Fully Loaded Baked Potato Skins #SundaySupper

Fully Loaded Baked Potato Skins #SundaySupper
This post is sponsored by the Idaho Potato Commission in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.

This weeks Sunday Supper theme is Potato Appetizers using Idaho® potatoes so I knew I had to share our favorite Fully Loaded Baked Potato Skins.
We love Fully Loaded Baked Potato Skins because they are hearty, easy to make and perfect finger food as a appetizer, for a crowd or a light dinner.
I like to lightly salt the potatoes before baking for maximum flavor and the filling options are endless.
On this occasion we stuck with a traditional Fully Loaded Baked Potato Skin because you can never go wrong with melty cheese, crispy bacon with a large dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of chives in a crispy lightly salted potato skin and if this is wrong I don't want to be right! 
Another favorite filling idea is taco seasoned ground beef, cheese, sour cream, avocado and salsa.
Just for the record I've never met a potato skin I didn't like!

Chocolate Strawberry Poke Cake

Chocolate Strawberry Poke Cake | www.serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com
This one goes out to all my chocolate strawberry lovers out there..
You know who you are! 
I was craving strawberries and chocolate the other day so I decided to combined the topping from this  Strawberry Shortcake Poke Cake and this Moist Chocolate Cake to create the perfect Chocolate Strawberry Poke Cake.
Moist chocolate cake with fresh strawberry filling pushed into the holes and covering the top, refrigerated to allow the strawberry flavor to permeate the cake and take it to the next level then I covered the cake in whip cream because we all know whip cream is always a good thing.
It's easy enough to make for dessert for the family but fun enough to serve at your next gathering or party! 
The only bad thing is it won't last long!

Bacon Wrapped Balsamic Marinated Sirloin Filet #SundaySupper #GrillTalk

Bacon Wrapped Balsamic Marinated Sirloin Filet is a must make on the grill!

This post is sponsored by Certified Angus Beef in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.
This week Sunday Supper is celebrating Dad with Certified Angus Beef® brand and Summer Grilling  Recipes.
In honor of one of the most amazing Dad in my life I used a Certified Angus Beef® brand sirloin steak, marinated it in a rosemary garlic balsamic mixture and then wrapped it in bacon because the two things I know Colt truly loves to eat is a really good steak and bacon.
Then Colt took over and grilled the steaks to perfection! 
Bacon Wrapped Balsamic Marinated Sirloin Filet will be a summer staple with the warmer weather and the perfect steak to celebrate Colt.
He's always so selfless with our kids and works so hard to teach the boys how to be truly good men.
I love watching him teach the kids how to build or fix stuff and he always takes the time to play Lego's, video games, basketball or whatever else the kids want to do.
I find the little bit of time he invests in our kids is always returned 10 folds and makes my job of being a Mom a little bit easier.
I highly suggest using Certified Angus Beef® brand sirloin for this recipe because it is the best Angus beef available on the market and is more selective than USDA Choice or Prime.
They raise their beef to be amazingly tender, juicy and full of flavor.
We had also tried a strip steak and I can honestly say both steaks were a cut above the rest. 
Worthy of a special occasion but perfect for any night of the week.
