I really enjoy doing the cooking in our relationship and I love to have Dr. Tonya join me, we have lots of fun cooking together. So since we enjoy it, I’ve decided to do an ongoing blog series entitled, “Cooking with Love.” Here’s the first recipe and there will be many more to come.
The holidays can be stressful on a relationship, with preparing to have family and friends over or making a dish to take to a work or family gathering. There are lots of potlucks, tree trimmings and holiday parties that may require you to bring a dish. You want to take something that is easy and fabulous, something that won’t take up too much of your precious time and that you and your sous chef can knock out in a short time.
Here’s a recipe that we tried last year for our annual holiday party at the Lesbian Couples Club Support Circle that was an epic hit. It’s sweet, salty and savory all at the same time and it’s BACON! It’s also very easy to make. It is a real crowd pleaser, give it a try for your next holiday get together, office party or family gathering and you’ll be the talk of the party. So grab your Boo, (even if it’s just for company) and keep it sexy, keep it simple and always cook with love.
