I know nowadays is supposed to be Wellness Wednesday, but I’m having a tiny crack right until the New 12 months. No problems — I’ll be back future week with a new WW publish I know I have been absent for a while! I’m guessing we all in all probability have. This 12 months is this kind of a fantastic time to just kick up your toes, read through a new e-book, and just appreciate spouse and children time. And essentially each cookie in sight.

That remaining reported, I’ve accomplished my fair share of eating, consuming, and cooking. Tony’s birthday was very last week and I had the pleasure of generating him a version of King Arthur Flour’s deep dish pizza, then selfmade French Silk Pie for dessert. Swear to goodness, it was the very best meal I’ve at any time created him. The pie was fantastic. I really come to feel awful about not submitting the recipe, but it also looks a bit wrong to toss you a dessert comprehensive of butter, product and chocolate when we’re all attempting to consume nutritious again. What do you consider? If you’d like the recipe, I’d be satisfied to make it once again and photograph it. Enable me know!

Bacon Peanut Butter Caramel Corn with a dark chocolate drizzle in a bowl

Future up! I also celebrated my birthday in Chicago last week. (So of course, you can see how I have been so occupied outside of the weblog.) On the early morning of my birthday, Tony took me to brunch then we went to a no-eliminate animal shelter for each regular I needed to get property all of the cats. He also got me the cutest Michael Kors purse which I wear everywhere now. Later that evening, we went out to dinner and then to a exhibit. Overall, it was a definitely wonderful and soothing birthday.

This future week I’ll be diving again into baking and cooking. I’m making an attempt to shy absent from as well quite a few baking recipes, but you know it’s my favored matter to do. Total I have some really interesting items planned and possibly some new options on the blog, as well!

Okay, so popcorn time. This recipe was evidently so delightful that Tony ate an entire batch in one particular night. YEP… One Night.

Bacon Peanut Butter Caramel Corn with a dark chocolate drizzle in a bowl

I do not blame him. I’m a Big lover of sweet and salty popcorn. When I was little my mom employed to drizzled peanut butter on the prime of our popcorn, so that’s what truly inspired this recipe. It’s a minimal like caramel corn, besides not as crunchy and not extremely sweet.  I skipped the corn syrup and opted for honey as a substitute some bacon is also additional to the recipe for the reason that good day — peanut butter and bacon is the most magical combination. Ever.

This popcorn would be a superb addition to your New Year’s appetizer desk, or maybe even for a very little Sunday evening football motion. Both way, I hope you like it. And of study course, the chocolate drizzle is completely optional. If you want to go away it off, that is correctly wonderful. The popcorn is going off the chains. You can also make this a mix by incorporating pretzels and peanuts, or regardless of what you can get your arms on. I hope you have a safe and happy new calendar year. Xoxo.
