Holiday Hacks: Tyson® Dinner & Entrée Kits

This post is sponsored by Tyson Foods, Inc. All comments and opinions are my own. Once November rolls around, we start the holiday season marathon. Baking, shopping, turkeys, parties, presents, caroling, Santa! All this thankfulness and yuletide cheer can be quite exhausting. And if you are anything like me, you are about to spend more time in the kitchen basting, kneading, and sautéing in the next two months than you have the rest of this year combined. To avoid a seasonal meltdown, I like to have a few easy meals up my sleeve. Luckily, my lovely friends at Tyson Foods, …

Braided Ham & Brie Stuffed Pastry

Braided Ham & Brie Stuffed Pastry

Alert! Alert! We are T-Minus 3 weeks to Thanksgiving, people! And we all know what that means… the in-laws! Oh yeah, if you’ve been married as long as I have, then you know that as you nervously baste the turkey, your mother-in-law will be scrutinizing your every move. It’s like she’s got eyes in the back of her head! So distract her with a tempting appetizer that even she won’t look away from… Braided Ham & Brie Stuffed Pastry! I was sent a delicious sample of Frick’s Applewood Smoked Ham and the recipe wheels immediately began turning. I personally always …

Bacon Wrapped Filet with Chardonnay Pumpkin Sauce

Bacon Wrapped Filet with Chardonnay Pumpkin Sauce

This post is sponsored by Tyson Foods, Inc. All comments and opinions are my own. As pools start to empty and the last rays of summertime begin to fade, I become unreasonably excited. Why, you ask? Because autumn is coming! Pumpkin spice, chunky sweaters, hot cider… I would argue that it is actually the most wonderful time of the year (and yes, that was some major shade I just threw, Santa). Fall is also the beginning of the holiday season, where family, friends, and entertaining reign. You will inevitably be hosting dinner and you’re going to need a phenomenal entrée …

If you’re an avid reader, then you know that The Frosted Petticoat isn’t just about whimsical recipes and extravagant eats. We’re also about realistic expectations!

Chicken Dinner, Tart, Savory

Blooming Chicken Dinner Tart

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. The opinions and text are all mine. Time is the most valuable commodity in a busy family’s schedule. From work demands, school agendas, basic household chores, and extracurricular activities, time isn’t something of abundance. But as any parent knows, it’s not the quantity but the quality of that extra free time that really matters: Putting down the phone to have an in-depth discussion about Elsa’s wintery powers; setting aside dirty dishes for an impromptu dance party to the Vampirina theme song; and sitting down to a …

Buffalo Chicken, Tyson Any'tizers, Appetizer

Buffalo Chicken & Feta Basketball Poppers

This post is sponsored by Tyson Foods, Inc. All comments and opinions are my own. ‘Tis the season to shoot hoops! Sleeveless jerseys, sweaty palms, baited breath as the ball swooshes through the net. Oh yeah, and chicken! Let’s all just agree right here and now that chicken appetizers should be the official food of basketball season. Seriously, it’s the peanut butter to jelly, the Sam to Diane, or how baby boomers like to think of millennials, the avocado to toast. Watching a game isn’t enjoyable without some bite-sized chicken in hand. And if you need some convincing, then look …

Fashionable Food: Spicy Harvest Pizza

It’s Fashionable Food time, again! This is my new series where I pair recipes with designer runway looks. Why? Because I see food everywhere, that’s why. A few weeks ago, I kicked off the series by pairing my Springtime Oat Smoothie with Oscar de la Renta. For obvious reasons, the results were fabulous. You can also read all about the inspiration behind Fashionable Food and why on Earth I am actually doing this. In the near future, I will be creating recipes inspired by runway looks. But for now, we’ll be revisiting recipes past that are still in fashion. Pun …

Corn Dogs, State Fair

Spicy Caramelized Onion Dip & Dressed Corn Dogs

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own. Food is not just an energy source. It is often a trigger, inexplicably intertwined with moments in time. Fresh out of the oven cinnamon rolls and I’m a 5-year-old in my aunt’s kitchen trying to sneak a bite. When I walk through the door of a coffee house and catch a whiff of the inescapable aroma, my heart swoons as I’m immediately transported to the first date with my husband. Crispy corn dogs on a stick and I flash back …
