BBQ Ranch Burgers Recipe

BBQ Ranch Burgers
These BBQ ranch burgers get a lot of flavor from ranch dressing mix and prepared bbq sauce. The burgers are topped with a ranch guacamole. You can either grill these burgers on an outdoor grill, cook them in the frying pan or on a griddle. The ground beef is mixed with ingredients such as ranch dressing, bbq sauce, shredded cheddar cheese and minced onion. I like to serve these burgers with French fries. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Truffles
It’s that time of the year again for pumpkin. These pumpkin cheesecake truffles are easy to make and taste great. There are very few ingredients in this recipe and you can make these in large batches if you want. The process to preparing these truffles is very simple. Yellow cake mix and canned pumpkin is baked in the oven and then mixed with cream cheese and rolled into balls. The cheesecake bites are then dipped into melted chocolate and then dried until the coating is hardened. If you want you can even drizzle additional melted chocolate at the end after the initial coating has hardened.
