“The pig is an incredible animal. It can take an apple – essentially garbage – and turn it into bacon.”
-Jim Gaffigan

While I don’t agree with his assertion that apples are garbage, the pig does give us some pretty amazing eats. I think we all have to take a moment to appreciate just how delicious bacon is. According to the bacon calendar I have hanging in the office (more about that here), it’s sometime referred to as “the conversion meat” for it’s ability to lure vegetarians away from their meatless lifestyles. That’s some power.  And while we certainly love bacon around here either as base for a delicious beef stew, or highlighted a little more prominently in an appetizer, I wanted to take a crack at the origin of bacon: pork belly. A pork belly po-boy to be more specific.Pretzel Pork Belly Po-Boy pairs the sweet richness of pork belly with the bright flavors of a colorful slaw, in one juicy mouthful!

Let’s talk buns, hun.

While some see them as a mere transportation platform for a burger, sandwich, or bratwurst, I would argue that they are integral part of the eating experience. For example, who would want a nice, juicy cheeseburger to fall to the floor because the thin, stale bun suffered catastrophic structural failure? And who hasn’t had the equally miserable experience of having to pry apart a sandwich just to make sure that yes, there really is half an ounce of turkey hidden between two loaves of bread. A good bun makes the whole thing better, and quite frankly, these soft pretzel rolls are good enough to eat all by themselves.Soft Pretzel Rolls are flavorful and satisfying in so many recipes - sandwiches, bratwurst, burgers - or just eaten on their own!

These cookies are so stinking cute I almost hate to eat–

BAAAHAHAHAHA!!

Hooo boy I crack myself up.

Seriously. I loved stuffing these in my mouth. And when I say “them,” I mean roughly a dozen. Okay baker’s dozen. 82 at most.  They just go down so easy!

The only thing that gave me any pause while munching? What to call them. Because you see, not only are these cookies mini, but they also use mini M&Ms. So…mini MINI M&M peanut butter cookies?  Too much?  Too many M’s?

Green Chile Migas

Green Chile Migas: a cheesy, crispy, just-a-little-spicy skillet of breakfast heaven!Green Chile Migas: a cheesy, crispy, just-a-little-spicy skillet of breakfast heaven!

You’ve had one of those weeks.  One of those weeks when a day job turns into a day-and-night job.  Where the weekend is just as busy as the weekdays.  Where all you want are your pajamas and a trashy TV show and a hot plate of comfort food.

Me time?  How about…

MIGAS time!

That was me last week.  Ross was out of town for his job, while I was at the office until midnight, and the entire household was quite grumpy.  Even Delilah’s caterwauling sounded more plaintive than usual.  When Sunday rolled around, I knew what I had to do.  I had to have green chile migas.  There was literally no other option.  And boy did they hit a comfort-food-shaped spot.
