B’Que Bacon Sliders


I first saw this on Pioneer Woman (love her blog), and made these a while back.  I made them again last night – they are very easy, and very yummy.

I did change it a little….but not much.  For best results I used my broiler pan, which she does as well……LOVE THESE!!  SO many possiblities!

  • 2 pounds Ground Beef
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Pepper Or Other Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce  
  • Liquid smoke
  • 8 strips Thin/regular Bacon (a Pack or 2)
  • ¼ cups Barbecue Sauce
  • 8 slices (shavings) Cheese: Cheddar, Jack, Etc. (I used colby pepperjack)
  • 8 whole Dinner Rolls (or Slider Rolls)


Combine meat with all seasoning ingredients. Knead with hands to combine. Form into small-to-medium sized balls.

Cut slices of bacon in half lengthwise. Wrap one half around ball of hamburger, pulling slightly to keep taut. Smooth to secure seam. Repeat with other half of bacon, ending seam in the same place.

Place patties, bacon seam side down, on a baking pan with a drip tray sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Press gently on each patty to flatten as much as you can without squeezing meat out of the edges. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes to firm.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.    Preheat to 350

Brush each patty liberally with barbecue sauce. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until bacon is cooked to your specifications.

Remove from oven and lay a cheese shaving on each patty. Serve on a roll with your choice of toppings/condiments.




I have really been loving all the cute little girl hair styles that I have been finding around the pinning world……

SO cute for Valentine’s Day!  So easy to do – you can easily add a ribbon to it!!  You just make your pony tail….flip the hair back through – divide.  You can braid or not braid – your choice!!



I love shoes, but what doesn’t right??  I really do have an obession……it’s bad – I have a LOT of shoes!  I just cannot help myself 🙂  My hubby actually got me these…and I love them.

I feel a little on the sassy side when I wear them 😉

It’s getting a lil’ hairy :-)


Yes I know that was a little on the corny side, but that’s just how I roll….I have a very corny sense of humor 🙂

Again, Pinterest has so many cute ideas…..I feel like I have so much on my ‘to do’ list.  From recipes to crafts!!!  Now hair?  There is also a lot of make-up tricks I want to try, I mean come on…..I know I can get my eyes to look like those girls, right?!?!?

I did this cute little hair style on my daughter this weekend, we attended a birthday party – it turned out really cute!!


Then again on Sunday for church, she wanted me to do it…this time I added braides to it!!  I really think it turned out cute!!


Very easy…very simple!

French toast – muffin?


Oh yes I really do like…..LOVE both 🙂  I have actually made this before.  My son wanted some cinnamon rolls for breakfast – I didn’t have any, and I really didn’t want to make some from scratch (I actually have tried to do that yet, but Pioneer Woman has a fab one I want to try!). 

So I asked him how he would like it if I made some “french toast muffins” ??  I always add cinnamon – it’s one of his favorites!  So that is what I made.

I actaully made this not in my traditional muffin pan.  I also made a cinnamon roll ‘glaze’ to go over the top instead of syrup.  (Powder Sugar + Milk).  These were easy to make – and fun for kids.  You could easily pick these up and dip them in syrup if you wanted!

Poor eggs whites in a mixing bowl (or several eggs)

1 table spoon of vanilla

dash of milk

Cinnamon (to taste)


Bread – cut into pieces (depending on how much you are making – I used about 10 slices)

Mix eggs, vanilla, milk and cinnamon (with a fork).  Put in your bread pieces, make sure your bread is fully covered.  Put your pieces into your muffin tin – press down (not real tight).  Sprinkle extra cinnamon on top – sugar if you want…I did not do this. 

Bake at 350

Top with glaze or syrup

To make the glaze I put powder sugar into my blender and added milk – add to the consistancy that you wish – I like mine to be a little on the thick side.


Butterfinger Pie


Well this one was a yummy easy one to make – I saw it on Friday…and made it on Friday.  I just happened to have just about everything that I needed.


  1. 1Mix first three ingredients together.
  2. 2Put it in pie crust.
  3. 3Chill.

THIS….was absolutely delish – I will be making this again!
