What's Hap-"Pinning" Wednesday {#40}

It's the middle of the week! This week feels like it's going a LOT faster than last week, thankfully!
Since it's Wednesday, you know it's the time to link up with Jessi and I and share what's hap-"pinning" with you!!
Since it's grilling out weather (well, unless you live in Virginia where we are going on our 15th straight day of precipitation in the forecast), and Summer is right around the corner, I've been finding all kinds of yummy meals and appetizers for entertaining! 
Some of my favorites:
You know things are starting off on the right foot when bacon and mac and cheese are combined, am I right? I have a feeling these would disappear within minutes of a party!
Bacon Mac n Cheese Bites
These ones require a bit more work, but boy do they have my mouth watering just looking at them:
Twice Baked Chicken Fajita Sweet Potatoes
 I've made tuna cakes before (which tasted surprisingly similar to crab cakes--thanks to Old Bay), but never made them with japaenos before which I think would be a fun twist, and an awesome dish to put out for company
Tuna Cakes with Jalapeno and Cilantro

In the Spring and Summer time I crave yummy pasta salads, and I love going to BBQ's and cook outs, and loading my plate with a good pasta salad!
Spring Veggie Pasta Salad
And then you have to make sure you have some yummy desserts. The easier the better!
3-Ingredient Cookies N Cream Parfait
And it wouldn't be a party without a yummy signature drink, would it? I'm a HUGE fan of watermelon drinks, and this one can easily be made virgin or not:
Watermelon Lemonade
What are some of your favorite go-to's for Spring and Summer cook outs?
Now it's your turn to link up and share what's hap-"pinning" with you!
