Slow Cooker Corn and Jalapeno Dip

corn and jalapeno dip 2 005

Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day. Mine wasn't so great. On our way to taking my husband to the airport, we discovered my car had a flat tire. It's completely flat, and I don't know how to change them. Tomorrow, I'm going to have to call around the city and ask different car dealerships who can pick my car up and take it in to have a tire replaced. Thankfully, my husband still has his car at home and I can drive that around all week. His car tires were replaced this Fall ...

Maple-Bacon Cornbread Muffins

maple bacon cornbread muffins 042

These muffins have been on my to make list since I bought this brunch magazine a couple of weeks ago. I remember on Christmas Day, we had the sweetest corn bread muffins with chili. They were the best cornbread muffins I've ever had and they were from Famous Daves. They were almost like corn bread cupcakes.  These maple-bacon cornbread muffins remind me of those cornbread muffins. Sweetened with maple syrup instead of refined sugar and with a little bit crispy bacon for some saltiness. The ...

BLT Guacamole

blt guacamole 010

Who doesn't love a good BLT sandwich? It has bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes in it. Speaking of which, I need to make one of those sandwiches soon.It's been awhile. I have a couple friends who don't like bacon, and I still wonder why I'm friends with them?  J/K btw. ;) This guacamole has every element in a BLT sandwich minus the lettuce. I don't know why, but whenever I try to type in guacamole in this blog, I want to spell it as gaucamole instead.  Don't know why, but it's just a habit and I want t ...

Happy 2015! Last year was a good year for this blog, and I can't wait to see what this year brings!

Honey Mustard Bacon Chicken Thighs

Warning: The chicken thighs are cooked in a pan in the oven. Be careful when taking the pan out, so you don't burn yourself like I did! I used an oven mit first, but when I went to take a picture of it, I forgot the oven mit. Ouch that kind of hurt somewhat, but only for a couple of seconds. Hot pan, hot pan! These chicken thighs are flavored with every persons favorite dippin sauce: honey mustard, and then topped with bacon. No need to dip the chicken in any sauce here. Unless you can find a ...

Baked Brie with Maple Bacon Onion Jam

baked brie 028

I got a lot accomplished today! Got my final project done, my portfolio, and Christmas shopping. Now, I can just sit back, relax, and wait until next week when I get 5 days off. That is going to be so nice, looking forward to that. Maple Bacon Onion Jam from Stonewall Kitchen on top of melted brie cheese will change your life! I find the rind on the cheese to be a little nasty, so I cut that all off and melted the cheese in a ramiken. The cheese gets all melty and gooey, and when you take a ...

Brown Sugar Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies

Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Little Smokies - Pork wrapped in even more Porky fat goodness. Mmmmm My heart just stopped pounding for a bit. The first time I ever had these, somebody had brought them for Treat Day. At my old job, we had that every Thursday at 930am. One person would take turns bringing snacks for the week and usually our treat day team, had the most elaborate gourmet snack food. Sure, there were some teams that brought sugary baked treats like donuts and cookies all the time, but ...

Bacon Wrapped Stuffing

bacon wrapped stuffing 027

Bacon wrapped stuffing is the ultimate Thanksgiving appetizer. Screw serving stuffing as a side dish for Thanksgiving this year and make these little puppies instead. :) I first tried bacon wrapped stuffing at a friends house and I remember it being the best thing I ever had at that party.  I asked how it was made and it couldn't be easier. Just take a package of cooked stuffing mix and wrap some bacon around it and pop them in the oven. For my stuffing I added some sausage, cranberries, and ...
