Bacon, Broccolini, and Roasted Tomato Quiche

Today, we brunch. And pi(e). All at once!!

I wanted to make a delicious, decadent recipe for Easter brunch to share with you guys today, and couldn’t help but notice that tomorrow is the biggest nerd holiday of the year – pi day!! Since I am all about the two-for-one bang for your holiday buck (and am also a giant nerd), this “breakfast pie” (a.k.a. quiche) was just the ticket.

Sweet and Spicy Bacon Brussels Sprouts

It’s officially November, and you know what that means….

THANKSGIVING!!!

I can barely contain my Thanksgiving excitement until the calendar flips over to November. It’s just the best, smushiest holiday ever and I love all Thanksgiving food so much. (Besides cranberry sauce. Cranberry sauce can go.) I look forward to our family’s Thanksgiving literally all year, so by the time November comes around, I already have visions of stuffing and sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie dancing in my head. It’s a tad embarrassing, but I don’t care – I know I have some Thanksgiving-dork soulmates out there, right?

Maple Bacon French Toast Cups

Will I ever stop showing you recipes with “maple bacon” in the title?

Let’s be honest – probably not. The combination is just too good, people.

So let’s deal with the 500 pound bacon elephant in the room – bacon has not exactly had the best week, huh? To be honest, I’m not too perturbed by all of the processed-meat-craziness right now. My theory on bacon (and anything else decadent and delicious) remains the same: if you’re eating a pound of bacon for breakfast every day, you’re doing something wrong. If you’re using it sparingly to flavor your adorable little French toast cups, you’re doing something very, very right.

BBQ Chicken Bacon Nachos

bbq chicken bacon nachos // my bacon-wrapped life

Hellooooo first football Sunday of the year!!

This is the kind of thing where, if I had my shit together, I would have posted this nacho beauty last weekend so you could make it for the first football Sunday of the year. But since last weekend I was busy wedding dress shopping (!!!) and making cookies, I hope you’ll forgive me. Besides, we have an entire glorious five months of football Sundays to look forward to, so I think we’re still cool.

Besides, eating an entire tray of BBQ chicken bacon nachos was not my least favorite way to spend the first football Sunday of the year. In fact, one might say it was THE BEST WAY EVER to spend the first football Sunday of the year. One might definitely say that.
