This easy fudgy recipe for Chocolate Bundt Cake has a moist and delicious texture. It's covered with a chocolate glaze to take it over the top. It's easily the BEST Chocolate Cake recipe that is perfect for your next party or celebration.

I ordered a new large Bundt Cake pan a few weeks back and knew the first recipe would be a moist homemade Chocolate Bundt Cake. 

It started with my Moist Chocolate Cake recipe with a couple of adjustments like sour cream instead of buttermilk to give it that fudgy texture that is a must for a bundt cake. I also had to make some adjustments to get a tall enough cake for my 12 cup bundt pan.

Colt has already put in the request for this to be his Birthday Chocolate Cake this year and every year in the future.. Only time will tell if he changes this request down the road but it is definitely one of the BEST Chocolate Bundt Cake recipes I've ever made! 

Raspberry Margaritas

A pitcher of Handmade Raspberry Margaritas made with fresh ingredients is an impressive cocktail recipe everyone loves.

We made a pitcher of these Raspberry Margaritas way back at Cinco De Mayo, but I think they would be a hit for 4th of July!  

They are an absolute favorite for summertime barbecues, parties or just to enjoy on the back patio to kick off the weekend.

I mean who doesn't love an easy Pitcher Margarita recipe? They are absolutely delicious! 

The best part of these Raspberry Margaritas is they can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge. Just add ice to the glasses instead of the pitcher when serving.

It's definitely a favorite pitcher cocktail recipe for summer entertaining along with Peach Whiskey Iced Tea, Strawberry Grapefruit Iced Tea, Spiked Blackberry Lemonade, and Slushy Mango Margaritas

Grilled Cheese and Black Forest Ham Sandwich

Monday, April 3, 2023
The iconic Grilled Cheese Sandwich taken to a whole new level with this Loaded Sharp Cheddar and Black Forest Ham Grilled Cheese Sandwich. This Grilled Cheese Sandwiches is kicked up a notch with bacon, sliced tomatoes, dijon mustard, avocado, red onion, and pepperoncinis. 

These Fancy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are grilled open face to toast the bread and melt the cheese but making it possible to top with lettuce at the end for texture.

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are the  coziest of comfort foods that evokes nostalgic early childhood memories from the smell of the bread browning in the butter to the taste of the strings of melted cheesy goodness.

I decided to share our favorite Loaded Sharp Cheddar and Black Forest Ham Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

We just happened to take a really good thing and give it one heck of an upgrade. It takes the iconic American Grilled Cheese Sandwich to a whole new level and just happens to be the most requested sandwich in our house.

Colt's been making this sandwich for the last few years as a lunch, quick weeknight staple or late night snack. It's filling enough alone, served with Homemade JoJo's or perfect with a bowl Tomato Soup.
You just can't go wrong however you serve it.

Bacon has become a newer addition to our sandwich because everything's better with bacon and is totally optional but it does add an incredible smokiness that can't be beat. We also started using a little mashed avocado instead of mayo for health reasons and we prefer the flavor. If onions or pepperoncini aren't your thing just leave them out.  

The great thing about this sandwich is it can be customized however you like. You can never go wrong with a Loaded Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
