The sound of a cold night echoing with the crack and smack of a round hard hockey puck that is being hurdled towards it's goal sounds amazing. It breaks the night silence. Tonight on my night walk I stopped by the local hockey rink and watched the young and old players crisscross their way across the ice. The flood lights shadowed their faces and bodies so they became gray outlines moving swiftly like floating ships with a strong wind in their sails. The night quiet can so easily be broken with the crunch of snow or crackle of ice underneath our feet. The steel blades cutting into the frozen ice makes sound waves so strong they beg me to stop and listen. I love these sounds, do you?
I have an announcement. Chocolatier School. I am embarking on a 4 month journey into the world of chocolate making. A year ago, when my life looked so differently, I would have never expected to find myself blogging let alone pursuing a class in chocolate making?! Sometimes, the voice we often ignore, speaks loud enough for us to hear, listen to and even respond to with an appropriate action. I am thrilled that I can be challenged into trying new things.... especially when it comes to chocolate!
Now.... Candied Bacon.... It tastes delicious. Do it right and you may never go back to pan fried bacon again.
Candied Bacon Recipe
Bacon of choice - I used Willow Creek Bacon - Amazing bacon. The best if you ask me. If you live in Madison area..you must try it out!
Oven to 300. Line a large rimmed jelly roll pan or baking sheet with parchment paper. Take two cooling racks and steady them in the pan. Lay bacon on the cooling racks. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake for 30 minutes. Make sure your racks are over the pan. You do not want bacon grease dripping on the floor of your oven. Check after 30 minutes. Bacon should be nice and brown and flat and you should be able to smell the bacon and burnt sugars. Let cool and enjoy.
Loads of foodie love with a side of candied bacon..... xoxoxo Megan
