    Love, love, love this video series, Kelly! The opening and closing music is happy and perfect for Fridays. It always makes me want to do the “Just a Taste Jig.” ;) You do such a fine job. And, candied bacon? I’m there! You always manage to take a more difficult recipe then simplify it. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend!
