Pumpkin spice everything season is here! I don't know about you, but sometimes I need a break from all the meats and BBQ to satisfy that sweet tooth of mine. These little cakes are perfect for fall. They are packed with so much pumpkin spice, you will forget all about that PSL you were craving earlier this morning. Then you top of the moist, dense, delicious cake with cream cheese frosting and a little sprinkle of candied bacon (because we can't completely give up our meats now can we?).
I love making these cakes in the larger ramekins because they end up looking like giant frosted cupcakes! You can also make them in smaller ramekins if you don't want to be SO gluttonous. But who really wants to do that, right?
You can even make them cupcakes if you want to! Regardless, these cakes will be gone in a blink of an eye as soon as you serve them. Are you drooling yet? Time to get your bake on piggy peeps! Celebrate fall before that cold cold winter sets in. ;)

Y'all know I couldn't leave you hanging right before the big game on Sunday without something delicious to make, right? For the love of all things bacon and cheese, this Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Dip is the one recipe that HAS to hit your game day spread this weekend. I LOVE serving up cheesy dips for football parties because they are always the star of the entire day. The gooey cheese served up on crusty bread or tortilla chips is all too addicting (plus it helps balance out all those boozy drinks you'll be guzzling as you cheer your team on).
Heck, even if you are just watching for the commercials, you still need something to eat that'll warm you from the inside out! This creamy, cheesy dip is spicy and savory, with the perfect salty hit of bacon from Pig of the Month BBQ's Applewood Smoked Maple Bacon. The thick cuts of bacon really stick out in this dip, so it's ideal for all those bacon-lovers in yo life. When I dip, you dip, we dip! Time to DIG IN.

Sriracha Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeños really bring the heat! This spicy, crispy and creamy appetizer will win over everyone at your next party.
Wrapping things in bacon is kind of a specialty of mine. If anything just isn't quite working for me in the kitchen, I usually head straight for the extra pound of bacon I always have sitting in my refrigerator. You know, just in case there's a bacon-related emergency - which surprisingly happens on a weekly basis for me. You'd be surprised by just how many things can be wrapped in bacon! Potatoes, rolls, scallops, shrimp, meatloaf, yea this list could go on forever. Today I'm bringing you one of my new favorite bacon-wrapped recipes that'll light a fire on your tongue and in your belly.
Sriracha Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeños are the best combo of crispy, creamy, spicy and extra cheesy. The Sriracha bacon and added Sriracha in the filling make these little guys just the right amount of wicked. You'll feel the heat but you won't be burning your taste buds off with each bite. Pro tip: try slicing a sausage or brat in half and stuffing it with one of these stuffed jalapeños. Next level amazingness right there, I'm just saying.
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking dish and set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Monterrey Jack cheese, garlic, Sriracha and salt with an electric mixer until smooth and well-combined.
Add the halved jalapeños to the baking dish and fill each one evenly with the spicy cream cheese filling.
Wrap each stuffed jalapeño half with half a slice of Sriracha bacon, securing with a toothpick. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the bacon is as crispy as desired. Serve immediately.
