  1. Oh Shooooooot…. this is the recipe I’ve been wanting to make but purposefully NOT made because I know I’ll be addicted! Looks devine!

  2. 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!
