Grilled Chicken BLAT Salad with Avocado Ranch Dressing

I really feel like you can never have too many flavor packed salads in your repertoire! And it's just a bonus if your salad includes healthy ranch dressing. As a kid I was a ranch dressing fanatic, I mean I would eat pretty much anything if it was drowned in ranch. In fact... my cousin and I were famous in ... Read More

Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Pizza with Hashbrown Crust

I'll take savory over sweet any day for any meal, which is a little strange since I've always had a sweet tooth in the past. But something's changed over the years, and I'd choose to eat anything to do with cheese/bacon rather than a muffin, without a second thought. I had the idea for this breakfast pizza during the cauliflower pizza ... Read More

Green Beans with Bacon Mushroom Sauce

This recipe is loosely based off a homemade green bean casserole I used to make that had several cups of heavy cream in it. But somewhere along the line, I decided that for me heavy cream was wasted on green beans, and that I'd rather have it over pasta thank you very much! So instead, these green beans are surrounded ...

Apple Pie Pancakes with Bacon Vanilla Bean Syrup

This is my ideal weekend brunch on a plate. First there's a stack of pancakes which is almost mandatory, and they're made even better by the fact there's apple slices hiding in there, (just like my mom used to make). As if the perfect stack of pancakes wasn't enough already, I went ahead and gilded the lily with some Bacon ... Read More

Bacon Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice

What is it about bacon that transcends the line between sweet and savory, making everything it's added to taste better!?! Bacon doughnuts - um... yes please, or we can do a 180º and add bacon to kimchi fried rice - either way it's equally good. This recipe started off as just kimchi fried rice, but I had a partial package of ... Read More

Cajun Shrimp and Cauliflower Grits with Greens

We have a local Cajun restaurant here that has the most amazing shrimp and grits, it's the kind of meal that day dreams are made of! Every time we go, I try really hard to branch out and order something different, but I just can't do it. The shrimp and grits are so good that it's become my standing order. ... Read More

Bacon Kale Caesar Salad

We're pretty big into Caesar Salad around here, in fact, it's one of the only things that we eat on a regular basis! It's also our favorite date-night recipe to make because it's so easy, and we never get tired of it! After you make a recipe with someone many times, it starts to become easy enough to do in ...

Bacon Balsamic Vinaigrette over Roasted Butternut Kale Salad

The colors of this salad are a reflection of it’s bursting flavor. I always mourn the passing of tomato season, but this year I’m branching out to explore the deliciousness of fall/winter fruits and vegetables. I love the comforting flavors of caramelized butternut in a salad, and baby kale is the perfect complement because it’s a bit more sturdy than … Read More

Bacon Wrapped Chorizo Stuffed Dates

These are my favorite appetizers ever… and I really mean ever! I’ve been making these for special occasions and holidays for years and I’m not alone in my enthusiasm because everyone loves them. The spicy chorizo and creamy filling is sandwiched by sweet Medjool dates and it’s all wrapped up with smoky – salty bacon; utterly addicting.
