15 Delicious Ways to Celebrate National BLT Month

April is National BLT Month and I've rounded up 15 delicious ways to celebrate the occasion! All of these recipes have the required ingredients of a BLT; Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato. Some people may substitute spinach for the lettuce or use a vegetable-based bacon instead of the porky bacon that we all know and love but the truth of the matter is that if there isn't real bacon, real lettuce and real tomatoes - it's not a BLT. Some rules just weren't made to be broken!

1. Classic BLT Sandwich

2. Slow Roasted Tomato BLT Sandwich

SNICKERS® Almond Cinnamon Rolls

Do you turn into a whole 'nother person when you're hungry? I sure do and it's not pretty. My mood turns to cranky and it's not long before I become unreasonable - not far off from a toddler throwing a tantrum. My husband has a sixth sense about this little hunger-attitude of mine and can usually put a kibosh on it before things get too out-of-hand. The go-to? My favorite, a SNICKERS® chocolate bar. Whether he is on his way home from work or pulling off the freeway during a long roadtrip - that man will make sure that my empty stomach grumpiness doesn't get in the way of a fabulous day. You're not you when you're hungry - and lucky for me, he understands that. So, to thank him for all the times he went out of the way to get me a SNICKERS® bar and to apologize for all the things I've ever said out of hunger - I made him these SNICKERS® Almond Cinnamon Rolls. I also wanted to show him that I can share my SNICKERS® - even if I mostly don't. ;)

With only 5 simple ingredients you can't go wrong with this crispy tasty treat that will remind you of those smooshed, yet oh-so tasty, PB&J sammies of our childhood!

What would you bring if asked to make an awesome finger-food for a friend's baby shower? You'd bring Peanut Butter Wontons with Jelly Dipping Sauce, of course. Because 1) you are an awesome friend and 2) you are awesome. But really, my friend has been craving peanut butter and jelly sandwiches during her pregnancy - so I thought I'd fancy up the classic comfort food and make these beauties. These Peanut Butter Wontons with Jelly Dipping Sauce are a cinch to make and from my experience, a total crowd pleaser. {And yes, preggos can eat peanuts, as long as they aren't allergic to them - you might be surprised at how often I heard that question at the baby shower.} With only 5 simple ingredients you just can't go wrong with this tasty treat that will remind you of those smooshed, yet oh-so tasty, PB&J sammies of our childhood!
