Fried Green Tomato BLT

Fried Green Tomato BLT

This is not your average blt! Fried green tomatoes are paired with lots of crispy bacon and a spicy aioli for a twist on the classic sandwich! Have you ever had a meal that left you speechless and breathless all at once?  I can honestly say this has only happened to me twice, and both meals were remarkably similar.  They both involved fried green tomatoes and bacon, both had "low country" in the title  and both were sandwiches.  On both … Continue reading →

Cinnamon Pancakes with Candied Bacon

Cinnamon Pancakes with Candied Bacon

       Breakfast for dinner is such a treat, especially when it involves homemade pancakes and brown sugar bacon! There are two foods that my family never gets tired of eating.  Bacon would be the first.  What's not to love about bacon?   I'm not talking about turkey bacon, I don't mess with that stuff.  I'm talking about the salty, crispy, full of fat, greasy, straight from the pig bacon!  The second is breakfast.  My … Continue reading →

Crab and Bacon Mac and Cheese   My mom served a lot of "mangia" when I was a kid.  You might know this as "stew".  No matter what your name is for this type of dish, I call it "blah".  There was nothing more disappointing than asking mom what was for dinner only to find out it was "mangia".   She made this for dinner because it was economical.  She would scour the grocery store for discounted meat, which would be combined with … Continue reading →

Creamy Baked Chicken

Creamy Bacon topped Chicken

    I drove through my old neighborhood today.  By old, I mean the house I lived in from birth to 12 years old.  It felt so strange.  With every turn, I was flooded with memories and names.  It seemed as though each house had a special meaning to me.  I either knew some one who had lived there or I simply remember riding my bike  or playing with friends along those streets. The house I grew up in has changed quite a bit on the … Continue reading →

Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread

Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread

This post is a little early.  Tomorrow is moving day for us.   They say the top three stressors in life are death, divorce and moving.  I cannot speak on the first two, but I can attest to the third!  Holy crap, this month has been an emotional roller coaster. After packing my 1 millionth box (only a slight exaggeration), I had a breakdown.  I locked myself in my closet and cried.  I cried because of all the memories this house holds.  It's … Continue reading →

BLT Salmon

Salmon served with spinach, cherry tomatoes and crumbled bacon! www.lemonsforlulu.com

I was at the pool, yesterday with my kids.   It was a fabulous day, water was the perfect temperature, and the pool wasn't too crowded.  We were able to ride the waterslide with minimal wait.  Same goes for the diving board.  I don't do the diving board that often  anymore. I tried to tell my kids how much I USED to really love jumping off the diving board.  I USED to do flips and cartwheels into the pool.  Now I just do a petite little jump … Continue reading →
