Bacon Steaks

Hmmn, can one item actually push you to write a blog? This bacon sure as hell helped.

This weekend I bought some thick cut smokey bacon from Whole Foods, it was so thick it reminded me of thinly sliced steaks – of BACON. After taking the pictures of the bacon cooking, I decided I would have to now share this with anyone who is listening.

The bacon was mostly meaty and would be incredible on a BLAT (Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado and Tomato) Sandwich. Thick cut bacon is always great for salads, I was using this bacon for my Roasted Garlic Potato Salad with Bacon and Carmalized Onions. I’ll update this with the Potato Salad recipe later.

Crispy Bacon, so thick – like little bacon steaks. Hmmn, don’t get me started.

The reviews I write

When I first found Yelp, I used it to research good restaurants, then I found a love for writing reviews. After awhile, I was making friends and attending events. Now, it’s become a part of me and I’m having a great time doing it.

I love taking pictures of my food and sharing my experiences. I know it can seem odd when I pull out my iPhone and snap pictures of our meals at dinner, but I really do think that some people will choose a restaurant over another if there is a tempting picture showing you exactly what you are going to get.

I seek out new restaurants and new food experiences, trying things I would have never tried before, getting new ideas and bringing all that back to my own kitchen.

Check out my reviews here:

Yay! This is my new blog.

So after months of talking about writing a blog, I finally decided to do it. I have to say the hardest part was picking the name, my first choice already taken ~ so it’s “This girl really cooks”, I hope that doesn’t sound too egocentric. Oh well, here we go 🙂

I’d like to share with you my reviews, recipes, photos and stories. I love to share things with my friends and hope that this can become a place for sharing those ideas and learning new ones. I have so many ideas of what I’d like this to be, so bear with me as I collect my thoughts – I will start posting soon.
