oven cooked bacon

This Berry Citrus Quinoa recipe is a great change of pace for breakfast during the summer.

Using Fresh Basil adds so much flavor to recipes. It’s not just for Italian fare. Try it in Asian Cuisine. I’m growing three variety: Thai Basil, Sweet Basil, and what I suspect is Holy Basil but was mislabeled Thai Basil.

Logan loves muffins. I always try to come up with new, healthy (or at least healthier) varieties. He especially loves these Sweet Potato Carrot Muffins.

Pinwheel Sandwiches are such a fun addition to the lunchbox. Check out my recipe for ABC Pinewheels and suggestions for other filling ideas. But they aren’t just good for lunch boxes…I really like them for my lunch at home. Sometimes ingredients shoved between two pieces of bread gets a bit boring.

Over at Craftzine I show you how easy and mess-free it is to cook bacon in the oven instead of stove top. Definitely my preferred method, especially when I’ve just cleaned my stove. Buh-bye grease splatters!
