This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BBQWeek. I received product samples from sponsors to use in creating #BBQWeek recipes. However, all opinions are mine alone.

Crisp green stalks of fresh asparagus are a staple of the Spring and Summer grilling season. This Grilled Caesar Asparagus is a perfect side dish to any grilled entree, or a light healthy meal all on it’s own.

Crispy Honey Shrimp with Candied Walnuts

This dish. The one that my husband calls, that one time, at that super nice Asian restaurant when I picked up my plate with every intention of licking it clean. Sluurrrrrp. No shame, none at all. Not an ounce. Well, just enough for me to regain my composure with my plate hovering in the air, mid-way to my mouth. #sorrynotsorry And you won’t be sorry either once you get a taste of this irresistible shrimp.

Cheesy Sloppy Joe Hotdogs

Have you ever noticed how having kids, or caring for kids, or really just being exposed to kids on a regular basis forces you to revisit, and often rediscover, classic dishes from your own childhood? Especially when my guys were little, or going through their individual ‘picky palate’ stages, I’d have to get creative, and often the simplest answer was to call Mom and asked what the hell she had made that we would actually eat during those same trying times. And wouldn’t you know, almost every time the same things worked for me and my boys, like hot dogs and sloppy joes. But over the years we’ve all grown up (how much is often debatable 😉 ), and while we haven’t exactly outgrown these favorites, we’ve found them growing right along with us. Think of it as revisiting, and revitalizing the classics. And that’s how the Cheesy Sloppy Dog was born. And. It. Was. Glorious. And, of course, cheesy and messy enough in all its glory to be whole-heartedly embraced by both our emerging adult-selves and our inner child.
