Don't let the name fool you, just like bacon can be a versatile ingredient, I too am very diverse. My blog features many recipes, with and without bacon, along with some of my other passions in life, family, friends, entertaining, crafting, home decorating, and fashion. I live a fun and sometimes crazy domesticated life, and I like to blog about it all.
I also believe that honesty and humor are important qualities and you will find both at Bacon Time. http://bacontimewiththehungryhypo.blogspot.com/
Well to be honest I haven't always loved food. Let me explain, when I was in high school and early college years I struggled with anorexia. Then while still in college, I was in a car accident and hurt my neck and back. I went from working out all the time to not exercising and gained 100 pounds. I struggled with food and losing weight for years. One day I finally said " that's it, I am going to eat what I want (with in reason) but work out everyday". Well guess what.... it worked. I lost all the weight I had gained and have kept it off for five years now, even after a second child. It wasn't until recently that I was diagnosed with the hypoglycemia. Which basically means I can never skip a meal, even thinking about skipping one seems to make me feel ill. I sometimes wonder if God gave me this disease as a reward for all my years spent struggling with my weight. I know this is not true, just bad genetics, both of my parents are diabetic. I have hopes of never developing diabetes. I still work out every single day religiously, and eat a balanced diet (no I don't eat bacon everyday).
After earning my BAs with a concentration in Fine Arts, I enjoyed working in a variety of fields, from teaching, counseling, fashion, real estate, and physical therapy. None of these fields have ever been as fulfilling as working in my kitchen. Over the last year, I have been fortunate enough to stop working outside of the home and focus on my family and my career in food. If I am not chasing my toddler, taking my 8 year old to soccer or school, then I am at home cooking, blogging, or creating something with my hands. Here is a taste of some of the things I have added to my blog as tutorials.
Yes that's me admiring a pair of shoes I coutured up. I am also wearing a belt and scarf I made, cute don't you think? I can make them for you too, you can find them on my new Etsy shop.http://www.etsy.com/shop/Mindiemay
All of these hand made pretties can be found at my online Shop TLC Creations!
Recently I have been on a mission to clean out my pantry and avoid buying new ingredients. So I made my breakfast wreath only using items I had on hand.
1 can of crescents 8count
5 large eggs
1 cup of shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese
8 slices of fully cooked bacon
|Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Scramble your eggs on stove top. Lay out crescents |
on a parchment lined pizza pan as shown above.
|Add your cooked bacon.|
Add about 1/3 of your cheese.
|Add your eggs and a third more of your cheese and fold crescents over.|
|Add the rest of your cheese to the top and bake for 17 minutes or until crescents are done |
and golden brown.
Here is another idea, I have made sweet instead of savory wreathes before. I once filled the center with jam and sweetened peanut butter. Then after it cooled I topped it with melted white chocolate. Super easy and beautiful, that's my style of cooking.
