Banana Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting and Bacon Sprinkles

Most days I like to think I eat meals that are pretty healthy. Green smoothies for breakfast. A salad or veggies with dinner are a must. Red meat usually no more than once or twice a week. But today we’ll deviate just a bit. We’re going to put all that healthy eating on hold. Today [...]

Maple Glazed Shortbread Cookies with Bacon Sprinkles

Bacon. We all love it. Well, unless you’re a vegan, vegetarian, or just abstain from pork products of any kind due to religious beliefs. I think it’s fair to say that the majority of meat eaters enjoy consuming this salty, slightly fatty, could-potentially-be-used-as-currency food. Whether it’s smoked (bacon), unsmoked (pancetta), candied, or deep fried, we [...]

The REAL Reason I Have Dogs

ARE YOU GONNA DROP IT? HUH HUH? DROP IT PLEEEEASE.

Dogs are called man’s best friend for a reason. Some folks like them because they are constant companions. Some because they are a part of the family (and never tell me I look fat). Others enjoy participating in athletic pursuits with their pups. But most people would never admit to one of my favorite reasons. [...]

I work out. Yup. The girl who bakes at least once a week and makes ice cream every other week works out. Sometimes I even use weights. For a while now I’ve been trying to work out at least five days a week, for about 30 minutes each time. I know some of you may [...]

Maple Cinnamon Cupcakes

The other day my 2-year-old said something that made me a little sad but was totally true. Very innocently, after she gave me a hug, she said, “Mommy, your tummy wiggles.” At first I laughed. And then I felt a slight sting to my ego. It’s not like I have or every really wanted super [...]

Bacon: Nature’s Greatest Miracle

See? I even bring it with me. Have bacon, will travel.

Hello, my name is DG and I have a pretty serious addiction to nitrate-laden pork products. (Hello, DG.) In all seriousness, I never met a strip of bacon I didn’t like. And there isn’t much I like more than bacon. Unless it’s potatoes. Especially if it’s potatoes with bacon and cheese. Also? I like bacon. [...]

Tastes Like Chicken

This chicken does NOT actually taste like chicken. Go figure.

We have kids with food issues so we have to get pretty darn creative around here sometimes. Not only do they have stoopid food allergies, but they also have texture issues when eating. You know, like sensory issues? In other words PICKY EFFING EATERS. One kid won’t eat anything red. Red is his favorite color. [...]

We teach you how NOT to raise a serial killer, how to sell the kama sutra to your boss, how to reduce kitchen labor by cooking like a bachelor (btw the fork blender idea rocks!) and so.much.more. Take Anissa for instance. The other day, she said on Facebook–and [...]

How To Make Bacon Even More Enjoyable In One Simple Step

I never really believed that bacon could be made better in any way, because bacon is the candy of the meat world, but the Palinode has proved me wrong (yet again. Shhh).

EZPZ: Pig Candy Chunks

Holiday mornings with kids can be HECTIC. Duh. A few years ago I lost my mind and agreed to give my parents a break and have the entire family over for the holidays. I haven’t quite recovered. It went off fabulously, but the hit of the morning were the Pig Candy Chunks I made for [...]

Holy balls! Christmas is two days away! If you’re like me (semi-broke & moderately lazy yet full of good intent) you will love this last minute Christmas gift idea. I’ve done this before for birthdays & it’s been highly successful. Especially if you keep it personal & entertaining. What you do is, send your loved [...]
