Bacon Dressed Green Beans

Friday, October 15, 2010

I have the secret for making EVERY vegetable, as long as you are a carnivore, taste better. It is not a very well kept secret, since EVERYONE knows about bacon.  This recipe started out as green bean bundles from a cookbook I borrowed from my mother.  The beans were blanched then slow roasted which left […]

Bourbon Bacon Jam

I have been meaning to make this recipe for a long while now. Ever since Kevin on Top Chef and Lisa at Homesick Texan made their versions of bacon jam I have been dreaming of the day when I would make mine.  Like any jam you can make it any flavor you like best.  I […]

Last year I visited my family in Houston and while I was there I had my first taste of Baked Potato Dip.   It is a concoction of sour cream, mayonnaise, bacon bits, green onions, and cheddar cheese which is served with salty potato chips.   Overall the dip is pretty tasty and I have made […]

Pan Seared Chicken with Creamy Polenta and Bacon

I love one pot dishes.    Anything I can do to save washing up dishes after dinner is always welcome.  Aside from making the washing up easier, building the dish in one pan gives you a unique opportunity to develop some pretty robust flavors.  You never lose any fond, the caramelized bits that get stuck […]

Let’s talk about party food, shall we? When I host, or attend and help cook for, a cocktail party I like to think about finger foods and two-bite dishes that are easy to eat, pretty and not too messy.   I like savory dishes that stand up to a variety of cocktails and beers, and nothing […]

Tex-Mex Potato Cheese Soup

I’ve established that I used to be in a potato rut.  No longer, I am happy to report, and this recipe proves it. Potato soup is something I love to eat but never really make.   The last recipe I tried made a large pot of what can best be described as wall paper paste.  So, […]

Pasta with Gruyere and Butternut Squash

I’ve said before that butternut squash and I were not always such good friends. Once I discovered that I did not hate butternut squash – I liked it quite a lot in fact – I began to try new recipes so that I could add this tasty squash into my Fall recipe rotation.  This recipe was […]

Would you believe me if I told you stuffed chicken was something you could make during the week?   I would not have believed you until now.  This is the perfect make ahead dinner, just get the chicken breasts stuffed and trussed and stash in the fridge for dinner up to two days ahead.  If […]

Yes, Cheddar Bacon Cookies.  Now, before you ask, no this is not a sweet cookie.  It is a savoury cookie perfect for appetizers for serving with a salad or soup.  They are so good! These cookies are addictive.  They are the perfect base for savoury spreads and toppings, but are just as delightful all on […]
