bacon barbecued chicken kebabs

Looking at these grilled chicken kebabs you’d never guess that bacon comes into play.  But since I had practically a whole package of bacon left from the grilled cheese and bacon potatoes, I decided to try this unique chicken kebab recipe.  And actually the way you prepare the bacon was quite weird to me.

I’ve never heard of making a paste with bacon before but what the heck, I thought I’d give it a try.  Once you make the bacon and spice paste, you rub it onto the raw chicken kebabs before grilling.  Then as you grill, baste the chicken kebabs with the homemade barbecue sauce.

These are some really good grilled chicken kebabs.  The bacon and the smoked paprika give them a great smokey flavor while the barbecue sauce gives them some zippy tang.

This recipe does take a good amount of prep work but you’ll find the taste is well worth it.  Next time I make them, I may skip the kebab prep portion and just use whole chicken breasts.

cheese and bacon grilled potatoes

I’d say that any recipe that starts with cheese and bacon has got to be a hit.  And these grilled potatoes are no exception.  They were amazing!  Perfectly cooked and the bacon, cheese and butter gives them fabulous flavor.

If you’ve ever been to the Texas Roadhouse restaurant, their “cheese fries” appetizer is one of our favorites.  These potatoes tasted just like them!  They have just about the same exact taste except theirs are made with steak fries and mine are made with fresh potatoes.  Yum!

homemade cake batter ice creamAnyone who’s never tasted cake batter ice cream can’t begin to imagine what they’re missing.  It’s a delicious vanilla flavor ten steps above plain old vanilla.  And just like the name describes, it has a vanilla cake flavor to it also.

Over the years I’ve tried quite a few different brands of ice cream in this flavor.  Most of them have been good but nothing compares to this homemade recipe.  I don’t know why it never occurred to me that cake batter ice cream would actually have cake batter in it.  But it does!

This ice cream tastes amazing!  It has a much deeper cake batter flavor than any store bought I’ve had.  And it’s super smooth and creamy.

I know one thing, I’ll never buy store bought cake batter ice cream ever again.  I will only make it by hand in the future.  I’m even thinking of trying a few different cake batter flavors like butter pecan, lemon and strawberry.

urban decay 15th anniversary palette

A little less than a month ago, Urban Decay unveiled their new 15th anniversary eyeshadow collection.  This eyeshadow palette consists of 15 brand new, never seen before eyeshadow colors.  Once it debuted on the internet, they went like hotcakes.  In a matter of just a few hours, Urban Decay’s website was sold out!

I was one of the pour souls left crying in the corner because I just missed getting my hands on one.  I had to settle for putting my email address on a waiting list hoping and praying that they’d release more soon.

All the following week I spent my afternoon stalking Ulta and Sephora’s websites hoping that they’d make an appearance.  I knew I had to act fast though, cause they surely wouldn’t last long.  To my utter excitement, a week later Ulta came through for me.
