Grown up Root Beer Floats

Date day today and my husband finished his midterms.   We decided a nice adult beverage was in order.  I've seen this one floating around facebook, but no specific recipe attached.

For each serving, we used a 12oz can of Barq's, 1 1/2 oz Vanilla Vodka and a large scoop of Edy's Vanilla Bean ice cream.     Sooo good!



Tennessee Burger with Bourbon and BBQ Sauce

Image
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.

Baked Coconut Chicken fingers with Sweet & Spicy Orange Dipping Sauce

Time feels like it is on fast forward.  School winding down, my new niece is due soon, my husband is a few weeks into another semester of school.     I tried this recipe last week, made my notes, took my pictures and then never got around to sitting at the computer to write it up.

Both the guys loved this, and I thought the dipping sauce took it from good to great.    No big changes to the chicken itself, I had no eggs so used buttermilk.    For the sauce, the original recipe called for apricot preserves, but all I had was orange marmalade.  

Definitely going in the family favorites binder!    Big thanks to the ladies of Six Sisters' Stuff for sharing these  :)
