These Taco Bacon Cheeseburgers could not be more perfect for your summer grilling. Packed with great flavor and stacked nice and tall, everyone loves them!
It’s always a pleasure partnering with Old El Paso to bring you new Mexican-style recipes. I’ve developed a giant cheeseburger that is so flavorful, it’s about to become your new favorite burger. Love having Old El Paso taco seasoning on hand for simple weeknight dinners. We use it in so many great recipes.
Isn’t grilling season the best? So fun spending time outside, swimming and grilling with family and friends. Even though it’s so warm in Arizona, we still take advantage of this great time of year! Bring on the grilling recipes!
Simple ingredients to get started!
Add the taco seasoning to the ground beef.
A nice pinch of salt and pepper too.
Form into four patties and place onto a hot grill. Indoor or outdoor works just fine.
Cook for 4-5 minutes each side and flip.
During the last two minutes of grilling, top with cheese.
Toast your buns 🙂
Mix more taco seasoning with mayonnaise.
Spread onto cut side of buns.
Layer with lettuce leaf and burger.
Add tomato slices, cilantro leaves and bacon slices.
Close with top lid and get ready to dig in!
Definitely shareable 🙂 Enjoy!

These Chocolate Raspberry Yogurt Parfaits are perfect for afternoon snacks or even great on a brunch menu!
It’s always a pleasure partnering with Similac Go & Grow Mix-Ins to bring you a new recipe packed with some extra nutrition. I put together a yogurt parfait with some of my favorite flavors and ingredients that the kids love. The chocolate and raspberries go so nicely together plus the granola layer adds a “pie” like crunch in every bite.
This is a great recipe to get the kids in kitchen to help. The whole family will enjoy this recipe!
Here are the ingredients you’ll need to get started for your parfaits.
We have been loving Similac Go & Grow Mix-Ins. I’ve been adding the packets to so many different recipes for added nutrition for Pax. Really convenient.
Each single-serve powder packet has OptiGro, a unique blend of DHA, lutein and vitamin E that supports brain, eye and overall growth and development. Mix-Ins also offers protein, fiber and essential vitamins and minerals. Mix-Ins are available at all major retailers. Visit Similac Website HERE for free samples (while supplies last).

Add your Go and Grow Mix-Ins to the yogurt. Stir well.
Layer the yogurt to the bottom of your parfait glasses.
Granola up next.
Layer your raspberries over the granola.
Sprinkle some chocolate chips over the raspberries.
Top with another spoon of yogurt, granola, a raspberry and chocolate chips. Perfect!
Serve your parfaits chilled. You can refrigerate up to an hour before serving. Note that waiting to serve much longer than one hour, the granola gets soft.

This Chocolate Covered Cookie Peanut Butter Milkshake is over the top and so fun to share with your favorite person!
What a pleasure partnering with Hershey’s today to bring you a new recipe. I thought what better way to use Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup than inside a fun milkshake. Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup is a sweet and simple take on the Hershey’s classic, now made with five simple ingredients. It contains no fructose corn syrup or artificial colors and flavors.
Hershey’s brings back such great memories of my childhood. Takes me back to movie nights with my family and friends while getting comfy on the couch with popcorn and ice cream. I can vividly remember being in the kitchen giggling with my girlfriends drizzling Hershey’s syrup over our ice cream while talking about school, boys and our plans for the evening.
