Here are a few recipes to help turn your backyard into your field of dreams:
Bourbon Hot Dogs: For an all-grown up party snack, try this brown sugar and bourbon mixture for hot dogs, little smokies, or meatballs.

Hot Dog Relish: Create your own one-of-a-kind hot dog relish that features sweet and dill relish with a touch of cocktail sauce.
Blue Ribbon Burgers: Easy to make and even easier to enjoy. These simple burgers are so jam-packed with flavor they will win any backyard barbecue contest around. Or be great on the grill.
All-Star Veggie Burger: This veggie burger is a great alternative to eating its beefy cousin. It's high in fiber and as a standalone patty, actually tastes pretty good. Once you layer the ketchup, the mustard, pickles, etc. you won't be able to tell the difference.
Hamburger Buns: Take your burgers to the next level of homemade goodness by making your own egg buns. It is a simple way to make fresh and delicious buns for your friends and family.
Top Notch Nachos: Simply assemble these traditional nacho ingredients to please everyone at your get together. Instead of shredded cheese try topping them with our own Homemade Nacho Cheese Sauce recipe.
Homemade Nacho Cheese Sauce: Why go out and buy a huge can of this delicious stuff when it's so easy to make at home? I love just sitting at home on a lazy afternoon, watching some baseball, and making my own ballpark nachos with homemade cheese sauce and pickled jalapenos.
Homemade Popcorn: Instead of buying store-bought popcorn, make your own! And we have the recipe to do it 10 minutes.
Spicy Popcorn on the Grill: To serve a crowd, multiple pans of popcorn can be popped at once on grill. Also note that chili powder tends to darken with heat, which may give your popcorn an overcooked appearance but won't affect taste.
Sugared Peanuts: Comparable to honey roasted peanuts, this recipe will let you enjoy peanuts like you would at the big game.
Churros: This Mexican dessert is a real treat! Covered with cinnamon and sugar, it's crunchy and sweet.
Lemonade Sorbet: Light, refreshing and easy to make. Serve one up on a hot day.
Watermelon Lemonade: You'll love what a little watermelon can do for homemade lemonade.
