Paleo Cauliflower Bacon Fried Rice

cauliflower fried rice recipe featured-0843

Fried rice without rice?! WHAT?! That was exactly my reaction when I first saw this recipe in Nom Nom Paleo Food for Humans by my friends Michelle Tam and Henry Fong. Being the super rice geek that I am: How to cook white rice in microwave How to cook brown rice in microwave Trader Joe’s Quick Cooking Brown rice review …

Broccoli Potato and Bacon Hash

It’s Spring Break and my boys think it’s only right that I make them “weekend breakfasts” every morning, which means I need to channel my inner White on Rice Couple (when they were here last month, Todd & Diane made homemade waffles, bacon to order and pancakes – something different every single morning) and create hearty breakfasts. T&D – you’ve spoiled …

Bacon, Egg and Toast Cups

I’m not normally into cute food. I’d rather have my food look delicious and say, “Eat. Me. Now.” Cute food makes me a little sad and guilty when I take that first bite, especially if the food has an adorable smiley face on it. Poor disfigured thing! Am I right?!  But these Bacon, Egg, and Toast Cups are cute. But …

Peas and Bacon

I honestly had trouble naming this dish. Peas and Bacon? Or Bacon and Peas? In the marketing world, I guess you’d have to consider the target market.

While most of the country is already turned on their heaters and brought out their winter jackets, we’ve been suffering from the unbearable heat with 10,254% humidity until just a few days ago. I envy those of you in cooler states, you get to snuggle under a fuzzy blanket and drink hot chocolate with the mug cradled in your palms …

Roasted Cauliflower with Bacon and Garlic

When a recipe calls for bacon, I instinctively double the amount to cook, because in our household, just-cooked bacon sitting on the counter (even those waiting to be incorporated into a yet unfinished dish) is fair game to steal. Even I can’t resist the urge to take a little nibble here and there, and pretty soon there’s no more bacon …

Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Bacon and Gorgonzola

Garnish is generally the afterthought for the home cook, a sprinkle of herbs to add a splash of color to the dish, a swirl of sauce for a dramatic, decorative flair or a dribble of brandy in French Onion Soup just before serving. Oh well, I take that last one back — in that particular case, the brandy was the …

Lunch today – Manila Clams from I Love Blue Sea, a sustainable seafood online marketplace for consumers. I made a Smoky Clam & Corn Chowder, only using 2 tablespoons heavy cream but a couple strips of bacon! Other ingredients: carrots, celery, potato, corn, onion, white wine, salt and pepper.
