Add bacon to the fry pan, heat it up, watch out for hot grease, and flip away. If this... …

I promise you'll thank me for it). Just cut up a few slices... …

This is my new favorite way to eat carrots. Simple and inexpensive, but still unique and flavorful. I don't know many people that grill their carrots, but now I'm one of them!

Blackberry Pie Bars Recipe

This Blackberry Danish Bar recipe is a keeper! I'm not usually a big fan of berry desserts and pies, but I love these Danish pie bars! Of course, the crust is my favorite part.

Yum!My mom brought these bars to a holiday gathering a little while ago and I ate... …
