Tennessee Burger with Bourbon and BBQ Sauce

Burgers are a go-to meal in the summer months.   I'm always looking for new ways to make them more interesting.     This recipe in Cooking Light caught my eye.    My only subs were white onions for the red, 85/15 ground beef and I used a whole slice of bacon on each.     I knew that there was no possibility of the kid giving the toppings a try, but was very surprised when my husband passed too.    I thought the sauce was excellent and the onions and bacon gave the burger some nice layers of flavor.    Photos taken with my cellphone and definitely not representative of how great the burger looked.                         * Exported from MasterCook *                Tennessee Burger with Bourbon and BBQ Sauce   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method --------  ------------  --------------------------------   3                     bacon slices   1           teaspoon  extra-virgin olive oil   3               cups  vertically sliced red onion- used white

Strawberry Chocolate Yogurt Pops

  Last year I ordered some awesome popsicle molds through amazon.   Now I'm wishing I bought 2 sets!   So many great recipes out there, and I love being able to use in season fruit or make something to suit our mood.        This time around, I decided to use some of our local picked strawberries and make these Strawberry Chocolate Yogurt Pops.   I found them on the Lemon Drop blog via Foodgawker   :) I had gotten yogurt on sale and had about 20 in the fridge, so I used Yoplait Light Strawberry Shortcake flavor.   Mine stayed a beautiful dark red.    I also used Nestle Mini chips since I had them on hand.    Depending on how sweet your berries are you could definitely cut back the sugar. These really hit the spot last night!   Thank you to Linda at Lemon Drop, be sure to go check out her blog   :) popsicles, kid friendly, strawberry, chocolate Desserts, frozen treats American Print With Image Without Image Strawberry Chocolate Yogurt Pops Ingredients 3 cups fresh chopped straw
