There is NO recipe that makes any food that is to 'die' for. I don't doubt these recipes are sooo goood but if you had to die when you ate them what good would they be?

I love making different recipes with cake mix! The Devilishly Minty Cookies are sooo good!

Tried the Orange Dream Cake and it really was dreamy! All these cakes look pretty easy to make. Will be bookmarking this page for the next time I need a quick cake idea.

Reuben Dogs

Say goodbye to boring hot dogs and hello to ones that are deli-delicious! Our Reuben Dogs are a mashup between a favorite deli sandwich (the Reuben!) and perfectly-cooked hot dogs. The tang of the sauerkraut, the gooeyness of the cheese, and the flavor of the Russian dressing make our hot dogs taste extra-special.
