Summer is nearly here and I couldn’t be more excited because that means we’ll be grilling a whole lot more now! Nothing is better than the smell of sizzling meat on the grill at about 6pm in the evening along with balmy summer weather in the air. However my all-time favorite part of grilling is that the cooking mess remains outside, leaving me less to clean in the kitchen when dinner is over.

Even though I try to keep my cooking mess to a minimum, I still usually like to make one or two sides to go with our grilled main course. Potato salad is one of the first things that comes to mind when you put the words “summer” and “bbq” together – so what better to share than an incredible potato salad that will have your guests begging you for the recipe!

When I was putting some ketchup in my cart at Walmart last week, I noticed the mustard that was nearby and decided to pick up a new bottle. I love mustard, but one of my pet peeves about it is the juice that comes out of the bottle before the actual mustard squeezes out, especially if I’m squeezing it directly on a piece of bread. Don’t you hate that? The New Heinz® Yellow Mustard bottle is designed to help stop some of that with it’s squeeze bottle design. Also, the fact that its a well known, well respected brand that has been around for more than 150 years with a unique flavor that’s second to none. I love the bold flavors of the spices and vinegar that create the perfect tang, which is why I like using Heinz as an ingredient  in my recipes! I also decided to pick up a small bottle of Heinz® Sweet Pickled Relish to help add some dimension to my potato salad recipe. You don’t have to go exclusively to Walmart either – you can find The New Heinz® Yellow Mustard at most grocery stores as well.

First I peel and chop 5 large potatoes and start boiling them until they are tender.

Unless you already have hard boiled eggs in the fridge, I start with hard boiling 3 eggs. Place the 3 eggs in a saucepan and fill with cool water, then bring it to a boil on the stove top. Once its boiling, remove it from the heat and let it sit for 12 minutes. I let mine sit and cool for abit so they are easier to handle when peeling them. While the eggs are sitting in the boiling water, I chop 2 stalks of celery and 1/2 an onion and add it to the bowl.

Add in 2 tablespoons of Heinz Sweet Pickled Relish, 1/2 cup of salad dressing or mayo, 3 tablespoons of Heinz Yellow Mustard, 3 chopped eggs and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Mix well. Sprinkle with a little paprika and chill before serving!

Queso for All with Velveeta Cheese and Ro*Tel tomatoes - #QuesoForAll #ad

So the big game is coming and every weekend I like to prepare yummy snacks to enjoy while its on. Our family loves to watch football, so gathering around the TV is my favorite time for us all to bond and spend time together. As much as I like to put out the classics like chicken wings, mini sandwiches and pizza, another family favorite is when I make Queso For All with Velveeta Cheese and Ro*Tel tomatoes.

Its a zesty, creamy mix and the flavor fuses perfectly together like peanut butter and jelly. When paired with corn chips, it makes for the perfect Sunday afternoon game time snack that can be passed around to the whole family. It doesnt stop there either – try roasting some cut up potatoes and smothering them in cheesy goodness for a delicious dinner side. Making Velveeta / Ro*Tel queso dip is so easy, anybody can do it. All you need are the 2 ingredients and a saucepan to melt it in. I start by melting the cheese, and I like to cube it up so it melts evenly.

Once you have a nice consistency, then I add an entire can of un-drained Ro*Tel tomatoes and mix it in. I continue to stir and keep it on a low heat for an extra few minutes until its perfectly creamy…. And serve!

While game time is my favorite time to make this creamy delicious queso dip, I don’t limit myself. After all, football season only lasts a few months! I like to also make this for social gatherings, family barbeques in the summer and birthday parties. I guarantee that this will be a crowd pleaser for even your most discerning guests!

Making the best Cold-Day lunch with Campbells Slow Kettle Soup - #LoveLunchIn #Cbias #ad

One of my favorite quick and simple eats is the grilled cheese sandwich – pair it with a warm & hearty soup and you’ve got comfort food in a matter of minutes. Since this week has been filled with lots of heavy, feast worthy eating its been nice to have a lighter option on the off days. I found these Campbells Slow Kettle Style Soups when I was picking up a few things at Walmart this week.

I always like to pair my soups with a grilled cheese because this sandwich is alot like a little black dress – it’s a classic that can be dressed up as easily as it can be dressed down. I’ve made it with plain ol cheap sandwich bread and I’ve also used gourmet sourdough, as well as a range of different cheeses from american to smoked gouda. Depending on what you use, you can make it your own!

As for my soup, I like to have something hearty and easy to prepare at lunch time – leaves me time to get back to the important things! Campbells Slow Kettle Style Soups is one of my new favorites because its full of flavor and tastes like grandma made it.

When I make a grilled cheese, I usually use whatever I have. In this case, I used some smoked gouda that I had leftover from Christmas and sliced it thin.

In a frying pan, melt about 1 tablespoon of butter  on med-high and make sure it coats the bottom well. Place both slices of bread down on the hot surface, and add the cheese to one side, or both if you like it extra cheesy. Let it sit for about a minute, but keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t burn. I use a spatula to peek underneath to check how browned it looks.

Once the surface of the bread is golden, put the slices of bread together and flip it. Your grilled cheese is almost done! If the cheese isn’t melted through, just keep flipping it every 10 seconds until it is.

In the meantime, on a separate burner, I warm up some delicious Campbells Slow Kettle Soup on medium until its hot. I always feel like prepared soup  turns out better when prepared on the stovetop, so I always try to avoid the microwave whenever possible.
