Sierra Mist Pound Cake {Game Time Dessert}

It's football season which means fun, football, friends, family, and of course FOOD! In our house football is for the guys, but I still love hanging out with our friends and family and cooking for everyone. The big game is just around the corner. Are you game day ready? 

When it comes to tailgating and football food I try to keep it as simple as possible. Our usual game day menu consists of a variety of appetizers, chips, dips, nachos, wings, finger foods, sliders, burgers, and hot dogs. Walmart has always been my one stop shop for all my game time needs. 

I love that I can find everything I need for any holiday or occasion in one store. Walmart has everything I need whether I'm making something from scratch or I need to pick up a ready made item from their deli or bakery. It all just depends on how much time I have.  

This year Pepsico is participating in Game Time with a variety of chips and soda products. While these are simple and ready to eat items on their own, Pepsico and Walmart are sharing a variety of easy recipes you can make to take your game time menu over the top. 

I was asked to recreate one of their game time recipes and share it with you. They had so many recipes to choose from, but I settled on this Sierra Mist Pound Cake. Every party needs dessert and the simpler the better for me.

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Bubble Bread

Cheesy bubble bread seasoned with ranch dressing, two types of cheese, and topped with crispy bacon pieces.
 
Well it's that time again........ Football Season! In my house it's all about Football for my guys, but for me it's all about the eats. I don't know why, but I have never really been much of a football fan. Even though I don't get involved in the actual game I do love all the food and fun that surrounds it.  

When it comes to football food I always try to keep it simple. I usually lean more towards simple dips and finger foods that transport easily. Let's face it folks they won't be eating in the dining room, so finger foods, dips and easy to carry items are a must. 

This Cheesy, Bacon, Ranch Bubble Bread starts with Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls  and the addition of crisp cooked bacon, a variety of cheeses, and a packet of ranch dressing mix. This bread is cheesy, addicting and crazy good! This bread  is definitely the perfect finger food.
