Salted Maple Pie

The last time I was in Detroit, I went to a new bakery called Sister Pie.  I fell in love with the place immediately.  Unfortunately, I arrived minutes before the shop was closing and had a very limited selection of pie slices to choose from.  One of them was a salted maple pie.  I couldn’t…

Maple Bacon Glazed Donuts

My son had a friend sleepover and I took them to see Godzilla.  It was hilarious!  I don’t think it was the films’ intention to be hilarious, but my son, his friend, the audience and I laughed for at least half of the film.  The special effects were great by the way.  While we were…

Bacon Crack

I have to be honest. I’m not very good a creating my own recipes. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said “I wish I thought of that!”. This was one of those times. I love bacon. Like, a lot. If bacon were actually healthy, I’d eat it every day. When I saw this…

Maple Bacon Popcorn

  I made my favorite grilled cheese for dinner last night (dry rubbed black forest bacon with gruyere), and somehow had a few strips of bacon left over. I was going to wrap them up and put them in the fridge for breakfast, but a few hours later I was in the mood for a…

Yeast Waffles

Maple-Pecan Rice Krispies Treat

A friend of mine posted this recipe on my Facebook page and asked if I would make it his birthday which is still months away. Rice Krispies treats are a no-brainer, so I decided to whip up a batch a little sooner. Who knew it was possible to make a mistake with such a simple…

Buttermilk Pancakes

I first made these pancakes a few years ago for my son’s birthday breakfast.  The recipe was on the packaging for Star Wars pancake molds. I don’t usually try recipes found on product labels, but I made them and they were delicious.  They are the perfect balance of hearty and light.  I fry them in…
