Ham-Burr-ger Helper

The role of today’s guest food blogger is played by Connie’s husband, Jamie.

Shortly after Connie launched A Ruby Reduction, I briefly entertained the thought of creating a companion blog focused entirely on the hamburger.

It seemed like a splendid idea at first … until I began to realize that in order to maintain such a site, I’d have to eat an (almost) ungodly number of burgers (and buns) on a regular basis.

Hey, I love hamburgers, but a man’s got his limits.

Chicken and Kidney Bean Soup

I mentioned before that soup is great because it can be made with basically anything from your pantry.  Well, this soup was supposed to be Minestrone but as I started gathering up all the ingredients, I realized that I was missing some key ingredients.  I had no spinach, no pasta and no navy beans.  So, as I rummaged around in the cupboard and freezer I grabbed some items and thought to myself, that I would make a mystery soup!

I was browsing around on Strawberry Ginger’s blog and stumbled across her recipe for Root Vegetable & Apple Soup.  My first reaction was Yummy!  Then I got thinking about making my own version of a Butternut Squash Soup.

Spicy Bacon

Bacon.  I love bacon.  It is one simple food that is absolutely delicious on its own or enhances any other dish. I would eat it every day if I could, and there are some weeks when we do!  Jamie and I have even baked with bacon (putting it in cookies and muffins) and the results are always outstanding.
