• How To Make Perfect Bacon

    3 years ago

    I used to hate making bacon, it left stove tops in such a mess, but this oven method has made my life so much easier. It really is easy to make your own crispy bacon at home, in a matter of minutes.

    I would suggest making a few packs of bacon at the same time. Crispy bacon can be stored in the refrigerator and easily reheated within seconds, in a microwave.

    Last year I've made a ton of Prune Jam, and it went quick. Guests asked for seconds and by the time we shared a few with family and friends, it was down to little.

    Apricots are quite popular in foods, such as yogurt and jams, for its flavor. But also, apricots are no less flavorful and thus make a great candidate for jam.

    So, how about something cool and interesting as a weekend breakfast?! Even though my husband and I both work from home, we hardly get to eat breakfast at the table. Our weekday breakfast consist of leftovers, latte or what ever we can find around the house. This is why weekends have to have something a bit "special" for breakfast.
