My guilty pleasure is bacon. Mmm-mmm...the smell of bacon cooking on Sunday mornings. I prefer cooking bacon on the stove-top but I came across this recipe and wanted to share it.

I wish I could have been a judge on this panel, in 2008 Michelle Obama won a cookie bake-off against Ann Romney but I bet they were both delicious! I just happen to get my hands on the holiday just in time for Christmas and I know the family will enjoy the First Lady's winning cookie recipe. According to the Mrs. Obama, this is a small indulgence that the FIRST FAMILY enjoys that was passed do to Malia and Sasha by their godmother.

I love quiches, they are simple, quick and diverse meals, as appetizers and great for get-togethers. You can prepare in advance and then heat and serve later. They're delicious for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is a Bacon-and-Cheddar Grits Quiche recipe to add to your family gatherings.
You've done all of the grocery shopping, you've slaved in the kitchen for at least three days with the preparations, baking and cooking to provide your family all the Thanksgiving traditional meals that they love.
Why not let the kids take over the kitchen for the next few days? Don't you deserve it? This is the perfect meal to get the kids involved and hands on AND they will enjoy this healthy meal.
I made this Thanksgiving 2013, I usually adjust the ingredients in all my recipes to make them my own, and so I may have been a little heavy handed on the brandy. None the less, it was still amazing. Let's get right to it. This recipe is the masterpiece of Tasha Smith's mother, who substituted eggnog for the cream when she ran out and it's became an instant hit.
• ingredients 1 1/2 pounds Red Sweet Potatoes or Yams
instructions Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a pie dish with the pie dough and crimp edges. Place sweet potatoes in a stock pot and cover with water by at least 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook for 20 minutes or until very tender. Drain and allow to cool before handling. Peel and discard skins.
Dinner made easier. There's nothing more soothing to the body, mind and soul than a warm southern-style pot pie at the end of a long cold day. Fix these in advance and bake and serve it to your family when you need a break from the kitchen.
2 teaspoons butter
2 c. mixed veggies
2 c. chicken/turkey-roasted (I buy the roasted chicken from Publix)
1 can cream of chicken
1 celery stalk (chopped fine)
1 Pillsbury pie crust (I use the deep dish in the pan)
1 Pillsbury top crust (freezer section)
