Roasted nuts? Yes, please. They are maple glazed? Oh, for sure! They have a spicy kick to them? Woot! Wait, stop the presses… there are crispy bits of BACON mixed in there too?! Oh, hellz yes! This yummy snack is an elevated version of your basic roasted, salted mixed nuts. Chances are good that you […]
Scallop, corn and bacon appetizer. (Um, salad…?)
Over the Labor Day Weekend, we attended a friend’s pool party and I brought an appetizer to share. Bay scallops and fresh, sweet corn were on sale, so I decided to make the guests at the pool party my personal guinea pigs and try out a brand new, made up recipe on them. I don’t […]
Bacon – Blue Cheese – Chorizo Bites.
Last month when I was in Atlanta for the Haven Conference, several of us went out to dinner at a tapas restaurant that had been recommended. (I am so glad I get to type tapas instead of say tapas… “What?! Topless?!” gets really old, really quick…) Anyhow, the food was amazing, and I was inspired […]
Bacon Waffles with a Peppered Egg (So bad for you, but SO good!)
I had kind of an odd Father’s Day Weekend. Handsome Hubby took the two younger kids and went up to spend the weekend with his parents (they live about 3 hours North of us…) I wanted to stay around to make sure that Devin and Conner got through their first Father’s Day without their dad […]
Wine marinated Beef Stew, served with a side of Funny. mmm mmm good.
Yesterday Giada De Laurentiis was on The Today Show sharing some recipes for comfort foods. One of them was for a Chianti marinated beef stew. Sounded good. I didn’t have the exact ingredients that she used, so I winged it. I used a Cabernet to marinate the meat instead of Chianti. Grant was watching the wine-marinating process. […]
Mother’s Day Wrap-up. No pictures of people, but pictures of Pom-Poms. Duh.
I just washed and put away the last champagne flute from our annual Mother’s Day Brunch. This is the 5th one we’ve hosted, and each time it gets a little easier to put together. I change the theme and/or color scheme each year. I was going to do this turquoise and apple green, with pops […]
Thank you for bacon.
Grant’s class party was last Friday. I was in the classroom, helping out, when I noticed the kids’ Thanksgiving artwork hanging overhead. I spied Grant’s: In case you can’t read this due to my terrible mobile picture or his phonetic spelling/lack of punctuation, please allow me to transcribe it for you… I am thankful for […]
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 […]
Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies. Salty-Sweet heaven.
“Mmmm. Move over, eggs. Bacon just got a new best friend – fudge.” Homer Simpson Bacon. And donuts… Wait. This is about bacon. And chocolate. Together. In a cookie. Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies. A little bit of salty sweet heaven! Some may scoff when they first hear of the combo. Like caramel and sea […]
