No Mayo Roasted Potato Salad with Bacon

Happy Friday-before-a-long-weekend, Sweetie! I hope you have lots of fun planned for the next few days and if you have a picnic or pot luck to attend you’ve come to the right place! As most of you know, this month I celebrated the delicious miracle known as bacon with a  few bloggy friends and sadly, as August comes to end, so does Bacon Month. But I still have one more bacon filled treat to share with you and I have to admit, this is one of my favorites. I’ve never been a big potato salad fan. I don’t know if its the texture or the mayo but there’s just something about it that doesn’t scream “pick […]

Southern Pecan Pie with Bacon

Southern Pecan Pie with Bacon

Hello and happy Monday, Sweetie! Last week I told you about my first adventure mixing bacon and dessert with yummy Chocolate Covered Bacon S’mores and now that I’ve started…I can’t stop! Good ol’ fashioned pecan pie has always been a favorite at our house, especially when served slightly warm with a big scoop of ice cream on top. Melty and delicious! So when pouring over recipes trying to find classics that would taste good with a lil’ bit o’ bacon added to the mix, southern pecan pie seemed like a great place to start. Pecan pie custard has always reminded me of maple syrup in solid form and who hasn’t added extra syrup to their pancakes just […]

Chocolate Covered Bacon S’mores

Chocolate Covered Bacon S'mores

Well hey there, Sweetie! We are halfway through the week and I have  a wacky new recipe for Bacon Month to celebrate! When I first decided to participate in Bacon Month I already had a few “bacon-licious” ideas brewing, most of them based on the classic flavors of a BLT, because, well…I love BLT’s. But after experimenting and finalizing my savory dishes I decided I wanted to get a little adventurous…. I wanted to go sweet. I admit, I was reluctant to join the “add bacon to sweets” craze at first. I guess I just assumed the internet was wrong. Silly, stubborn lady. Well, I have officially learned my lesson and I am super excited to share […]

Pepper Jack Bacon Mac and Cheese

Pepper Jack Mac & Cheese with Bacon

Hola, Sweetie! Today I’m sharing my fifth recipe for Bacon Month and this particular dish proves that no matter how delicious something is…bacon makes it better. My Grandma’s Mac N’ Cheese is the ultimate comfort food. It’s cheesy, creamy… And did I mention cheesy? Despite its near perfection, I decided to switch Gram’s recipe up by adding a little heat…and a lot of bacon. The result is a super simple, super delicious side dish that has become my husbands go to answer for the question “what do you want for dinner?”. You’re gonna love it. Here’s’ what you’re gonna need: 1 cup uncooked pasta (the shape is your choice, I like shells but macaroni is fine) 5 slices bacon, […]

Bacon Apple Coffee Cake

Apple and Bacon Coffee Cake

Happy almost Friday, my friends! For today’s Bacon Month recipe I am branching out from my BLT inspired bacon dishes with a super-dee-duper delicious coffee cake that  combines savory and sweet in all the right ways! Now, I admit, I don’t normally have coffee cake or bread type treats for breakfast…but its not because I don’t love them, I do. Trust me. I just can’t wait an hour for a cake to cook before eating breakfast. And if I’m being honest, most mornings I wouldn’t be able to wait 10 minutes for a cake to cook before eating. I wake up hungry (I’m sure that’s no surprise to you), which means I’m normally whipping up a fruit […]
