Bacon and Leek Quiche

It took me many years to perfect my favorite quiche recipe, always striving for the best texture and flavors. This is my go-to quiche recipe that turns out perfect every time. Quiche is always a nice addition to the breakfast table, but equally nice when paired with a salad for lunch or dinner. I think of baking a quiche in 3 steps: the crust (if you are making it at home), the egg filling, and the vegetables/meat/fish filling. The crust […]

Creamy Corn Chowder

Crumbled bacon with this hearty corn chowder is a match made in heaven. Sweet corn is blended together with potatoes and heavy cream to create a creamy chowder. Blend the entire batch of soup if you like it extra creamy, or leave some unblended if you want a little more texture to your chowder. Either way, you will love how creamy and filling this soup is and how easy it is to make. Serve this corn chowder as a side […]

Creamy Asparagus Soup

Now, we both love to eat asparagus, but this was just way too much to eat before they go bad. I started thinking about what we could do with all […]

Cauliflower Fried “Rice”

I’m not one for health food, but sneaking vegetables into classic dishes is a great way to get away with eating bacon-fried rice as a healthy dinner. Cauliflower is great as its own thing (roasted in the oven as a side dish), great in the place of meat (as in my cauliflower tacos), and great in the place of grains and starch (this recipe). Come to think of it, cauliflower is just plain great. Cauliflower: an unlikely superhero. Now that […]

Bacon or Magic Bullets?

Would you give someone a place to stay for 6 packages of bacon? Would you get a bacon tattoo for 200 packages of bacon? It sounds pretty outrageous, but there are people willing to barter their goods, their time, yes, even their skin, in exchange for bacon. Josh Sankey was given 3,000 lbs of bacon and told to barter his way from New York City to Los Angeles. People are trading everything from food to a place to stay, all […]
