Chocolate Bacon Cookies February 18, 2011

With both my pregnancies, I really didn’t crave anything…except for some bacon. So, I couldn’t resist when a fellow Burgh blogger posted a recipe for Chocolate Bacon Cookies. For me, it was the perfect combination of salty and sweet, just what I wanted. The batch made about 5 dozen drop cookies. I am not denying that I was taste testing both the batter and the cookies throughout the process. They won’t make the Christmas Cookie list, but they are definitely something to enjoy every once in awhile.

Lucky Biscuits (ala “Burgh Baby”) February 10, 2011

I am a huge fan of breakfast, but my preference is to have breakfast for dinner (or after dark at a great Myrtle Beach locale, Pan Am). One of my favorite bloggers, Michelle/Burgh Baby, posted a great recipe for Lucky Biscuits, and make sure you check out her story behind them! It was a typical, cold February night when I decided to whip up a batch of them myself. Paired them with some hashbrowns, they made a perfect dinner. The best part is that it made me realize I can make my daughter her own version since I made my own biscuits instead of using the canned ones (hers would be made with soy milk, and the ONLY reason I made my own is that I didn’t have any canned on hand). This was a delicious meal that we will definitely be making again. Thanks Michelle!

(Excuse the mess…I didn’t almost burn down my house because I learned from Michelle; however, I apparently was still very sloppy. These seriously melted in my mouth, so the mess didn’t matter to me.)
