Blueberry Yogurt Cake

I’m wrapping up #CookOutWeek with dessert! I mean you can’t go to a picnic without a little sweet treat to end the day. This blueberry yogurt cake was packed full of blueberries with a hint of lemon in a rich cake. We all loved it and it was eaten way too quickly! I will definitely be making this cake again this summer. The only change I’ll make is to make the glaze a little bit thicker.

What’s your favorite way to end a picnic dessert? Cake, brownies, smores or ice cream?

Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken

Today’s #CookOutWeek recipe is our main course – Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken. I rarely marinade chicken breasts but will be doing it more with this recipe. I loved the hint of lime, a touch of sweetness from honey and the punch from cilantro. I used to not be a fan of cilantro, but I’ve grown to love it. I also grow it in my garden, so we always have a bunch ready to use.

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

Every BBQ, summer picnic or cookout needs a salad! I usually make pasta salad or ask my mom to make macaroni salad (I haven’t perfected her recipe yet!), but now this salad is going to be my go-to recipe! Today’s #CookOutWeek recipe features broccoli, cauliflower, cheese and bacon in a creamy, tangy sauce! I love the crunch of the veggies – plus you can’t go wrong with bacon and cheese! My kiddos were iffy on it, but ended up devouring it after their first bite!

Spicy Seven Layer Dip

For #CookoutWeek, I’ll be taking you through an entire meal, course by course – perfect for your next bbq, picnic, cookout or just for dinner! I’m starting out with an appetizer – spicy seven layer dip. Ironically, I’ve never made a layered dip before, but this will be made over and over again. It’s super easy especially since I’m using store-bought hummus and guacamole. My husband and I loved it and the spice the hummus had. I served it with blue multi-grain tortilla chips, but you could serve it with a veggie tray and it would be delicious too!
