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 […]

Peach, Blue Cheese and Prosciutto Bruschetta

Well hello again, Sweetie! Welcome back to our monthly Foodie Extravaganza! If this is your first time joining us, the Foodie Extravaganza is a monthly party hosted by bloggers who love food! Each month we incorporate one main ingredient into recipes to share with you and this month that ingredient is one of my favorite summertime treats…PEACHES! A few weeks ago I told you about our upcoming peachy party when I shared this oh-so-delicious Peach & Prosciutto White Pizza and this appetizer was inspired by a lot of the same flavor combinations. I don’t know if I just have cured meat on the brain because of Bacon Month, but if you ask me there are no 2 things more delicious together than […]

Easy BLT Pasta

Easy BLT Pasta

Howdy, Sweetie! Welcome to day 2 of BACON MONTH! My favorite month. Yesterday I told you about my efforts to keep it healthy this month by sharing some BLT inspired recipes and this easy peasy BLT pasta is guaranteed to please! What’s that? Just because you add lettuce and tomato to a dish doesn’t mean its healthy!? Psh. We don’t tolerate that kind of negativity here! Sometimes you just need some bacon. And sometimes you just need to not feel guilty about it. Which is why you need to whip yourself up a big ol’ portion of this… And hey! Look at all those beautiful tomatoes! It’s kinda like you’re eating a salad. Ok, so I took it one too […]
