Leek and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

What do you do when you have a bunch of mushrooms on your hands? Why, stuff them, of course! Mushrooms don’t have to be a side character in all of your cooking. Why not give them a starring role and see just how well they can shine? With all of the nutrients they pack, it…

Broccoli Salad with Crispy Bacon

Eat more broccoli. That’s what all the health experts say no matter which diet they’re peddling. It’s pretty much an undisputed vegetable that has fiber, minerals, and even protein.

Add potatoes and simmer in chicken broth. Puree everything, and you’re done. The result is a creamy, hearty soup with a whole…

Bacon, Avocado, and Arugula Flatbread

This dish took me by surprise in how filling it turned out to be. When I originally measured out the batter I thought that it would barely serve two people, so I also prepared a small side dish in case we weren’t full. Instead, I was satisfied after eating one piece (or corner) of the…
