Alert! Bacon catastrophe

Listen up, people. This is serious. The drought may have messed with your yard and killed your pansies, but now there is a much more severe consequence. Agricultural experts are predicting a bacon shortage. This, of course, will have a profound impact on one of the nation’s premiere pork events, Bacon Wednesday at the Community…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon Crumble Apple Pie

Ta da! Here, as Jon Stewart says, is your moment of zen. Bacon Crumble Apple Pie. Oh, and there’s cheese in there, too. You will want to make this pie because it’s easy and because it will amaze your friends. We snatched this recipe off of Yummly and changed the apples from Golden Delicious (yuk)…

However, we couldn’t help but notice that we all fixed them a different way. I go with what I think of as the classic: Buttered toast, three strips of bacon, fried egg…

Bacon Wednesday: Roasted tomato and bacon tart

The Chicks have had a bountiful harvest of tomatoes from the community garden at CRC World Headquarters this year. Chick One is the gardener. Chick Two is the consumer since she proudly states that “I don’t stick my hands in dirt on purpose.” That’s O.K. I find gardening – particularly in a small, controllable patch…

Bacon Wednesday: bacon cheese tartlets

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon-wrapped cocktail weenies

This week for Bacon Wednesday, CRC World Headquarters presents bacon-wrapped cocktail weenies. You know you already want one. Or 10.

Next week, dozens upon dozens…
