classics. Plus, the Caramel Apple Snickers Salad is a light, and delicious dessert that may be unexpected, but will quickly become a highly requested favourite.
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend and I hope to have some original content ready for you soon!
