Baked Potato with Cheese and Bacon

Oh Yeah! My mouth is already watering just looking at this picture! Baked Potato with Cheese and Bacon. I will tell you that it tastes SO good! To make this dish, my boyfriend and I took a special trip to a local Italian store to buy these delicious fresh cheeses. The milk for the cheese is from happy cows that are eating fresh and juicy grass on Italian fields. Ok, maybe I am exaggerating a little bit, but the cheese is really very fresh and delicious. The bacon brings so much flavor to the whole dish, so I had to make some extra for my boyfriend. It is not the most healthy meal and it does take a little bit of time to bake it (a bit more than an hour), but it’s worth it. You and your family will love it, so print out this recipe to have a copy in your kitchen....more

Maple Bacon Baked Beans

This is one of those dishes I hardly ever make, but when I do, I always surprise myself at how many servings I can eat, which explains why I hardly ever make them.Baked beans, when made the way I think they taste best, rank right up there with desserts in the sugar department. Why is it that something so savory is so sweet? And why do I love that flavor so much?...more
