The Barnyard Bistro Top Ten Dishes

Whew! If you have been following my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook you'll notice that life has been quite busy. I haven't been home in two weeks and as you can imagine it's not easy to cook on the road when all you have access to in your down time is clif bars, almonds, bottled water and beer! I feel like a slacker on here while the rest of my life has been a whirlwind of work and productivity! I have so many amazing and exciting things coming up and I can't wait to share them with you.  We kicked off the Shut Up and Hold On tour where me and the band are on as the opening act for the one and only Toby Keith as well as Colt Ford. We have been designing merchandise, rehearsing, traveling and preparing and we finally got to step out on stage for the first weekend in California and it was an absolute BLAST!  Check out our tour schedule and plan on making a show and hangin' out with us! We also just wrapped up the CMT Awards (see pic below) and CMA Fest where I had 3 performances!

I walked the Red Carpet this year! 
Speaking of CMA Fest...If you have been hanging out in the barnyard from day one, you may remember that my first post (Baked Crab Cakes) was during CMA Fest 2013, which would make this past week, the official One Year Anniversary of The Barnyard Bistro.  Sharing with you guys on here has been one of the most rewarding experiences I can think of. Everywhere I go and every interview I do, I am asked about the blog and hear stories of happy husbands and delicious adventures. I thought in honor of the anniversary, I would take a look back at the recipes that you guys used the most!
