Crispy Veggie Noodle & Bacon Bowl

Crispy Veggie Noodle & Bacon Bowl

Good LAWD I can't get enough of this dish. I've been crushing it post workout lately and adding some shredded chicken in, but it's legit anytime. It's bright, it's fresh, and feels indulgent AF. When I'm looking to add in more fats to my day, I love adding some sliced avocado to the bowl as well. Or, consider adding a couple of poached or fried eggs on top and make a nutritious, satiating breakfast bowl! Dig in, my friends.

Citrus Kale & Bacon Breakfast Bowl

Citrus Kale & Bacon Breakfast Bowl

This is way easier to make than it probably sounds. I just felt like I needed to pander to the blogging world and give this bowl of simplicity an uppity name. I've been eating this for breakfast, lunch and dinner because it's so damn delicious at any time of day.

Crispy Shaved Brussels Sprouts & Bacon

Crispy Shaved Brussels Sprouts & Bacon

Ahhh b-sprouts and bacon. Possibly the best culinary combination since baked sweet potatoes and almond butter............no? I'm alone on the SP/AB front? Whatever, you guys are missing out. 

Bacon Braised Cabbage

Bacon Braised Cabbage

I really only ever considered cabbage from a coleslaw perspective. VERY wrongfully so, apparently. Turns out cabbage is a pretty dope, nutrient-dense veggie that is even tastier braised...in bacon grease...garnished with more bacon. This side dish's piggy pairing makes it a shining star. As the saying goes, everything is better with bacon. 

Paprika Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Paprika Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Be still my heart. Bacon wrapped [insert literally any food here] is my kryptonite. Hell, I'd probably even eat rocks if they were wrapped in bacon. Questioning my sanity? That's ok, I do that on a daily basis. Seafood also generally makes me weak at the knees. So it's only natural that wrapping something as delightful as a scallop with a hunky piece of pig fat makes me go ga-ga. And, true to my lazy form, these are a breeze to prepare.

Single Lady Bacon & Leek Fritatta

Single Lady Bacon & Leek Fritatta

My manfriend likes to get up and go workout most mornings, so he typically grabs a yogurt on the go...that means the large majority of my week, I'm cooking breakfast for one. For that reason, I got myself the cutest little mini cast iron skillet. Let me first say, that if you ain't no single lady and you're cooking for friends or family,  go ahead and triple the recipe to fit a standard 10-inch cast iron skillet. 

Pear & Walnut Fall Salad with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

Pear & Walnut Fall Salad with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

This is the most delicious fall salad. Pears, bacon, walnuts, goat cheese....UGH! Onnnnn point. Throw some grilled chicken or flank steak on top, and you've got yourself a complete meal. Otherwise, enjoy this as a side to just about any fall meal! It's a definite crowd pleaser, so it makes for a good addition to pot lucks and family dinners. That's all!

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Hazelnuts

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Hazelnuts

Brussels sprouts are slowly but surely taking over this blog. Few might argue I have too many b-sprouts recipes, but to ye naysayers, I say "no such thing." They are just so delicious and taste so great with all these different add-ons. So, I offer you yet another fun and unique brussels recipe. Let me know how ya like it!

Bacon Aioli

Bacon Aioli

I mean, honestly...how in the world can any other flavored aioli compete with a bacon aioli? Cue another reason why paleo isn't hard. BACON. AIOLI. The fact that I can slather this creamy goodness all over my hard boiled eggs or morning ribeye (casual...ribeye for breakfast) is just utopia.  Light bulb - this would make for a bomb chicken salad base. Go get ya some!
