Shrimp Stuffed Sweet Peppers

One of the most visited posts on my site is about Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos.  It’s gone crazy on Pinterest, on StumbleUpon, on Facebook, on Twitter.  It’s a crowd pleaser and the men love it as much as the women.

Chocolate Covered Candied Bacon Caramels

Guess what this recipe is NOT? Healthy. Nope, not even a little. Chocolate Covered Candied Bacon Caramels aren’t remotely healthy, but they are entirely delicious.  soft. Creamy.

Candied Bacon and Bourbon Cocktail

As you may know, I work for a sugar company behind the scenes.  The best sugar company, in my opinion – Dixie Crystals.  Being from the South, I try to support the South, and Dixie Crystals is right there.  Plus, they are so good to me.  Who wouldn’t love that kind of setup? Every month […]

Pork Belly, Jalapeno and Duck Breast Poppers

Don’t run off!! I know these ingredients aren’t the norm in the everyday kitchen.  Heck, they aren’t even easy to get around here, but believe me – If I can get them, YOU can get them.  And I didn’t even have to search long and hard.  And I will tell you something else…the search will […]

Chocolate Covered Bacon Chocolate Kiss Cookies

Chocolate Covered Bacon. Browned Butter. Chocolate Chips. Yeah…I put all of this into one delicious cookie.
