Slow Cooker Baked Beans with Bacon

Creamy Mayo-Free Broccoli Salad
A summer side staple, this veggie-packed salad is a delicious and nutritious addition to weeknight meals, family dinners, potlucks, barbecues and more. And with no mayo involved, it’s also allergy-friendly!
Blue Cheese Potato Salad with Chives
Mmmm…potato salad. This twist on the classic relies on sour cream for its creaminess rather than mayo and features the tang of blue cheese and bright flavors of fresh chives to bring it all together.
Gluten-Free Berry Fruit Pizza
Perfect for virtually any summertime gathering, this stunning sweet and healthy treat is loaded with color – and flavor!
The Best Fudgy Paleo Brownies
It wouldn’t be a BBQ without a plate of ooey gooey fudgy goodness, now would it? Pair it with a scoop of ice cream and the crowd will go wild. (Be sure to set one aside for yourself – these disappear quickly!)
Quick Pickled Onions
This is the condiment you didn’t know you were missing! Pile on top of burgers, salads – really anything – if you’re looking to add a little bit of extra flavor.
Sweet & Smoky Brussels Slaw
Switch up your sides and wow your BBQ crowd with this refreshing and satisfying slaw!
Teriyaki Chicken and Pineapple Kebabs
Grilling and kebabs go together hand in hand, and we love these sweet and savory kebabs because you can load them with whatever fruit or vegetables you have on hand!
Grilled Bacon Burgers
Don’t grill just any burger…load it with bacon to make this insanely mouth-watering and tender burger!
Real Food Margarita
Satisfy your and your guests thirst with this naturally sweet (but not too sweet) cocktail that’s made with a real food mixer – not the overly sugar versions.
