Creamy Alfredo with Bacon and Peas

creamy alfredo with bacon and peas 011

Bacon, peas, and pasta in a hot tub full of creamy bacon-y alfredo sauce. That's whats for dinner tonight folks. Drop your dinner plans today, go to the grocery store, and get all the ingredients to make this now. Or.... you could always just go tomorrow and get the ingredients. It's almost 7pm here, and by now I would assume most people would have eaten already. This is one of the most amazing alfredo sauces I've had in awhile. Why? Because the alfredo sauce is cooked in leftover bacon that ...

Cheese Curd Burger

cheese curd burger 004

This weekend went by so fast and can you believe next weekend is already Memorial Day weekend?!  Does anybody else find it weird, that Memorial Day is a week early this year? I'm so used to it being the last weekend in May. It's been so shitty cold and rainy here lately. Today, there was sleet. I kid you not. In the middle of May for crine out loud. It's only in the 30's and it better start warming up again. Since Memorial Day is this coming weekend, everybody will be getting out their grill and ...

Spicy Bean Tostadas

spicy bean tostadas 016

Sorry if any of you had some trouble connecting to this site today. I noticed it was down in the morning, so I contacted my host and they fixed it. Then it was down again this afternoon for a bit, and the tech guy said I had to buy some more RAM for my site. Talk about frustrating. Hopefully that doesn't happen again. What do I love about Tostadas? They're like a Taco, but they're flat tacos. You can top them with whatever Mexican ingredients you have in your fridge. That, and they take ...

Beef Stir Fry

beef stir fry 010

This weekend went by super fast. There was so much going on and it was the very first time I had ever been to a bridal shower where the future bride and groom were both present. This must be a new thing? Back when I got married the bride was the only one at the bridal shower.  The food was super good. I'm often asked what I like to take pictures of and when I tell people, I just say things that don't move and sit still! Just look at these meat and cheese trays! Everything was super ...

Sweet and Spicy Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites

spicy bacon wrapped chicken 068

Do you think I post enough bacon recipes on this blog? Nope. There can never be too many bacon recipes. Oh, and sorry about the amount of chicken recipes I've been posting lately too. Had some chicken left over from those kabobs that I made earlier this week and had to get rid of it somehow. Bacon + Chicken is always a win. These are really fun to make too. Wrap some bacon around some chicken bites. Poke a tooth pick in the middle so the bacon stays in its place.  Not the whole slice of ...

Trisha Yearwood’s Cowboy Lasagna

trisha yearwoods cowboy lasagna 010

  Trisha Yearwood's Cowboy Lasagna is packed full of ground beef, sausage, pepperoni, fire roasted tomatoes, and layered with cheese and noodles for one delicious lasagna! This lasagna has everything a cowboy could ask for. Wait, I'm not a cowboy so how should I know that? I guess after  watching so many episodes of The Pioneer Woman or Trisha Yearwood's show, I now know what cowboy's like. Lots of meat and real spicy food.  In this lasagna, there's ground beef, Italian sausage, pe ...

Bacon, Pineapple, Chicken Kabobs

chicken and bacon kabobs 011

You guys need to make these kabobs at your next out door BBQ! Bacon weaved in between  chicken, pineapple, onions, and bell peppers, and then covered in a pineapple glaze. These are sooooooooo good. I mean, I've seen bacon pretty much with all these ingredients... Bacon wrapped chicken, bacon wrapped pineapple, and the smell of bacon and onion cooking together in a pan is pretty much to die for. How can these be bad? Grilled onions and bell peppers are my favorite, and if you've never had ...

Spicy Smoked Chicken Thighs

smoked chicken thighs 008

I think it is SAFE to say that grilling/smoking season is finally here. Yay! Today was a beautiful day outside.  I came home from work and fired up the smoker for these chicken thighs and asparagus. It has been so dry here lately, that I've been afraid to turn on the smoker or grill. There's fire hazard warnings posted all over the state and they don't want people starting fires. One did break out by the Canadian border the other day ago. My favorite chips to smoke with are applewood. ...
