four blogs button

 Welcome to Eat. Create. Party! I’ve had quite the day trying to keep up with my two year old after my husband got really sick in the middle of the night. No sleep and then taking care of my high-energy two-year-old and very sick husband is exhausting!! So I’m sorry if I don’t make any sense or if I’m missing something, I am not at the top of my game! Thanks for joining us this fine Thursday!

Ice Cream Sundae Cookie Bars



Ice Cream Sundae Cookie BarsThis is another wonderful round of #MysteryDish

#MysteryDish is a fun group of bloggers that have gotten together to challenge each other in making fun dishes just for YOU!

This month our host is Meriem from Culinary Couture, her site is fully of delicious, mouth watering recipes that will rock your world

She brought to us a fun list of ingredients this month and all the bloggers have come up with something scrumptious! The full list of recipes from this month is at the bottom, check them out and show them some love!

Ice Cream Sundae Cookie Bar

I’m not going to talk about how amazing this recipe is…cause I think you can just look at it and know that anything topped with ice cream, chocolate fudge, caramel, M&Ms and whipped cream is AMAZING.

I want to talk about the word Sundae.

Yep, you are saying it in your head right now. . .

But you aren’t saying it right :)

You are saying is “Sunday” … am I right?!?

Well I’m here to set the record straight it’s not “Sun-day” but “Sun-duh”

I grew up knowing this fantastic ice cream treat as an ice cream sun-duh and not an ice cream sun-day, now I guess I’m not saying your totally wrong, it’s probably where you grew up that made you say it that way but our family would say otherwise and claim that we are right ;) As I’m sure every other family would. 

I love discussing ways people say different words, my hubby and I do it quite often because we grew up SO differently than one another. How do you say “crayon” “lawyer” “coupon” “across” (he adds a ‘t’ to the end of that word…um, no) “sundae” 

I’m interested…how do you say the word “sundae” or do you have any words people raise an eyebrow at when you say it?

Jalapeno Lemon Mayonnaise



Jalapeno MayoAs I promised here is the delicious jalapeno lemon mayonnaise that is on my Spicy Pecorino Burger from the awesome list of perfect BBQ recipes and projects that I posted yesterday

This mayonnaise will change the life of your burgers

I mean, mayonnaise is plenty good smothered on a toasted bun but add these rockin’ flavors and it will make your mouth pop!

The heat from the jalapeno is offset by the cool finish of the mayo and then the acidity of the lemon rounds the whole thing out

Jalapeno Mayonnaise

 Who said this was just for burgers?!?

This jalapeno lemon mayonnaise is also the perfect dipping sauce for those crunchy fries that accompany ever burger

Who am I kidding, the fry is only a vehicle for transporting sauce, and in this case a flavor kickin’ spicy mayo 

I have always been a lover of sauces; ketchup, ranch, BBQ, steak sauce, teriyaki…lets not forget syrup, no stack of pancakes or fresh waffles would be the same without syrup. . . mmmmm, I want pancakes 

Anyways, this mayo has been added to the list of regular sauce in our house

Are you a fan of sauces? What’s your go-to dipping sauce for fries?

I am constantly looking for new foods and recipes that I can just thrown on the grill but nothing beats a burger. It is such a canvas to add whatever your heart desires and more. My husband had a burger from one of our favorite local restaurants in town that he was just enamored with that I knew I had to create something like it at home. 

Spicy Pecorino Burger

The spicy pecorino burger

It’s so juicy, packed with two types of ground meat, topped with a sharp, salty pecorino cheese and spicy jalapenos on a toasted bun smothered with a jalapeno lemon mayonnaise . . . two words: DE – LICIOUS!
