About Me

Phoenix, Arizona, United States
The most important thing in my life is my family. I love my dear husband and 4 wonderful children (ages 11 through 18). I am a stay-at-home mom (my dream job!). Some of my favorite things to do include cooking (and eating!), photography, reading, piano, flute, watching my favorite TV shows, swimming, traveling, and most recently...using the rip stick with my kids. I would love to attend culinary school someday & fit my love of photography in with that somehow. My dream vacation is Italy - something I was recently blessed to experience! I'd love to return and see more of that beautiful and DELICIOUS country! My days are usually full of running kids to and from activities - scouts, sports, music and church. Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe, but I absolutely LOVE my crazy life and the people I am lucky enough to share it with!

BROWN-SUGAR BACON (from Katie Lee Joel's THE COMFORT TABLE)

Fact: Bacon makes everything taste better. And this recipe actually makes bacon taste even better. The sugar caramelizes on the bacon and the mustard adds just a little kick. Serve it for breakfast, or after cooking break
it into l-inch pieces for a cocktail-party snack.

1 pound applewood-smoked bacon
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Preheat the oven to 4000 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Place a wire cooling rack on top.

In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar and mustard. Add the bacon and toss to coat. Layout the bacon slices flat on the rack. Brush with any remaining sugar. Roast the bacon for 25 to 30 minutes. Let drain on the rack for a few minutes before serving. Serve whole or cut into 1-inch pieces.

YIELD: 4 TO 6 SERVINGS
PREP TIME: 10 MINUTES
COOK TIME: 25 MINUTES
