Nothing says lovin’ like Candied Bacon, and it’s so easy to make. First, line a pan with foil and place cold, thick sliced bacon on a rack. Place in the oven and turn on the heat to 400 degrees. The bacon will be flat this way and slowly come to cook. After 10 minutes, turn the bacon over and baste with a jam of your choice ( highly recommend Lady Marmalade but any jam will be delish on bacon!) Rotate the pan back to front and cook for 3 minutes more, then turn over and baste this side with jam. Rotate again and cook for 2 more minutes or until slightly caramelized. The entire time is about 15-20 minutes.
Remove the pan and let cool before devouring or you’ll burn your mouth on the hot jam!

This recipe is a quick way to turn a simple pound cake into a delicacy.
First…toast some pound cake in butter ( here I used a store bought lemon 7up cake)
then plate and add a spoonful of mascarpone cheese
and finish with a spoonful of jam ( in this instance I used
Dawnjam for its vibrant peach and orange flavor.)
Delicious…fast…and worthy of company, or even just as a special treat for yourself!

If you’re looking for something unique to serve your friends ( or just to treat yourself ) this recipe is a winner! Simple…quick…but with a touch of elegance. It all starts with two pieces of sourdough bread ( be sure to face them together, then open, so the pieces will match )
and spread with your favorite Jammies ( here I used Tuscan Moon).
Start by buttering both outer sides of the bread ( or you can spray with a buttery non-stick spray )
while you heat your panini press. ( No press? use a fry pan on the stove and weight the san’ with another pan on top holding a can of tomatoes for added weight).
Press down firmly on top and grill until golden crisp on the outside. The cheese should just be starting to run out.
Now cut on the diagonal and enjoy!
