  • Bacon Green Chile “Jam”

    August 8, 2012DishinandDishes

    Savory is the inspiration for this Bacon Onion Green Chile Jam recipe. I’m obsessed with savory. Upon reaching 40, my tastebuds somehow switched from  obsessively sweet and sugary to insanely in-love with savory. Give me the choice between a cupcake and a handful of smoked almonds, I’ll take the almonds every time now. Add to…

  • Bacon Mushroom Ragout

    April 27, 2010DishinandDishes

    Ragout (pronounced ra goo) is nothing more than a cooked slow dish.  Technically, it is a stew involving something thick, rich and well-seasoned. It can, but doesn’t require meat. This ragout has the best of meats…bacon… and paired with the mushrooms? All is well with the world at this moment. Take 5 slices of bacon.  I…
