I’ve played around with paleo ice cream recipes many times and as delicious as they are, they just don’t cut it sometimes. If I’m having ice cream, I like a small ratio of ice cream to a huge ratio of mix ins. I want cookies, candy, potato chips, pretzels, caramel, sprinkles, all of it.

None of which is paleo.

At all.

Not even a little bit.

But I’ve found that with popsicles, I’m a little more forgiving. Especially if they are fudge pops. Because I love a fudge pop.

We are officially two days away from one of the biggest grilling holidays. How excited are you? Hopefully as excited as I am.

We’ve already talked about how much I love the 4th of July but what I haven’t told you is that I’m approaching the holiday with a game plan. Because I have s’mores on my brain and I cannot even wait to roast a million marshmallows over the grill and then smush them in between graham crackers with all sorts of chocolate.

The best.

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad – perfect for cookouts! Pasta salad with bacon, olives, tomatoes, avocado, and ranch dressing! 

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad - perfect for cookouts! Pasta salad with bacon, olives, tomatoes, avocado, and ranch dressing!

Things that I love, in no particular order:

Bacon.

Ranch.

Pasta.

If you haven’t noticed, I’m ALL ABOUT the pasta salads. It’s my go-to summer side dish.

Mostly because I always over cook potatoes for potato salad and who likes mushy potato salad?

Well, my 3 year old. But that’s beside the point.

Anyway, because I’m making pasta salad every weekend this time of year, I’m always trying to come up with a new version or new stuff to put in it. This one was a definite winner over this past weekend. It’s got bacon, cheddar cheese, avocado, and black olives. So all my faves! And then it’s tossed with my favorite ranch dressing by Newman’s Own.
