My love for bacon is not a secret. I will eat it as a meal just the way it is, but I always look for ways to make it even better. I was making a southwest salad and decided I wanted to put bacon on it...this is the result.
This is one of my grandmother's recipes that has been a part of our family gatherings for as long as I can remember. It is a must have for us. It is quick, easy, and delicious. It is almost always the first bowl to go empty. This recipe was featured by the Minnesota Vikings as part of their game day apps during my time in Minneapolis.
This cheese dip makes a great addition to any spread. Perfect for entertaining at home since it can be made ahead of time and ready whenever your guests arrive. Serve it with chips, crackers, and/or fresh cut vegetables.
This is another family standard around Christmas time. This dish can be made ahead of time and then baked when needed making it an easy addition to any gathering. It's best served hot, but holds up well over time. Serve with an assortment of crackers, crostini, or chips.
These are a wonderful treat enjoyed plain or as I used them, in place of croutons on a salad. This is a very basic recipe I made for a specific dish. The possibilities for these are truly endless. Let your imagination and personal tastes guide you when making these for yourself. They are definitely enjoyed as fresh as possible.
This bacon is so good it turns vegetarians into meat eaters. This is a perfect addition to any gathering. It can be served all by its self or added to any of your favorite burgers or sandwiches. The possibilities are endless.
Fresh sweet corn might be one of my favorite Midwest ingredients. Here we make a tradition Mexican street food, Elote. We served this for the first time at Dotzy's during the first ever Kiddos Who Care Market. It was such a hit, we put it on our seasonal menu.
