Labor Day Entertaining with Chef Jamie Gwen (sponsored)
As I get ready to celebrate my upcoming Labor Day parties with classics such as ribs, hamburgers or hot dogs, I like to pair these meals with a side of Bush’s Grillin’ Beans. The Bush’s Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans or Bush’s Original Baked Beans go nicely in a cast iron skillet right on the grill. They are the sure side of a good time! Bush's Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin' Beans feature a robust sauce generously seasoned with brown sugar, a bold blend of spices, onion and a touch of natural bourbon flavor for a side dish that's decidedly different. It’s great for cookouts but also for easy weeknight meals with ribs and coleslaw, too! Click here to learn more.
I like to pick a salad you can make ahead of time like this Pearls Olives and Roasted Corn Salad. With only six ingredients it will bring color and delicious flavor to your table. People who love olives, love and trust Pearls. Pearls Black Ripe Olives are 100% grown and packed in sunny California, picked at the peak of freshness. You can see and taste the difference. Just look for their sunny yellow packaging. Click here to learn more.
No gathering is complete without delicious Challenge Butter. This award-winning butter has a line of Spreadable Butters that are made with 100% real Challenge Butter and are blended with high-quality oils such as olive, canola or avocado. They spread so easily right out of the fridge and are perfect for spreading on your corn, veggies, steaks and baked potatoes, and of course, the rolls! The portability is also a bonus: just pop the top back on when not in use. Click here to learn more.
Chocolate chip cookies can be a Superfood ... just add Mighty Sesame Tahini! They put their creamy all-natural, high-quality Tahini in a Squeeze and Serve bottle. Packed with protein and calcium it is vegan, gluten and dairy free, kosher and halal. Use it in hummus, but also for dressings, or on wraps and sandwiches instead of mayo, ketchup, mustard or peanut butter…Choose from Organic, Whole Seed and a Spicy Harissa flavor.

These sweet potato chips from family-owned Jackson’s are full of flavor and high in fiber and loaded with antioxidants. Hearty heirloom, non-GMO sweet potato slices are cooked low and slow, in tasty coconut and avocado oils to keep their molecular integrity and bring out the best flavor and texture. The Carolina BBQ or Spicy Tomatillo flavors add a touch of sweetness and a kick to your meal, and all flavors are friendly to just about any diet out there, including Paleo, gluten- and peanut-free.
