Hello Folks!

Well, fresh off the big announcement from our last post, it would seem hard to come up with anything as significant, but if there’s anything that compete with impending fatherhood for my attention, it’s bacon.  Ok, ok, it’s not really a fair competition, but I’d say bacon is amazing enough of a food to occasionally distract me.

Ain’t No Fakin’ These Bacon Burgers

I’m confident most people have had a burger with bacon on it, and I am likewise confident that most people have the following complaint: there’s not enough!  Oh sure, there’s a slice or two, but despite its assertive flavor, it get’s lost to sheer mass of the bun, patty, and toppings.  Well not today!  Chopped bacon will make up about half the mass of the burger patty in this bacon burger recipe – it’s not just a strip or two slapped on top –  so unless you take some odd, grazing bite, you’ll get a full punch of bacony goodness.

I hear the rest of the country has winter.  Here in Houston, we may have February, but winter it is not.  It was 85 degrees this week.

Does that stop me from eating soup?  Heckkkkkk no!  I love a good soup, mainly because they’re so darn easy to make, and they always make the house smell amazing while they cook.

Take this Black Bean and Sweet Potato Soup.  The recipe couldn’t be simpler, and even better, you can make it in advance and freeze it until you’re ready to eat.  Serve it up with some fresh Amish Potato Rolls, and I would call that the perfect winter feast.

Even if it feels like spring….
