I knew I was onto a good thing because I made up a blender full of these and every member of my family wanted one. That really doesn’t happen often. Personally, I’m a dairy-loving smoothie girl. Des loves bananas. Cassidy and Scarlet love pineapples and cold and refreshing drinks. I will tell you that these smoothies have a secret ingredient, though. I’m pretty sure the best recipes have secret ingredients. It’s really not-so-secret, though, because I’m going to tell you all about it! It’s Dunkin’ Donuts Extra Extra Creamer, which is wonderful in recipes! And you can use a variety of flavors in smoothies.

Dunkin’ Extra Extra creamer has real cream and real sugar, and helps kick any recipe up a notch. For me, it was all about that smooth creaminess. Whether it’s camp or class parties, picnics, family gatherings, girls’ nights out, or breakfast, this creamer is here to help make your recipes delicious. For us, mornings are a little rough. Sometimes more than a little. So I like to make my recipes more.. extra. More something. I basically need something that’s going to help me manage 13 animals, two kids, two careers, and a whole lot of chaotic mornings. That said, we have fun too. It’s fun chaos.

Organized chaos? Chaos with creamy smoothies?

Dunkin’ Extra Extra Creamy Frozen Pineapple and Banana Smoothies:

What You Need:

2 ripe bananas, sliced and frozen for a bit
3-4 cups frozen pineapple chunks
3/4 cup of milk of any kind
3/4 cup Dunkin’ Extra Extra creamer
1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract

What You Do:

1 – Place all ingredients in your blender and make sure they’re broken up and not clustered together
2 – Run the blender until the smoothie is smooth – might take a few minutes
3 – If it’s too thin, add more pineapple and if it’s too thick, add more milk and creamer
4 – Serve and enjoy! This made four servings

Basically if I can elevate an already incredible recipe, that’s like elevation squared. And I’m in.

It’s so refreshing for or with breakfast, and it also makes a wonderful evening snack. And if you’re in the mood for a little get together, it’s so easy to make up to 4-6 smoothies in one sitting. A little goes a long way, and it’s so delicious. Also, Dunkin’ Donuts Extra Extra creamer also comes in Vanilla Extra Extra and Caramel Extra Extra. Both would work here too!

Beans and Coleslaw Bacon Burgers and Hot Dogs (YUM)

This post was created in partnership with Wonder. All thoughts are my own.

These burgers are hot dogs are DIVINE! You get the sweet bean flavor and the crunch of the coleslaw. And #bacon of course #ad #SpreadtheWonder #WonderBread

We are all thinking about burgers and hot dogs right now. I know I am. There’s something about summer and the food that is like magic. Especially since my kids have finally found their love of both burgers and hot dogs. It took some time, but it all started with extra pickles and ketchup. Then I decided to branch out a bit. Cassidy grows so much cabbage in our garden that I have taken to making homemade coleslaw. There’s something about that first satisfying crunch. Then, Des helped me realize a genius move – baked beans ON a hot dog or hamburger. I was speechless at first from this brilliance.

This is two recipes in one! Use it for burgers and use it for hot dogs. Right now we’re in summer party mode. My birthday is tomorrow (ahem) and we’re still celebrating all things summer and we will be for quite awhile. So the opportunity to prepare this two in one summer treat couldn’t be timelier, stepping our burger and hot dog game up with a new flavorful recipe – simply perfect for summer entertaining. With next level toppings, only a soft and delicious bun would do.

Then you find that THE iconic brand of your childhood — Wonder Bread, has partnered with the United States Organization (USO), for “Camo for a Cause,” a campaign honoring the selfless service of military men and women. I had all those feelings of nostalgia wash over me, and also pride at helping to support our military friends

There’s only one thing that gets me as excited as good food does, and that’s good food for a good cause! So I bought several packages for summer.

As part of the campaign, you’ll find exclusive Wonder and USO “Camo for a Cause” co-branded hamburger and hot dog bun packaging on grocer shelves. I was so excited to see the packaging! From now through the rest of July, look for the packaging donning stars, stripes and camo!

Summer is synonymous with honoring and celebrating the United States and its heroes. We have Military Appreciation Month in May, and July 4th. We honor and celebrate with grilling and outdoor entertaining often at the center of how we express gratitude. That’s why this partnership is so timely! You can look to Wonder to round out your picnics, parades, and backyard get-togethers in honor of active duty, Guard, Reserve and military veteran communities. We’re happy to Spread the Wonder.

My recipe is delicious. Make sure to use real bacon bits! You can pre-make the coleslaw or use homemade coleslaw and your own baked beans recipe. It’s such a nice combination because you get the sweetness of the beans, the smokiness of the bacon bits, and then the crunch of the coleslaw. Here’s the recipe as we make it here and feel free to modify:

What You Need:

Wonder Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns
3 cups shredded cabbage (we use purple)
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup mayo
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tsp celery seed
Salt, pepper and a dash of sugar to taste
Baked beans
Hot dogs and hamburgers

What You Do:

1 – In a large bowl, combine your cabbage and carrots

2 – In a smaller bowl, make your dressing with mayo, vinegar, salt and pepper, celery seed, and sugar

3 – Toss your dressing into the cabbage and carrots and then let chill

4 – Top your hot dogs and hamburgers with warm baked beans, bacon bits, and then coleslaw

5 – Enjoy!
