Bacon Wednesday: Bacon, cheese and fig jam pinwheels

For your snacking pleasure on this way-too-cold “I want it to be spring” day. Even if it’s 39 degrees out at the end of March, bacon makes everything better. Your tip for the day: Bake your bacon. Four-hundred degree oven. Foil-covered rimmed baking sheet. About 20 minutes depending on the thickness of your bacon. It…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon and pizza

We couldn’t decide. It’s “making silent auction baskets” day at CRC World Headquarters as we get ready for the kick-off party for Oyster Easter Friday at the Bound’ry (7-10 p.m. – food, dancing and the announcement of the royal candidates – ya’ll come). And we had our fabulous volunteer, Susan, here to help. Lunch time…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon and Pepper-Jack Stuffed Crescent Rolls

Betsy does not cook so you should take a look at these spectacular bacon and cheese stuffed crescent rolls and be extremely impressed. Betsy volunteered to provide an offering for Bacon Wednesday this week and found the perfect recipe on Pinterest (where all interesting things live). It only has three ingredients – cooked bacon,  Monterrey…

Bacon Wednesday: Pull-Apart Bacon Cheese Bread

We have volunteers in the warehouse today so naturally we had to offer them some sustenance since it’s about 42 degrees below zero out there. Nothing says lovin’ like some bacon cheese bread. It has no redeeming nutritional value unless you count the flecks of onion and green pepper. I say let’s count them. Pull-Apart…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon, Brown Sugar and Honey Buns

You won’t want these. Really, you won’t.  That is why we have eaten all of them just to save you the trouble. It’s 20 degrees in the warehouse and the Chicks have to keep their strength up. These buttery bites of bacon goodness are from a website called Oh, Bite it! Don’t get flustered. It’s…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon Pepper Jelly Biscuits

Warehouse work is hard. Lots of lifting, toting and pallet jacking around our 5,000-square-foot palace of concrete and cinder block. So the Chicks can justify a bacon splurge every Wednesday. Just to keep our strength up, of course. This is an easy one – sweet, heat and salt. The sweet and heat come from red…

The Chicks are back

We apologize. We’ve been away. But we’re back now. See, here’s how it works in the nonprofit world. Everyone goes all out for about 50 weeks a year. And then around the middle of December we’ve just done all we can do. So, barring an emergency, we just take the rest of the year off….
