Virtual Summer BBQ {Vote for your favorite recipe!}


Today I have the privilege and honor of hosting a few of my food blogging friends for a Virtual Summer BBQ.
I asked each of them to bring one of their favorite cold summer dishes.
I really admire and respect these bloggers, not only because they are some amazingly 
talented cooks, but because they are genuinely kind (and fun!) folks.
And lucky me, I also get to co-host this event with Toni from The Happy Housewife.
She invited a few of her good friends too.
So this is a real treat today! 
I don't know about y'all but I'm always looking for some new and fun summer dishes to try.
And my friends here did not disappoint with what they brought to our Virtual BBQ.

There was just one little twist to our BBQ....a challenge.

The challenge?
They had to use Philadelphia Cooking Creme in a new and unique way in their dish.
They could use any flavor of the Creme they wanted and any other ingredients of their choosing.
The prize?
The top recipe that receives the most unique comments - from you!- will 
win $500 and a year’s supply of Kraft Philadelphia Cooking Creme!

"Unique comments” means that only one of your comments per blog will count, so even if 
you love a blogger’s recipe so very much, your sixty comments will not count sixty times, but only once.
But I'm sure that would make them feel SO loved.

Your task?
I need you to go vote for your favorite recipe!
Click on your favorite recipe below and leave a comment on their blog post that their recipe is your favorite.

Now let's see what everyone brought!! 
(Seriously, y'all are gonna love these recipes!!)
