Hi guys.

I’ve put pickles on something you’re not supposed to put pickles on again.

I’m sorry.

But listen, I’m having this thing with burgers right now. I took my kids to In-n-Out for our Christmas Eve dinner – did I tell you guys that? We defininitely had animal fries and double doubles in between making cookies for Santa.

And I’ve been thinking about burgers since then but, you know, New Years resolutions or whatever. So going into this long weekend I told myself I’d get In-n-Out by myself on Tuesday if I was good the entire weekend and then you know what happened yesterday?

Snow day.

A. SNOW. DAY.

In central Texas.

It didn’t snow. It was 19 degrees and I’m happy I didn’t have to go anywhere but I either needed snow or a burger in my life.

Maybe today if it warms up enough for me to leave the house.

This post originally published on September 30, 2011 and was updated October 23, 2017. It’s one of my oldest and favorite recipes. 

The first time I ever made these Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies – over 6 years ago – was the first time I realized what a food blogger weirdo I was.

Food bloggers love bacon.

Okay, yeah, everyone loves bacon but food bloggers love to put bacon in places where bacon usually doesn’t belong.

Cookies, ice cream, rice krispies treats, pretty much everything.

I mean, I have a bacon egg and cheese sandwich on a glazed doughnut pretty much every Saturday morning of my life.

And you can think that’s weird but I have made everyone in my life try them and no one’s complained yet.

Heeeey guys, happy Friday!

Can I tell you about the first time I ever got a mean comment on this blog?

It was my Ranch Mac and Cheese from 2010 because yes, I have been blogging my entire life. And the comment was from a man, along the lines of Italian grandmother’s rolling over in their graves.

So I called my then husband in tears because omg, I had offended someone with my mac and cheese. And should I just take the post down? Should I respond to the guy and apologize? Should I just leave the internet forever?

No, I am not dramatic at all.

 

But yeah, I’m telling you this because I still brace myself any time I take a classic food and make it a little weird because of that one jerk that decided to leave a nasty comment 7 years ago.

Y’all don’t even want to know the comments I got after those Cubano Tacos.

Hey guys!

Is everyone adjusted to school now?

We pretty much are but I feel like I’m forever looking for ways to really streamline to lunch making process.

So I’m trying to find things that I can either make ahead of time or that are just easy to grab and put in a lunchbox without much fuss. But I also want things that are going to keep my kids full throughout the day.
