Exotec's Carrot-Raisin Salad

Apples make a sweet addition!

Cheesy Piggy Toes

The classic pigs-in-blankets, but made with mini cheddar sausages. Party platter favorite!

The Infamous Bacon Explosion, Vicki Version

This is my (minor) variation of the bacon creation concocted by a couple of competition BBQ guys - you can find it online at several sites now. It may be called a "Bacon Explosion", "Bacon Bomb", "Bacon Quilt", or some other name I haven't heard of yet. Many pictures of the process and the finished product are on the 'net.

While it has lots of bacon, and you'd expect it to be oily, it's NOT! All the bacon renderings drip away during cooking. Fear not. Really ;-)

It's sure to create interest and conversation at any gathering. You can cook it as recommended, on a grill, or (as I do) in the oven.

My ingredient list for the recipe calculator is approximate. Exact amounts will vary by your taste.

Lo-Carb Fluffy Winter Squash Souffle

Makes a tasty souffle. It's a nice way to use up leftover squash, too.

Rub for lamb roast

Nice flavor for roasted lamb.

Quick & Simple Mild Chili

We like mild chili; you may want to increase the "heat" a bit in your version!

Tarragon chicken

My favorite easy go-to chicken recipe.
