  1. I love risotto with bacon. I had some once with apple, blue cheese and bacon and it was delicious. I love dishes that use up the odds and ends of the fridge!

  2. I love risotto. I've never added bacon to it, but that's a great idea. Yum.

  3. Sounds delicious. I'm always on the look-out for tasty side dishes, because I get tired of plain old potatoes and rice. This looks so fun, though! Leeks have an amazing flavor, and we all know bacon makes everything I know this is a recipe worth holding on to :D.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better!

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week.

A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
