Cobb Salad

My son came home from the end of the summer asking me to make a Cobb salad.  I felt like I needed to be revived with smelling salts after hearing this. My once lettuce adverse veggie eater is now asking for a salad for dinner. I think it was because bacon was involved. To be…

Bacon Blue Cheese and Scallion Scones

One of my closest friends, and fellow culinary classmate, sent me a recipe from King Arthur Flour for bacon, cheddar, and chive scones. We like to send each other recipes, test them out, and compare notes. This recipe was highly rated, and we were both excited about trying it. I, however, didn’t have any cheddar…

Broccoli and Bacon Pasta

It’s the middle of the week. I’ve worked late every night, and haven’t been to the store. I didn’t even take anything out of the freezer. I take a peek in my fridge to see if I can do better than grilled cheese or pb&j. I have a few slices of bacon, a crown of…

Red Cabbage Salad with Lime Cumin Vinaigrette

One thing I love about joining different foodie groups is the exposure you get to a lot of other great food blogs. I stumbled across this red cabbage salad with lime cumin vinaigrette from platings and pairings the other day, and thought it sounded delicious. The original recipe called for Brussels sprouts, which I love,…

Mac and Cheese with Blue Cheese and Bacon

I have a love/hate relationship with blue cheese. It’s stinky, yet flavorful and bold. I love it on salad with dried cranberries and walnuts, on a cheese board with pears, or with buffalo chicken mac! The other day I found myself with a container of crumbled blue cheese and began to scour the web for…

Kimchi Potato Hash with Bacon

I feel like I should call this post the Kimchi Diaries, because I’m so in love with the stuff right now. That’s the beauty and the curse of discovering something new. You explore all the possibilities, and hope that you don’t tire of it! So far that hasn’t happened to me because I just discovered kimchi potato…

Melt Gourmet Cheeseburgers

I LOVE a good burger. Doesn’t matter if it’s from a food truck, diner, or 5-star restaurant. It just has to be good. Also, I’m willing to travel for food. Luckily my boyfriend supports my love of burgers because he drove me to Melt Gourmet Cheeseburgers in Leesburg which was a 50-minute scenic drive away…

Tartfilette

Have I ever mentioned my love for bacon and cheese?  It runs very, very deep, so you could imagine how my eyes widened when I saw this recipe for a tartfilette. Bacon, cheese, potatoes and white wine? Sign me up! The French really know how to blend simple ingredients together and make them wonderful.  The…

Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Biscuit

I’m going to file this bacon and cheese stuffed biscuit recipe under quick and easy.  I hit the ground running this weekend, starting laundry before I even made breakfast. I had to run to the market for detergent mid load and tried to think of what I could make quickly for breakfast.  I grabbed a…

Bacon Waffles

I’m beginning to think that I should change my blog from baking to all breakfast.  That’s all I seem to be doing lately.  I’m not going to lie.  I’ve been extremely busy recently (and my budget’s been a little tight), so I haven’t done anything too fancy.  But if there is something I always have…

Sriracha Ice Cream

For my second installment of “it’s too hot to use the oven so let’s make lots of ice cream”, I made sriracha ice cream and topped it with bacon. Yep, bacon. I’m a firm believer that just about everything is better with bacon. To be honest, I’m not a fan of spicy foods or desserts….

Bourbon Bacon Skillet Cookie

This recipe for a bourbon bacon skillet cookie fulfilled all of my needs for a boozy, bacon filled, chocolate decadent dessert.  And It even hit all of my comfort food buttons. I’ve been wanting to make a skillet cookie for a while now, but needed to give it a little kick.  I originally was going…
