Broccoli Alfredo Tortellini with Bacon

There’s tortellini, and then there’s alfredo tortellini and then there’s alfredo tortellini with broccoli in it… and THEN there is Broccoli Alfredo Tortellini with BACON. BACON! This stuff is already filthy rich and then I added bacon and I basically went into a delicious cheese covered bacon coma. I think if I was to become a vegetarian, (don’t worry, Dad. I won’t) I would probably miss bacon the most. If I was a pig, I’d probably be a cannibal. Weird thought. One of the thi

Broccoli Salad

Yay, broccoli! At least that’s what your family will be saying after trying this salad. I actually don’t know that anyone has ever really used that sentence in a real life situation but I thought I’d see how it sounded. And it sounds a little ridiculous. Broccoli is really good, don’t get me wrong… But it’s definitely not cake. So that’s why in this recipe we trash it up with some other really good stuff and call it a salad… Because it does have broccoli in it after all. I lo

Loaded Ranch Potato Soup

I love potato soup, but this is not your average potato soup. It has something extra, so now we can extra love it. It reminds me of something my grandpa used to make that we called “Sticky Potatoes.” Sticky Potatoes were SO good and SO unhealthy. There was almost more cream cheese, sour cream and heavy whipping cream than actual potato. They. Were. Amazing. I seriously need to go to the gym after just reading that paragraph, though. Seriously. This totally reminds me of that,

French Onion Grilled Cheese with Bacon

Famous Julie gave me a panini press/griddle and I’ve been turning out grilled cheese sandwiches like it’s my job. This variation is one that I have been wanting to try for a while now. I have always been a fan of French Onion Soup and a fan of grilled cheese sandwiches. The thought of combining them made my heart go pitter patter and all heart eyes emoji. PLUS BACON. I try to put bacon on as many things as humanly possible. Bacon covered bacon. So simple it’s genius. Anyway,

Grilled Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza

Because pizza. Because grilled pizza is my newest obsession. *Disclaimer: I have a lot of obsessions. Tell me you’ve tried it. Tell me you will try it after you see this recipe. This grilled chicken bacon ranch pizza might be one of my new favorites. It’s SUPER simple and has loads of fresh ingredients over top. I love fresh tomatoes and fresh basil on pizza and on this baby, those ingredients totally make it. I wish I could tell you I grew them myself. Someday I will be able

Campfire Burger

This burger is so good it’ll make you want to slap yo mama. I’ve never really understood that phrase. Are we slapping our momma’s because we can’t handle the exquisite tastes in our mouths? Or… are we slapping our momma’s because they never made this burger for us and we had to live without it for so long? Well, I am putting an end to the madness. Not just because I’m a mom now… and I don’t want to get slapped. But also because that is anarchy. If everybody slapped their moms

Classic Blue Cheese Wedge Salad

Wedge salads are my new favorite way to consume vegetables. And bacon. But do you really need a favorite way to consume bacon? I think just the action of eating bacon in and of itself is everyone’s favorite way to eat bacon. Have you ever met a human on this planet that doesn’t LIKE bacon? I’m not talking about vegetarians or people who don’t eat pork for religious reasons, I’m talking about someone who by their own will and choice decides that bacon just doesn’t taste good t

World’s Best Baked Beans

The most magical of the fruits. You guys are probably way too mature to get that joke. Unfortunately, I’m sitting here giggling to myself and singing that song over and over in my head. Great. Now it’s stuck in there. ANYWAY… These are hands down the best baked beans in the history of the entire world. I mean do you see the bacon on there? Bacon makes everything better just by being around. I automatically feel like a better person just by being in the proximity of bacon. Thi

Twice Baked Potato Casserole

Have you ever had twice baked potatoes before? This is like the same thing, just like, one thousand times easier. You don’t have to dig out all the potatoes once they’ve been baked and refill those tiny fragile little potato skin boats with filling. You boil the potatoes until they are soft and then mix it with a ton of delicious ingredients. Like sour cream and cream cheese. You know, healthy stuff. Let’s be real, it’s the cheese and bacon that packs the real punch. … On yo

Bacon & Rosemary Chicken

I love to read cooking magazines, AND cookbooks, AND cooking blogs, AND kitchen appliance manuals with recipes in them, AND wrappers that have recipes, AND basically just about anything that has an ingredient list on it. I’m not hard to please. This recipe is from a Taste of Home Magazine that I bought a while back, so I cracked it open and although there were many excellent recipes in there, this was the one I picked to make first. The chances that the first dish I would try
