I almost never cooked bacon when the kids were younger.
It isn’t exactly good for you, it splatters and makes a mess when you cook it, etc. I did not realize how infrequently I cooked it until one day a 5 year old Devin came to me and asked me if he could have some of that “up down food.” This request was accompanied by a hand gesture that mimicked waves, undulating up and down. The poor kid had an extensive vocabulary, yet he didn’t know the word for bacon.
Fast forward 13 years. My baby just turned 18. Due to several scheduling conflicts, we opted for a morning celebration.
And these Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies are a hit every time I make them.
