Bacon Rose Bouquet | Dawn's Recipes

Firstly, let me apologize for not posting this before Valentine’s Day. I couldn’t very well make it in advance since I was giving it to my husband. I had to wait till he was at work today, otherwise the telltale aroma of bacon filling our house would have given it away. Plus, he reads my blog. If you’re not celebrating Valentine’s Day till the weekend, I’ve still got you covered. Otherwise, why not Pin this now and you’ll have it ready for next Valentine’s Day, or for Father’s Day, or for that special someone’s birthday? … Continue Reading →

I’m still sharing lots of ideas on my Facebook page, though. Sometimes they’re older recipes of mine that are seasonally appropriate, other times they’re links to wonderful recipes I’ve discovered elsewhere on the web. This particular recipe … Continue Reading →

Meat and Bean Chili

I think I’m enjoying the winter CSA I joined even more than I enjoyed the summer/fall CSA. Both are great, but the winter version includes such items as locally raised meats, cheeses, milk, and even root beer in addition to the late harvest/cold storage fruits and veggies. Our most recent share included a pound of ground goat meat. If you’ve never had goat, it’s similar to but gamier than lamb. It can replace beef in just about any dish, and it stands up particularly well in spicier recipes. … Continue Reading →
