Bacon

Bacon Caramel Whiskey Bark

Bacon Caramel Whiskey Bark

Dustin went back to Seattle to tie up some loose ends while I stayed in Los Angeles taking care of the pup and getting oriented for school. I really wanted to send Dustin back to Seattle with a treat for our friends, as a thank you for letting him stay with them and also because…

Momofuku Everything Bagel Bombs with Bacon-Scallion Cream Cheese

Momofuku Everything Bagel Bombs with Bacon-Scallion Cream Cheese

Such a simple idea— bake cream cheese inside bagel dough so that when you bite in, warm cream cheese explodes all over your tastebuds— but so brilliant. What else would I expect from Momofuku? The more I try from their cookbook, the more sad I grow that I didn’t choose to go to school in…

Goat Cheese Cakes with Caramelized Bacon, Plum, and Balsamic Drizzle

Goat Cheese Cakes with Caramelized Bacon, Plum, and Balsamic Drizzle

As you may have heard from Erin, Game of Thrones finally came back. We’ve been waiting for our Season 3 premiere since last year and were getting incredibly excited for the food, drinks, and TV. Even though our neighbors were out of town and we had to push the viewing party back a week, we…

Steamed Bacon Buns

Steamed Bacon Buns

Back when we had our sushi night, we went shopping at the large Asian grocery store where I made an impulse purchase— prepackaged mix to make steamed BBQ pork buns like you get at your favorite dim sum restaurant. The little bag of flour and yeast had been sitting in the cabinet for awhile, but I…

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Pull Apart Bread

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Pull Apart Bread

Super Bowl party hit #2. Just by the name, you could tell this was going to be good. I want to make sure Dustin gets full credit for making this bread. I do make all of the desserts around here, but Dustin makes a lot of things in the kitchen as well. A lot of…

Bacon Jam & Brie Crostini

Bacon Jam & Brie Crostini

There’s a food cart (and now diner) here in Seattle you might have heard us rave about in the past called Skillet that serves up upscale versions of breakfast diner foods as well as fancy chicken sandwiches and burgers. Plus it was through Skillet’s street cart that we were first introduced to poutine and have…

Pumpkin Fried Rice— Take 1

Pumpkin Fried Rice— Take 1

There’s a pretty good Japanese sushi restaurant in Old Town Bellevue called Ginza with a lovely dish that outshines any possible sushi you can order there. Pumpkin fried rice. It is beyond ridiculously good, and the presentation is uber cool. They serve the rice in a hollowed out pumpkin! As you eat the rice, you…

Brown Sugar Ice Cream with Candied Bacon

Brown Sugar Ice Cream with Candied Bacon

In keeping with my recent tradition of adding bacon to desserts (example one and example two), now I have added it to ice cream, brown sugar vanilla ice cream to be specific. I saw this ice cream at a deli when visiting my parents in Evansville, but passed on ordering it to be a little…

Blueberry Bacon Buttermilk Bars

Blueberry Bacon Buttermilk Bars

Intrigued by the title? So was I by this cake when I saw this sorta wacky sounding cake on How Sweet It Is. This cake (with buttermilk substituted for regular milk) seemed like it would be the perfect break from my GRE studying. I put down my books, preheated the oven and got to frying…

Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Actually these are brown butter, candied maple bacon, chocolate chip cookies sweetened with maple syrup and chock full of toasted pecans, but it seemed a little wordy for the title. While the last chocolate chip cookies I made were light and fresh, these were anything but. These were sweet, nutty, salty, chocolatey, savory and just…
